Concordia Theological Seminary – Fort Wayne, IN

One concern for many of our future students is the cost of seminary education. At CTSFW we’re aware of the strain that student loan debt can place on our graduates and we’re working with districts, congregations and Synod to solve that problem. One piece of that solution is doing everything we can to keep costs low, make sure you’re getting value for your money and find the best sources of financial aid to care for you and your family. If you have questions, please contact our admission department at admission@ctsfw.edu
