Tuition and Financial Aid

The School of Theology assumes that all its students are in need of significant financial help to afford their seminary education. That is why the vast majority of students studying here receive generous financial aid. The cost of the School of Theology’s tuition is less than half the cost of attending Boston University at the undergraduate level. We allocate the financial aid funds offered by the University, the United Methodist Church, and individual donors as widely as possible to benefit the most students. Additional merit fellowships are set aside to reward academic excellence and extra-curricular distinction. For all of these reasons we expect that School of Theology graduates will be able to follow their vocational passions without being weighed down by tremendous educational debt upon graduation.

Scholarship and Fellowships

Almost all Boston University STH Master’s and PhD students receive a partial or full-tuition scholarship. Information about the scholarships available to STH students is available here.
