Financial Aid & Scholarships
Need-Based Financial Aid
The School of Theology administers its own need-based financial aid for lay students.
To be eligible, a student must be admitted and enrolled in a degree or certificate program. Financial Aid Applications for the School of Theology are accepted at designated times throughout the academic year. Students may not receive institutional scholarship awards that exceed the cost of tuition.
The institution is Title IV-eligible, but has elected not to participate in Title IV programs. Eligibility is maintained for the purposes of processing in-school deferment requests for eligible students (i.e., those in at least a half-time rate of pursuit).
Grants, Scholarships, and Other Sources of Aid
We encourage students to be proactive in locating outside sources of financial aid. You may wish to discuss tuition needs with your pastor, as some parishes assist active parishioners with tuition and/or book fees. Catechists may contact the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Office for Evangelization and Discipleship (513-421-3131) for information about the Gabrielle Bouscaren Fund, which offers support for the continuing education of catechists. Some courses may be reimbursed by your place of employment. Members of fraternal, social or civic organizations should explore the possibility of scholarships via their organization.
