Tuition and Financial Aid

At the UD School of Ministry, 93% of students who request financial aid receive tuition assistance in the form of grants or scholarships.

University financial aid is made possible by the generosity of benefactors of the School of Ministry and the endowment of the University of Dallas. They reflect the University's commitment to the students of the School of Ministry in its mission to meet the needs of the local church. Generous awards are available and every effort is made to make our program affordable.

Scholarships

School of Ministry Graduate Tuition Scholarships are financial awards given to students by the University in recognition of exceptional academic promise, demonstrated by a record of outstanding achievement in previous academic work.  Scholarships are applied to the tuition costs of students for course work which meets the requirements of the School of Ministry degree programs.

Standardized test scores are not considered in the determination of scholarship awards. One may also request a review of one's scholarship status, as need dictates. Students must submit a formal request for scholarship renewal, as well as a FAFSA, annually.
