Deep in the Heart

Whether you already live her or have only dreamed of it, you'll find our campus to be a terrific spot to explore this vibrant, eclectic city.

One of the things that always made me hesitant to attend seminary was the cost … other schools talked a lot about how to take out student loans. Austin Seminary talked a lot about scholarships and how to receive financial aid. The 85% financial aid most students receive seemed like a huge help and was enough to sell me on Austin Seminary. The emphasis the Seminary places on financial help for students is unparalleled.
