Logos Bible Software
Dallas Theological Seminary is committed to equipping godly servant-leaders for the proclamation of God’s Word and the building up of the body of Christ worldwide. Because study of the entire Bible is a central characteristic of the curriculum, DTS has partnered with Faithlife to provide students with a custom Logos Bible Software package filled with over $14,000 worth of books and tools.
Every student who graduates from any master’s or doctoral degree program will keep their Logos package for life!
How to Get Started
Any enrolled DTS student taking a course for credit will be given access to Logos before the beginning of their first course. Once Faithlife sends notification stating your account is ready, next steps can be found at www.logos.com/academic-start.
Why is DTS providing Logos to students?
DTS believes in equipping lifelong learners, whether on the Dallas campus or around the world, with the best tools and training available so that they will experience fruitful ministries for years to come.
How do I start using Logos? What apps are available?
First, DTS will have your Logos account created. This will take place before your first course begins. Once the account is ready, you will receive notification via email from Faithlife.
Second, you can go to www.logos.com/academic-start for next steps.
DTS students have access to the Logos web app, mobile app, and the full-featured installed version. You can install Logos on as many devices as you need, as long as they are for personal use.
Which students get access to Logos?
Any enrolled DTS student taking a course for credit will be given access to Logos. Unfortunately, audit-only students will not receive Logos.
How long will I have Logos? What if I don’t graduate?
Logos is designed to be a lifelong resource for DTS students and graduates. All enrolled students have access while they are taking courses at DTS. Students who graduate from any master’s or doctoral degree program will keep their Logos access for life.
Unfortunately, graduates of the Graduate Certificate of Christian Studies will not retain access after graduation.
What if I already own Logos?
DTS will “unlock” the school Logos package on the Logos account associated with the personal email address you provide. If the personal email address you have on file with the school is the same as the email address on your existing Logos account, the DTS Logos package will simply be added to what you already own. If the personal email address you have on file with the school is not the same as the email address on your existing Logos account, a new account will be created resulting in you having multiple accounts.
If you end up with multiple Logos accounts, you can request for them to be merged into one. To do this, contact Logos Customer Support at 1-800-875-6467 or [email protected]. Be ready to provide both email addresses when you request the merge.
Who do I contact if I’m having trouble?
Faithlife has an incredible Customer Support team who can help you troubleshoot any problems you may be experiencing with Logos. You will find support options at www.logos.com/contact-support.

The DTS Logos Package
The DTS Logos Package is filled with thousands of resources for biblical and theological study. There are three main parts to the DTS package students receive:
- Logos Full Features
Every student receives the latest and greatest Logos tools available. You will also receive free upgrades to new versions while you are an active student. Upon graduation, you will own the current version and will no longer receive free upgrades.
- DTS Logos Library
The DTS Logos Library is a custom collection of resources designed to support the needs of DTS students and benefit their future ministries. DTS provides these libraries in English, Spanish, and Chinese. Upon graduation, you will own this library permanently.
- Remote Research Library (temporary)
DTS is passionate about providing an abundance of resources to students even if they do not have access to a physical library. As a result, DTS has also provided students with temporary access to the Remote Research Library in Logos. Upon graduation, access to the resources in this collection will be removed.
The following bundles make up this temporary collection:
- Lexham Remote Research Library
- Galaxie’s Theological Journals
- Classic Scholarship Collection
- Logos Mobile Education Video Library (video only)
Can I pick the Logos package I receive?
DTS will provide students with a Logos package based upon availability and the language of the degree program enrolled in. In other words, students in a Chinese degree program will automatically receive a Chinese Logos package, etc. Students do not have the ability to choose or change the package they receive.
How many books should I have in my Logos library?
DTS students should have approximately 3,600-3,800 resources in their Logos library.
The English DTS Logos Library contains approximately 800 resources. The Spanish DTS Logos Library contains approximately 700 resources. The Chinese DTS Logos Library contains approximately 800 resources.
The temporary Remote Research Library contains approximately 2,900 resources.
Does the DTS Logos package contain textbooks for my classes?
Your Logos library will include approximately $300-$700 of required books (depending on the degree program). Some course textbooks will be included, while others will not. Simply search your Logos library to see if you have a specific resource.
Can I purchase additional books for Logos?
You can make additional purchases for Logos because your account belongs to you. If you do not graduate, DTS will remove your access to the DTS Logos package, but anything you have purchased will remain. In other words, you will always own anything you pay for.
To add an additional textbook to your Logos account simply go to www.logos.com, search for the book, and add it to your cart. As long as you are signed in with the correct account, your book will immediately be added to your Logos library after checkout.
Who pays for my DTS Logos package?
DTS underwrites the cost of Logos through donor support and a small portion of the technology fee.
How can I save money on books for Logos?
Faithlife has a great Academic Discount program designed to help you save money. To apply for the Academic Discount, go to www.logos.com/academic-discount.
Enrollment in the program does not guarantee that every book will have a discounted price. Even so, once enrolled you will see your best price when you shop on logos.com. You will need to renew your application every six months.
