Financial Aid

Your Western Seminary training will carry value that lasts for a lifetime of Christian service — and it will also carry the tuition costs of training at a premier ministry training school. Fortunately, we also offer various types of financial aid such as scholarships, loans, and payment plans to help make your training affordable. Our experienced financial aid staff are also available to help you make responsible decisions about paying for school today so that your future in ministry won’t be hindered.

  • In order to qualify for most kinds of financial aid below, students must be enrolled at least half-time (4 hours) and be admitted to a degree or Graduate Studies program.
  • Non-degree students are not eligible for financial assistance.
  • Most eligible students may receive more than one grant or scholarship but only up to a maximum of 20% of tuition for a term.
  • Occasionally, an eligible student may qualify to receive a scholarship for an even greater percentage of tuition, up to 100%.
