Every seminarian deserves access to an affordable education. We have the resources to make it happen.
A top-quality seminary education is both accessible and affordable at Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary. We believe financial obstacles should never stand in the way of your learning or your call to ministry.
I am grateful for the rigor of the courses, which required us to dig deep into the scripture and ourselves as we studied the word of God.

Cost of Attendance
You want to serve and to lead, and we want to help. At LTSS, our mission is to glorify God by preparing seminarians to be equipped to serve as transformational leaders for church and society. In our view, affordability should not be a barrier to earn your master’s degree.
We are committed to offering generous scholarships to students of all denominations, up to full-tuition grants. ELCA students who receive a Fund for Leaders tuition grant receive an LTSS grant which covers up to the full cost of on-campus housing.
The Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary of Lenoir-Rhyne University has launched Freed to Serve, a program aimed at eliminating tuition costs for seminarians within the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
