Alumni and Placement
More than 16,000 alumni have studied at Dallas Theological Seminary. They currently serve in all 50 states and in more than 100 countries, teaching the Bible in more than 70 denominations and independent churches. DTS is committed to the success of its alumni and provides support, resources, and networking in the following ways.
The Placement office offers a lifetime of support for DTS graduates and provides consultation to graduating students, alumni, and ministries in the placement process. Its services include assistance with résumé development, interviewing and candidating, and compensation guidelines. The Placement office also helps ministries search for candidates and maintains a list of ministry opportunities through the Placement website.

Ways to Stay Connected
In addition to providing placement services, DTS seeks to foster and maintain a network for seminary alumni through other means such as the publication, DTS Magazine; monthly email updates, eNews; and a password protected online Alumni Directory. The alumni-only website (www.dts.edu/alumni) fosters a networking community among alumni. The seminary helps its constituents find churches, schools, and counselors that employ DTS graduates through its online locator.
DTS is committed to continuing education for alumni in order to address the changing demands of ministry as well as current biblical and theological issues.
Through the alumni-only website, graduates are able to view online courses free of charge. They may also audit master’s-level courses for a small fee or take courses for credit at a reduced rate. Courses taken for credit cannot be applied toward another degree at the seminary unless the full tuition rate is paid; however, these courses may be transferable to other graduate institutions.
CGS Completion for Nongraduate Alumni
Quali ed nongraduate alumni may apply to complete the Certificate of Biblical and Theological Studies at the Alumni Nondegree tuition rate. The program requires readmission to the seminary and completion of all remaining CGS requirements. Interested alumni will need to complete at least one course the semester before graduation, even if all other requirements have been previously met.
