Financial Aid

Financial Aid

Your Western Seminary training will carry value that lasts for a lifetime of Christian service — it will also carry the tuition costs of training at a premier ministry training school. Fortunately, we offer financial aid such as grants, scholarships, and student loans to help make your training affordable, and you can arrange a payment plan through the business office.

Our financial aid staff is 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, students must be enrolled at least half-time in an academic program and must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress.
  • The average grant/scholarship award offers a 27% discount on tuition, while the median award offers a 20% discount on tuition.
  • Non-degree, Coaching, and Audit/Enrichment students are not eligible for financial aid.
