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.

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.
  • During the 24 hours of the scholarship, a student must take at least 6 hours of credit per semester. The scholarship applies to in-person and video conferencing classes with scheduled meeting times, but the scholarship does not cover prerecorded online (OL) classes.
  • Students may use the “Last Year Free” scholarship in conjunction with other scholarships, including Advanced Standing, which can reduce the ThM by up to 40 credit hours (one-third of the degree).
