Tuition and Funding

Education requires 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, awards and assistantships to provide financial assistance for students registered in full-time studies.

  • Merit-based scholarships are offered to students who demonstrate outstanding academic ability.
  • Need-based bursaries are available to students who demonstrate financial need.
  • Endowment awards are provided by donors and the criteria is unique to each award.
  • Teaching Assistantships are available to support full-time graduate students. This may involve a part-time role in teaching or other academic related activities.

Other Scholarships and Bursaries

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

External Scholarships and Bursaries

Many external agencies offer scholarship and bursaries for seminary students. It is important to note that external agencies have defined policies regarding their awards and may restrict the amount of funding students can receive from other awards. These are just a few of the options out there.

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 full-time student and you do not need to make any payments until you have finished school. The recommended date to apply for government student loans is June 1.


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