Financial Aid

Financial Aid

Pastors who are active in the ministry of the WELS or in churches of its confessional fellowship are eligible to apply for tuition assistance.

For those receiving tuition dollars from their calling body, the seminary will match dollar for dollar whatever a calling body contributes toward their pastor’s tuition for any for-credit WLS course taken on campus, online, or at a satellite location. This essentially cuts the cost of each course in half.

For those who do not receive any tuition support from their calling body, some non-matching scholarship monies are also available. The same online application form is used for both types of scholarship applications.

Since the seminary does not have unlimited tuition assistance available, those enrolling for courses are encouraged to apply for their scholarships as early as possible to avoid missing out on such scholarships.
