In an effort to make theological education more affordable, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary offers a 50 percent discount on tuition to student spouses. This discount is available to whichever spouse is enrolled in fewer academic hours during a given semester. It applies only to tuition for on-campus courses. The student spouse discount will be applied after the Cooperative Program scholarship is applied.
If you serve on staff at a local church for at least 20 hours per week, we will waive the internet registration fee ($270 per course) for all classes, which is approximately 30% off the regular cost of tuition and fees. In order to receive the discount, students must complete and submit the eligibility application form located here.
Local church staff members can also lock in their tuition costs if they commit to pay the total in equal installments over the 24 consecutive months following enrollment. (Course work may be completed over the next three years.)
