Tuition & Aid
Due to the generous contributions of Mercer University, supporting churches, and our educational partners, McAfee School of Theology is one of the most affordable options for theological education. Because of our commitment to lowering student debt, every student at McAfee receives a grant covering over 50% of tuition, which cuts the true cost ($910/credit hour) of a seminary education dramatically. Merit scholarships are also available to those who qualify. Eligibility is determined by each prospective student's total admissions application, including potential for leadership in service and ministry. No separate application is required; all admissions applications are reviewed for scholarship eligibility.
