Other Financing Resources
In addition to scholarships, Stafford loans, and the TMS payment plan, there are other ways to finance your education at Dallas Theological Seminary.
Eligible veterans may receive many of the GI Bill education benefits 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 (214-887-5350) or by email.
Some students have secured sizable grants by locating foundations associated with their parents, employers, regional areas, scholastic ability, or personal vocational interests. Before arriving on campus, students may research these options at a local library and on the Internet.
United Parcel Service (UPS)
UPS offers $3,000-$4,000 in tuition reimbursement for employees. If you are interested in becoming an employee and pursuing this opportunity, contact Eric Day, a DTS student and UPS employee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students with Physical Disabilities
Students who have physical disabilities and are enrolled or will be enrolled at DTS should contact the Texas Rehabilitation Commission regarding financial aid for the disabled. Students in this category will also be considered for financial assistance by Student Financial Services, provided the necessary forms have been submitted.
Canadian Student Loans
Canadian students may secure low-interest, deferred payment loans under this program through participating banks in their province of residence.
