D.Min Program Costs

Tuition and Fees

Total tuition and fees for the D.Min degree is approximately $18,000 over three years. Students pay approximately $6,000 per year. Charges are posted to student accounts in Summer, Fall and Spring semesters.  If desired, the Business Office will set up monthly payment plans for students.  NOTE: All tuition and fees listed apply to the current academic year only, and are subject to change annually.

Other Expenses

In addition, students are responsible for the following costs per residency:  lodging, most meals, textbooks, international visa fees, international student health insurance, and the cost of travel to and from campus.  The estimated total of these expenses, not including travel, is approximately $1,000 to $1,300. 

Financial Partners Opportunities

Local churches, mission agencies, and denominations, as well as individual donors, are often willing to underwrite some or all of the program costs for promising Doctor of Ministry students.  These entities see their financial contributions as an investment in the current and future ministries of students, as well as an investment in their own ministries.  We encourage you to consider these collaborative possibilities with individuals and organizations with whom you are connected.

Through a generous gift from the Ralph Waldo Beeson estate, there are a limited number of scholarships available to assist with a portion of the costs for students of exceptional merit who are admitted to the Preaching and Leading: Shaping Prophetic Communities D.Min cohort. The awards are made by the Beeson Scholarship selection committee after a careful review of admitted students’ completed files.

The scholarship includes:

  • Full/partial coverage of tuition and fees; and
  • Reimbursement of course-related travel.
