Financial Aid

Approximately how much does a seminary education cost?
For the 2016–2017 academic year, tuition was $14,500. A more detailed look at the cost of a seminary education is available here.

How do I finance my Princeton Seminary education?
Gifts from generous donors and alumni help to subsidize many of the costs faced by Princeton Theological Seminary students. Between 80% and 90% of our students receive institutional need-based grants or merit-based scholarships which cover most of their tuition. These funds reduce our students’ reliance on student loans.

Do you offer Merit-Based Scholarships?
The majority of the generous financial aid offered by Princeton Seminary is need-based. We do offer merit-based scholarships to a small portion of our admitted applicants, but as a matter of theological conviction we try to cover as many educational costs as we can for the greatest number of students. To apply for one of these merit-based awards, a prospective student must complete their application for admission by February 1, complete the Merit-based scholarship application (which is an optional part of the regular admissions application), and have an interview. For more information, contact the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid (admissions@ptsem.edu).
