Aspirant 

A person seeking ordination as a deacon or priest, or a person who desires to be admitted to a religious order. When an aspirant has received approval from the diocese to begin seminary or other required training, he or she becomes a postulant. An aspirant to a religious order is one who is preparing to test his or her vocation with the order. An aspirant may subsequently be admitted as a postulant and later as a novice with the approval of the community.
