The University of Dallas 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. Neuhoff School of Ministry graduate students that are enrolled
at least half-time (6 credit hours or more), are eligible to apply for federal financial
aid (low-interest student loans).
In order to ensure that our students receive the maximum amount of financial aid available
to them, students must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually.
The FAFSA must be submitted by the following deadlines in order to be considered for
- July 1 - Fall semester
- Nov. 1 - Spring semester
- April 1 - Summer semester
Contact the Graduate Financial Aid Team with questions about the FAFSA, necessary
forms, and loan instructions:

with their lending institutions in order to defer their loans.
The Neuhoff School of Ministry awards annual scholarships 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.
The Neuhoff School of Ministry offers Graduate Assistantships as an opportunity to
develop professional, academic, administrative and pastoral skills associated with
pastoral theology. Graduate Assistants work part-time for the Neuhoff School of Ministry
or for the Office of Campus Ministry at the University of Dallas and receive full tuition remission for up to 19 credit hours annually.
