Financial Aid

The Unification Theological Seminary is committed to helping eligible students meet their financial needs. Through scholarships and grants, the Seminary seeks to alleviate the financial burden of both domestic and international students.

However, funding for these programs is limited, and they provide only partial coverage of the expenses incurred at UTS. Students are therefore encouraged to seek other sources of funding first. Some local and national churches have set up gener­ous scholarship programs that com­pletely fund students' seminary education.

Deadlines for complet­ed financial aid applications are:

Fall Term: August 5, 2011
Spring Term: January 6, 2012


Forms and infor­mation are available through the Admissions Office.

Ecumenical Scholarships: The Family Federation for World Peace and Unification offers partial tuition scholar­ships to qualified American appli­cants from diverse Christian denominations. Applica­tions are available through the Admissions Office.

Family Federation USA Scholarship: The Family Federation of the United States provides a limited number of scholar­ships to its membership. Students must have the approval of the Family Federation leadership, with whom they make an agreement to serve in their communities after graduation.

IIFWP Scholarship: The IIFWP scholarship is awarded to a candidate selected by the IIFWP who has distinguished him or herself in global mission work and/or peacemaking activities.

Partial Tuition Scholarships: Partial Tuition Scholarships are awarded on an annual basis to qualified applicants. Students must apply each year for the renewal of scholarships.

Federal Student Financial Aid Program (Title IV): Under the Title IV Program, UTS students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents are eligible to apply for Federal Stafford Loans (subsidized and unsubsi­dized). To qualify for these loans, the student must have documented financial needs as evidenced by completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at More infor­mation is available through the Admissions Office.
