Western Seminary's lean budget results from our efforts to keep tuition affordable in a time when the typical student brings $23,000 of undergraduate loan debt to graduate school and will pay an average of $31,000 to complete a master's degree. Your donation will go toward scholarships for students who normally would not be able to afford the tuition.
