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.
Each of the programs on the Columbia campus shares a beautiful piece in common, serving others. These programs all nurture students that are called to serve others...

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 and grants to students of all denominations. 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.
In support of continued efforts to improve the on-campus experience for students, faculty, staff and community members, The Cannon Charitable Trusts have awarded multiple grants totaling $436,990 to Lenoir-Rhyne University.
