Tuition and Funding

Education requires a commitment of time and money. Your enrolment advisor can help you figure out how to fit your studies within the time and financial resources God has given you. Our programs and courses are offered in a variety of delivery options, including daytime, evening, online and one-week intensive formats. And we have scholarships and bursaries to help with your tuition. Talk to your enrolment advisor today.

ACTS Scholarships and Bursaries

ACTS Seminaries offers a variety of scholarships, bursaries, and awards to provide financial assistance for students registered in five credits or more in both the fall and spring terms. There are merit-based scholarships, need-based bursaries and endowment awards. To learn more about the financial aid options available to you, talk to your enrolment advisor.

Financial Aid Application

To apply for financial aid, you can fill out a Financial Aid Application

Note: you must be admitted to ACTS Seminaries prior to filling out the financial aid application. The application deadline for the first round of financial aid distribution is April 30. All applications are due no later than July 31. Financial aid applications are for the full academic year. There is no financial aid available in summer. Students beginning studies in the spring (January) term need to contact their graduate enrolment advisor for a financial aid application form.

Other Scholarships and Bursaries

Each seminary within ACTS offers financial assistance to its students. You can contact your seminary for more information.

External Scholarships and Bursaries

Many external agencies offer scholarships and bursaries for seminary students. See the list.

Government Student Loans

If you have done everything you can to come up with the funds you need to pay for school and still require additional funding, then we would encourage you to consider applying for a student loan. Government student loans are a good option as they remain interest-free while you are a student and you do not need to make any payments until you have finished school. It is recommended to apply for government student loans by June 1.

Student loan eligibility is determined in part by the province of residence. If you reside outside of BC, you can search student aid sites for each province. Learn more on the BC student aid site:


We make every effort to keep tuition fees affordable. Each student’s tuition is subsidized by the generous support of denominational constituencies across Canada.
