Financial Aid

The seminary’s student financial aid program, including scholarships, a payment plan, and loans, offers students realistic opportunities to finance their education. The amount of scholarship available to students has increased in recent years—total aid available now exceeds $4 million. Students become eligible to apply for need based scholarships after submitting an application or being accepted for admission to the seminary. Students will be able to submit the application form digitally on students.dts.edu. Other documents may be required depending on the type of aid requested. The scholarship application deadline is two months before the application for admission deadline; thus, new students who intend to apply for scholarship should plan the admission process accordingly. For continuing students, applications for need-based scholarships must be submitted by February 28 for the fall semester and September 30 for the spring semester. Applications for new students must be submitted by May 1 for the fall semester and November 1 for the spring semester. All international student scholarships are awarded on an annual basis only and are due January 31 to be considered for the following academic year.
