Ministerial Student Loan/Grant Program 

50 percent of tuition per year Students preparing for ordained ministry in the United Methodist Church may qualify for a loan of half-tuition provided they meet certain criteria, including certification as a candidate for ministry in the United Methodist Church, and receive the approval of the financial aid committee. Once the student is ordained in the United Methodist Church and enters the full-time ministry, the loan will become a grant. Those students who later decide not to enter the ordained ministry in the United Methodist Church will be expected to repay the loan at six percent interest within five years after graduation.
