FINANCIAL AID

Te Seminary’s student fnancial aid program,
including scholarships, loans, and a payment
plan, ofers students realistic opportunities
to fnance their education. Te amount of
scholarship available to students has increased
in recent years—total aid available now exceeds
$2.5 million.

To apply for need-based scholarships you
must be an accepted student. Students will be
able to submit the application form digitally
from the Student CampusNet. Other documents
may be required depending on the type of aid
requested.

For continuing students, applications for
need-based scholarships must be submitted
by February 28 for the fall semester and
September 30 for the spring semester. For
continuing international students, scholarships
are awarded annually only and must be submitted
by January 31. Applications for new students
must be submitted by May 1 for the fall semester
and November 1 for the spring semester. For
new international students, scholarships are
awarded on an annual basis only and are due
January 1 to be considered for the following
academic year.

Applications for scholarship will not be considered
until an applicant is accepted for admission
to the Seminary. Te scholarship application
deadline is two months before the application
for admission deadline; thus, new students
who intend to apply for scholarship should
plan the admission process accordingly.

Financial aid is distributed as tuition scholarship
grants. Financial need is the primary criterion
for the distribution of institutional aid.
Secondary criteria include academic program,
academic load, and academic performance.
Applications for scholarship are reviewed by
the Director of Financial Aid and the Financial
Aid Committee.

ELIGIBILITY

To be eligible for scholarship, a student must
have fnancial need, be employed, have a
GPA of 2.5 or higher, and not be in default or
delinquent on any account or loan program
with the Seminary.

Te number of hours required to qualify for
fnancial aid varies by location. Students must
take 12 hours at the Dallas campus, 6 hours at
the Houston campus, or at least one course at
all other extension sites. Online-only students
are not eligible to receive fnancial aid. For
more information contact the Financial Aid
ofce.

If you receive scholarship through the Seminary
and you receive additional outside assistance,
you must report this immediately to the Financial
Aid ofce. Name and address changes and
changes in academic course load also must be
reported.

DETERMINATION OF FINANCIAL AID

After receiving the need-based scholarship
application form, the Financial Aid ofce will
determine students’ needs and the types of
awards for which they qualify.

Financial need is determined by calculating the
diference between the cost of attending the
Seminary and the resources available to the
student. Terefore, fnancial need equals the
cost of attendance minus student contribution
and outside resources.

Students are expected to contribute toward the
cost of their education from summer earnings
and from employment during the academic
year. Financial Aid personnel are available
to counsel students about their educational
fnancial situations.

DIRECT LOAN PROGRAM

Te Seminary participates in the Direct Loan
Program. It provides limited funds at a low
interest rate and delayed repayment schedule
to eligible students. Te interest (on loans
borrowed prior to Fall 2012) and principal
repayments are deferred as long as the student
remains on at least half-time status in an
approved degree program. Nondegree students
are not eligible for direct loans.

Students may apply for an unsubsidized Direct
Loan where interest payments can be made
monthly, or capitalized per a designated period
of time.

To apply for a Direct Loan the student must
submit a Free Application for Federal Student
Aid (FAFSA) to the Department of Education.
Te FAFSA may be completed online at
http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. It is used to determine
financial need. Once processed by the
Department of Education, a Student Aid
Report (SAR) will be available. Te school code
for DTS is G03562. Entering the school code on
the FAFSA application will ensure that student
information will be sent electronically to DTS.
In addition to the SAR, a Master Promissory
Note and a Loan Request Form are required to
process a Direct Loan. Forms are available
online at www.dts.edu. Choose “Departments,”
then choose “Financial Aid,” then “Direct
Loans.”
