Financial aid

TTS is a non-profit institution, and endeavors to keep students’ expenses to a minimum. All charge schedules and refund policies are in compliance with the guidelines of the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education of the State of California.

If a student obtains a loan to pay for an educational program, the student will have to repay the full amount of the loan plus interest, less the amount of any refund, and that, if the student receives Federal Student Financial Aid Funds, the student is entitled to a refund of the money not paid from Federal Aid Funds.

TTS does not participate in any federal and state financial aid programs. However, a private Truth Theological Seminary Scholarship Fund is available to those who are eligible to apply.
