Financial Aid

Here at Westminster every effort is made to keep Westminster students' expenses as low as possible. Because of gifts from friends of the seminary, students pay only a portion of the real cost of their education.   However, we understand that the cost of obtaining a quality education is still significant. Therefore, our goal is to provide financial assistance to those students who, without such assistance, would be unable to benefit from a Westminster education.

The Financial aid office is here to help you. Please let us be a resource as you consider the types of financial aid available.  May God bless you as you seek to be a wise steward of His gifts.
