Students must apply for financial aid each academic year.
Free Application for Federal Student Aid, FAFSA
In December, the Department of Education will e-mail a reminder to applicants who previously filed the FAFSA on-line to complete the new FAFSA Renewal Online. A FAFSA must be completed each year with the previous year's financial and personal data.
Applying for a New Loan
Students do NOT have to file a new Federal Direct Loan Master Promissory Note or Federal Entrance Counseling Session but must submit a signed Direct Loan Request Form to the Financial Aid Office each year. Loan processing will begin in June for the new academic year and continue throughout the academic year.
PTS Grants and Scholarships
Students must apply for institutional grants each year by submitting the FAFSA, Master's PTS Application, DMin PTS Application and supporting documentation. Applications are evaluated on a rolling basis. Grants will be awarded until the funds are exhausted. In addition to applying on time, students must demonstrate need and meet the satisfactory academic progress (SAP) requirements.
Merit scholarships are awarded to incoming students. Funds are automatically renewed if students meet the satisfactory academic progress requirements (SAP). Scholarships to those enrolled in the Master of Divinity program can be renewed for a maximum of three years. All other master's degree program have a two year eligibility maximum to receive the scholarship.
