Asbury Seminary Email

Your Asbury Seminary email address will be created as soon as you are admitted. You can access your email through your oneATS account (see above). You will want to check this email regularly, since we will use it to send all official Seminary communications.

An overview of email functions can be found under the email “help” section. If you have difficulty, please contact Information Commons by emailing or by calling either 866.454.2733 or 859.858.2233.

Financial Aid

Funding your education by implementing wise stewardship principles will be an important part of your educational experience.  While scholarships for D.Min. students are awarded only to those selected to a Beeson program, a number of other forms of financial aid may be available to students who are already in ministry. The Financial Aid Office can assist you in determining the types of aid for which you qualify, and they can also help you get started with the application process. You can reach them by email at

Committing to Asbury Seminary

Confirm Your Admission

Let us know that you intend to come by submitting a matriculation deposit to your student account. This $100 non-refundable deposit will not only confirm your status as a student, but it will also go toward your first semester’s tuition. This will allow us to send your file to the Registrar’s Office so they can create your student program enrollment, a necessary step in the process of registering for classes.

You can submit your deposit by mailing a check or money order, or you can pay by credit card either through your oneATS account or by calling the Business Office at 859.858.2286.

Student Health Insurance

It is the expectation of Asbury Theological Seminary that all students who are enrolled at half-time status or greater will have, and keep active at all times while a student at the Seminary, adequate health insurance. 
In accordance with the spirit of federal guidelines for certain Visa types, all students enrolled at Asbury Theological Seminary with citizenship other than the United States (referred to hereafter as an “international student”) are required to have health insurance coverage for themselves as well as all non-U.S. citizen dependents residing with them. All international students must provide a physical copy of their insurance plan’s certificate of benefits to the Office of Student Services no later than the add/drop deadline each semester. International students’ insurance must include coverage for medical evacuation and repatriation of remains. Insurance coverage must be in effect on the day of arrival in the United States and remain in effect for the entire time the student remains enrolled at Asbury Theological Seminary. Further details about the specific level of coverage required are available from the International Student Services Manager.

Prepare For Your First Class

Several months before the start of the first class, the Doctor of Ministry office will send you a syllabus for your first class. The syllabus will contain a reading list and other assignments to complete before arriving on the first day of class. You will want to get started a couple months before arriving.
