What is the CTSFW tuition grant and how is it calculated?
The foundation of the Seminary’s financial aid program for students in programs leading to ordination and for deaconess students is the Seminary tuition grant that is disbursed for each term in the regular academic year. Eligible residential church worker students will be offered full 100% tuition coverage by obtaining the necessary consent form from the Seminary’s Office of Financial Aid. Students may also receive support in varying amounts from their home congregations, their home districts, and other outside sources, which could count toward their full 100% tuition coverage. Seminary tuition grant funds are awarded only to help students pay for courses that apply to their program. Financial aid is not available for courses taken in addition to those needed for graduation in one’s program. The pre-seminary Summer and Fall Greek courses are covered with 100% Tuition coverage; however, online Greek and other prerequisite courses (OT Bible and NT Bible) are not eligible for the Seminary tuition grant.
