Last Year Free – ThM

Last Year Free – ThM

Dallas Theological Seminary believes our integrated 4-year Master of Theology (ThM) program offers deeper ministry preparation than a standard 3-year MDiv program. DTS is so committed to this model that we are offering free tuition for the final 24 required hours to every ThM student who is enrolled in classes in the fall 2017 or spring 2018 semesters.


  • The “Last Year Free” scholarship will apply to the final 24 required hours of credit for Master of Theology (ThM) students enrolled in courses during the fall 2017 or spring 2018 semesters.
  • During the 24 hours of the scholarship, a student must take at least 6 hours of credit per semester at either the Dallas, Houston, or Washington DC campus (not online or at an extension site).
  • Students may use the “Last Year Free” scholarship in conjunction with other scholarships, including Advanced Standing, which can reduce the ThM by up to 30 hours, using qualifying credits from your undergraduate work (at ABHE and CCCU schools) or parachurch training. Used together, a student can earn a 120-hour degree by completing 90 hours of coursework and paying for only 66 credit hours.
  • The scholarship is not guaranteed for any students planning to enroll after spring 2018, so we urge you to apply today! Additional details and Frequently Asked Questions for current students.
