Houston Tuition & Financing

At Truett Seminary, affordability is central to our mission. Both in Waco and in Houston, we are committed to helping our students receive an excellent seminary education at a manageable price.

Tuition (2020-2021)

The 2020-2021 tuition rate for master’s-level degree programs at Truett Seminary is $1,050 per hour. However, the Baptist General Convention of Texas and other generous donors provide scholarship funds that significantly reduce the tuition rate of Truett Seminary students. Thus, seminary students do not pay this full tuition rate and instead receive the discounted rates listed below.

DEGREE TUITION (includes per hour scholarship discount)
Master of Divinity* $525 per hour
Master of Arts in Christian Ministry $525 per hour
Master of Theological Studies $950 per hour

*Students may begin taking courses toward a Master of Divinity degree in Houston, but at least 50% of the Master of Divinity degree requirements must be completed residentially at Truett's Waco campus.

Fees and Books (2020-2021)

Fees and supplies are not included in the above tuition rates and are not affected by the general Truett scholarship.

Required Fees: $100 (per semester for a 9 hour course load)
Books $300 (estimate)
