^ DTS extension campuses and sites (Atlanta, Austin, Nashville, and San Antonio) have specialized Financial Aid funding. Contact Admissions for more information.

* Estimated tuition does not include the cost of books. Additionally, you should estimate $285 for fees. Fees cover items such as technology resources, monitored parking lots, and on-campus facilities (library, wifi, etc.).

** DTS provides a monthly payment system called Tuition Management Systems (TMS) which allows you to pay your tuition in 5 payments over a semester or 10 payments over a year. This estimate is based on 5 payments.

Scholarship estimates are for the Dallas, Houston, and Washington, DC campuses and apply for second semester and beyond. Incoming DTS students typically receive a $2,000 scholarship for their first semester. Final scholarship amounts depend on availability of funds and the number of students who apply. DMin students are traditionally supported by their sending ministry.
