Truett Seminary applies over $5.5 million in scholarship and institutional support every year. This is made possible by the generosity of Baylor University as well as many other gracious donors and supporters.
Scholarship awards are limited to published attempted hours total. Scholarship awards may be extended for Baptist students and students in the joint degree programs. Click here to view current tuition rates for Baylor's Truett Seminary.
Denominational Student Scholarships
Both active members of Baptist* churches and active members of Wesleyan/Methodist churches are eligible to receive additional scholarships. We are grateful to the generosity of the Baptist General Convention of Texas for providing the Baptist student scholarships and to the supporters who have made the Wesleyan/Methodist scholarships possible.

The appropriate completed Church Certification Forms are required for receipt of these denominational scholarships.
*Incoming students who are members of any Baptist church may initially qualify for the Baptist Certification Scholarship and may have their church sign off on the Baptist Church Certification Form. In subsequent years, in order to continue to receive the Baptist Certification Scholarship, students must be involved with a Baptist General Convention of Texas (BGCT), or Texas Baptists, church and have that church sign off on the Baptist Church Recertification Form by March 1. (Due to the online nature of the program, students pursuing the MA in Theology and Sports Studies may continue to qualify for the scholarship by attending any Baptist church.) Failure to submit the Church Certification Renewal Form to the Truett Seminary Scholarships office within the deadline will constitute a forfeiture of assistance. Renewal forms received after the deadline will be considered for subsequent semesters within the remainder of the appropriate academic year.
Competitive Tuition Scholarships
Truett Seminary awards a number of scholarships to incoming students, ranging up to the full cost of tuition. All incoming students are encouraged to complete the Truett Scholarship Application in order to be considered for a full or partial tuition scholarship award.
Accepted students are welcome and encouraged to utilize the Matching Scholarship resources provided in order to request additional scholarship funds from their church. This includes Baptist, Wesleyan/Methodist, and other denominations.
