The on-line application for the Master's level need-based aid is available at MyPTS or hard copies of the 2016-2017 Financial Aid Application for need-based aid for all masters degree programs can also be downloaded. Please have your FAFSA completed with the application.

Students enrolled in summer credits at PTS may borrow a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan. Please complete the Summer Loan Request Form and the 2016-2017 FAFSA. The 2016-2017 Tuition Grant will be applied to the 2016 summer credits. As always, CPE is not covered by PTS aid. There are no Merit Scholarships, Housing Grants, or Work Support opportunities during the summer months.
Update Policy: The Financial Aid Committee met April 28, 2015, to clarify policies beginning in 2015-2016. PTS will diligently enforce the long-standing rule of one Housing Grant per unit.The $100 grant will be split among qualifying students. Beginning with the 2016-2017 academic year, students may receive a maximum of 150 percent of the cost of tuition from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary funding. Students may continue to seek outside sources of aid to add to that amount.
