Think you can't afford seminary training? Think again!

Western Seminary delivers the highest caliber of theological education on campus or via online studies, ensuring that students enjoy Gospel-centered training that’s entirely trustworthy and globally accessible. Don’t settle for anything less.

High-quality training comes at a cost, and we’ll do our best to ensure that cost doesn’t stop you from taking your next steps in ministry education with us.

Please be aware that most recipients will qualify for a percentage of aid in the middle of the thresholds below, and a rare few will receive the maximum.
