Scholarships and Aid
The amount of financial aid available to students has increased in recent years, so that the total aid available now exceeds $2.1 million. Financial aid covers almost 20 percent of overall tuition costs at the Seminary. The Seminary's student financial aid program, which includes scholarships, Direct loans, and Tuition Management Systems (a monthly payment plan), offers students realistic opportunities to finance their education at DTS.
The VA Post 9/11 is a benefit whereby anyone who was on active duty after 9/11/01 for a minimum of 90 aggregate days is eligible for educational aid. Benefits go toward tuition and fees, monthly housing allowance, and a book stipend; this can be used at a school approved for benefits by the Veterans Administration. The amount granted is based on the length of time served. For more information contact the Registrar's Office by phone (214-841-3608) or by email.
