Dallas Theological Seminary believes our integrated 4-year Master of Theology (ThM) program offers deeper ministry preparation than a standard 3-year MDiv program. DTS is so committed to this model that we are offering free tuition for the final 24 required hours to every ThM student who is enrolled in classes in the spring 2022, summer 2022, fall 2022, spring 2023, and summer 2023 semesters.

We hope the “Last Year Free” scholarship program sends out a generation of debt-free, biblically-centered heralds of the gospel equipped to meet the changing needs of today’s church and culture.

Program Details and Eligibility

  • The “Last Year Free” scholarship will apply to the final 24 required hours of credit for Master of Theology (ThM) students enrolled in courses during the spring 2022, summer 2022, fall 2022, spring 2023, and summer 2023 semesters.
  • During the 24 hours of the scholarship, a student must take at least 6 hours of credit per semester at either the Dallas, Houston, Washington DC, or Atlanta campus (not online or at an extension site).
  • Students may use the “Last Year Free” scholarship in conjunction with other scholarships, including Advanced Standing, which can reduce the ThM by up to 30 hours, using qualifying credits from your undergraduate work (at ABHE and CCCU schools) or parachurch training. Used together, a student can earn a 120-hour degree by completing 90 hours of coursework and paying for only 66 credit hours.
  • The scholarship is not guaranteed for any students planning to enroll after summer 2023, so we urge you to apply today!
