Welcome to the Financial Aid Office! We are dedicated to providing the best possible services to support our students who are preparing to teach the faithful, reach the lost and to care for all. This supports the mission of the seminary which forms these servants in Jesus Christ.

Financial aid is an important aspect to consider before attending Concordia Theological Seminary. Students should learn as much as they can about what aid is available before enrolling. Many of our degree programs are eligible to receive grant money from the seminary. Federal Student Loans and Federal Work Study are available for those who qualify. Outside scholarships and grants are also available by meeting the required criteria. Application forms must be submitted and deadlines must be followed in order to be considered for any financial aid.

Please see the menu of options to the left of this screen – just click on the area of your interest. The FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page offers you step by step instructions concerning what you need to do in order to receive financial aid. The staff of the Financial Aid Office is always happy to answer your questions. Advance financial planning is always best for having a productive seminary experience.
