Welcome New and Returning Students!
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 to Westminster students.
May God bless you as you seek to be a wise steward of His gifts.
