Board of Trustees Announces Tuition Freeze for 2022-2023 Academic Year
Guaranteed tuition rates complement financial aid to improve affordability for seminarians
DAYTON, Ohio, April 6, 2022 — The United Theological Seminary Board of Trustees recently approved United President Kent Millard’s proposal to offer a Tuition Guarantee for all current and incoming students. Beginning in the 2022-23 academic year, students will not see a tuition increase during their time of active study at United.
“United is committed to making seminary affordable for everyone who feels called by God to serve in Christian ministry,” President Millard said. “With the assurance that their tuition will not increase, students can focus on their academic and spiritual growth in seminary.”
In addition to the new Tuition Guarantee, the Seminary plans to increase substantially its funding for student aid in the 2022-2023 academic year. The Board of Trustees will review and approve the funds allocated for student aid at its next meeting in May 2022. Part of the increased funding will come from monies previously committed to mortgage payments. Following a successful “Burn the Mortgage” campaign, completed on the Seminary’s 150th anniversary in October 2021, additional funds have been made available to support student scholarships.
“We give thanks to God for the many alumni/ae and other supporters who have contributed financially to United’s mission over the years. Their generosity makes it possible for United to invest even more in students answering God’s call on their lives,” said President Millard. “By guaranteeing tuition rates and expanding scholarship opportunities, United can help seminarians graduate with less debt as they begin their ministries.”
United is now accepting applications for the Fall 2022 term. Learn more about the Tuition Guarantee at united.edu/tuition-guarantee.
