Truett Tuition Assistance

Affordability is central to Truett’s mission. Numerous donors, churches, and organizations partner with Truett Seminary to financially commit to helping students achieve their goals of an excellent seminary education.

Truett Scholarships are approved and awarded to an applicant following admission (accepted and deposit submitted), based on the scholarship program and requirements for a given degree that academic year. This basis remains in effect throughout the program (M.Div. 87 attempted hours, M.A.C.M. 60 attempted hours, M.T.S. 48 attempted hours, M.A.T.E.F.J. 45 attempted hours, M.A.T.S.S. 39 attempted hours, M.A.C.W.I. 38 attempted hours,) for students who remain in good standing and meet appropriate requirements within the Truett scholarship. Requirements provide that 1) all students file a Ministerial Vocation Update and 2) Baptist students file an annual church certification renewal form by March 1 prior to the upcoming academic year. This date is also a benchmark for all incoming summer and fall students to file their initial Church Certification form from their home church as it allows for all financial processes to be completed before bills are processed and due.

The Office of Student Services at Truett Seminary is responsible for ensuring that appropriate scholarships cease at the attempted hour benchmark, including transfer hours. In order to be aware of their scholarship status benchmarks, all students should confirm attempted, transferred, and earned hours from online resources following receipt of grades each semester.

Prerequisite courses within concentrations with one or more credit hours will be assessed seminary tuition rate, yet are not awarded Truett scholarship funds. It is suggested that students plan for additional costs and contact Scholarship Services following registration and prior to billing by the University (see Financial Information).

As a reminder: the Scholarship Committee of Truett Seminary reserves the right at any time to review, reduce, increase, or rescind student scholarships given by Baylor University, the Baptist General Convention of Texas, the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship or any endowed, or additional, scholarship given for the benefit of Baylor University or Truett Seminary. There may be occasions in which students receiving endowed funds will be expected to correspond with donors.
