Tuition, Fees, and Costs

  • Tuition, Fees, and Average Costs

    Logsdon Seminary makes every effort to offer the highest level of graduate theological education at affordable costs. As students prepare for seminary, careful consideration to financial matters will facilitate the successful completion of the degree program. Students should give consideration to the total range of expenses required throughout the seminary educational experience. Planning should include anticipated costs associated with moving, books, tuition, fees, housing, and other living expenses. Available personal and family financial resources should be assessed as well as income from anticipated employment. Recognizing that students often require financial aid beyond personal and family resources, Hardin-Simmons University and Logsdon Seminary administer a substantial range of financial assistance.

All Baptist students qualify for BGCT Ministerial Financial Assistance of $150 per semester hour for the MDiv and $100 per hour for the MAFM, which with additional Logsdon scholarship results in an effective tuition rate of $208 per hour. To continue the BGCT assistance after the first year, the student must be a member of a BGCT affiliated church.2.
