Financial Information

The Seminary is a Christian service-oriented entity; in an effort to meet even the needs of those that cannot afford to attend Seminary, we do not charge fees that cover the complete cost of operations.  Additional funding is provided through gifts from friends and partners of the Seminary.

A non-refundable application fee of US $20.00 must be paid to the Business Office in order to obtain the required admission forms from the LBTS Registrar’s Office.

Students who fail to liquidate arrears by the end of each semester will not receive grades until the arrears are paid.

Under no circumstances will a student be allowed to participate in commencement exercises until all arrears are paid.
