We're committed to making your degree affordable.

We offer exceptionally generous scholarships, up to full tuition plus stipends. Aid is available for full- and part-time students.

The cost of your theological education is manageable at MTSO, and we are committed to supporting your academic goals.

  • If you have a 3.0 or higher undergraduate GPA, you may be eligible to receive a full-tuition scholarship.
  • If you are a United Methodist certified candidate for ministry, you are eligible to receive a full-tuition scholarship.
  • In addition to receiving MTSO scholarships, many students successfully apply for scholarship funding from their denominations. United Methodist students are encouraged to explore options from the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry and the United Methodist Higher Education Foundation.

You don't need to apply separately for an MTSO merit-based scholarship. Your admission application is also your scholarship application.
