The University of Dallas has recently lowered the cost of graduate education by over
20% as part of a renewed commitment to make “theological education for transformative
service” widely available. Students taking a minimum of 6 credits are also eligible
for federal financial aid. One may apply for low-interest student loans through the Office of Financial Aid at the University of Dallas. For more information, necessary forms, and instructions
about loans, please contact the Financial Aid Office directly at (972) 721-5266. Students
who currently have outstanding loans must make special arrangements with their lending
institutions in order to defer their loans.
Scholarships are financial awards given to students by the university based on financial
need and in recognition of exceptional academic promise, demonstrated by a record
of outstanding achievement in previous academic work and/or ministerial accomplishment.
Students may request a review of one’s scholarship status, as need dictates.
New scholarships are available to Executive Youth Ministry Cohort applicants. Prospective students should first apply to the Graduate Program, then
submit the Graduate Program Scholarship Application.
Students often find additional financial support through partial grants and scholarships
from their home parishes and local Catholic groups like the Knights of Columbus, Catholic
Daughters, etc. Students are encouraged to research and pursue the following additional
sources of support, as well as others:
- Msgr. Larry J. Droll Scholarship for Catholic Laity: Visit their website for more information and to read about Neuhoff School of Ministry 2012 recipient

"theology" opions in the "select a subject" menu.
