What is it?
After a student is evaluated for the Tuition Grant, those with greater need may also qualify for a Housing Grant. The Housing Grant is awarded for PTS on-campus student housing only.
Range of award?
Housing Grant per academic year is $900. A qualifying student must live in PTS housing to have a $100 applied to his/her account each month between September and May. This amount will be prorated if a student moves from PTS housing. There is a maximum of one Housing Grant per PTS unit to be divided between the qualifying students.
Full-time students (enrolled for nine or more credits) in a Master's program, demonstrating financial need, and who are members of a church. For specifics, see the Catalog. Students who are in a “default status” on their federal educational loans are ineligible for institutional aid. Applications will not be processed until any previous Seminary (PTS) past due amount is paid in full and the student is in good-standing. Students who received financial aid to complete one degree program are not eligible for financial aid for a second-degree program until three years (nine terms) have passed.
How do I apply?
- Submit a PTS Financial Aid Application . If applicable, submit signed copy of foreign, Puerto Rico, or other US Territory Tax Form.
- File a FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IDR) to bring your tax information into the FAFSA.
- If choosing NOT to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IDR), call the IRS and request a Tax Transcript. The signed Tax Transcript must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office. Copies of Federal 1040s will no longer be accepted by PTS.
What is the deadline?
Applications are reviewed on a "first come- first served" basis until funds are expended. Early application is encouraged. Incomplete packets will not be processed. Students must re-apply each academic year. A student is NOT guaranteed to receive need-based aid every year. He/she must qualify financially and submit an application early. Additional details can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions section.
