Financial Aid Office

Welcome to the Financial Aid Office!

We are dedicated to providing the best possible service to support our students who are being formed as servants in Jesus Christ who will teach the faithful, reach the lost and to care for all.

Financial aid is an important aspect to consider before attending Concordia Theological Seminary.  You should learn as much as you can about what aid is available before enrolling.  Many of our degree programs are eligible to receive a partial tuition grant from the Seminary.  Federal Student Loans and Federal Work Study are also available for those who qualify.  Outside scholarships and other grants are available for those who meet the required criteria.  Application forms must be submitted each academic year and deadlines must be followed in order to be considered for any financial aid.  The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page offers you step by step instructions on what you need to do in order to receive financial aid.

How Can I Pay for Seminary?

Paying for SMP

Because SMP is not a full time program and does not confer a degree at its end, students in the program are not eligible for many common source of financial aid, including federal funding.  Students seeking to enroll in the SMP program should coordinate closely with congregational leaders as well as their District President to see what solutions are available for funding their studies.
