Cost Breakdown

At Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary, we have structured our fees with the express purpose of encouraging students to maintain diligence and consistency in their studies. Our biannual semester enrollment fee is $375/semester & our tuition is only $75/credit hour.  This means that the faster a student completes his course of studies, the lower his overall cost will be.  Below is a breakdown according to the time taken to complete a program. (Textbooks & Resource Fees not included in breakdown)

Students in a church that partners with CBTS do not pay tuition.  They are still responsible for semester enrollment and resource fees. Learn more about our Church Partnership Program HERE.
