Tuition

Costs

Tuition is $485 per unit with a total program cost of $16,490 (textbooks and other fees below not included). Students will pay their tuition per class, not all at once. In general, the costs that should be considered for the MABC program at TMU are as follows:

  • On-Campus, Online Synchronous (i.e. live class lectures), and Online Asynchronous (i.e. pre-recorded lectures): $485 per credit hour x 34 credit hour program = $16,490 total tuition (students pay per class per semester)

  • ~$1,500 for books and materials (including required Logos Bible software program & Journal of Biblical Counseling subscription & archive)

  • $50 one-time application fee

  • $15 library fee/semester and $20 parking permit/semester (when using a car on-campus; summer-only students should purchase the Short Term Permit, not the Annual permit)

  • $495/week for meals and housing for traveling distance students in the summer semesters

  • Unknown travel or relocation expenses you may incur for the program

  • A $250 deposit (i.e. not an extra fee, but initial payment of first class) is required upon admission before your new student account can be finalized. See the instructions under the Upon Acceptance heading HERE.


Scholarships

Scholarships for the Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling (MABC) program are provided through the Graduate Studies department directly, not through our Financial Aid office. Scholarships are awarded semester by semester, so anyone who wants a scholarship must apply each semester. Because scholarship funds are provided directly from our department, they are limited. In this way, scholarship applications are considered on the basis of a combination of academic performance, financial need, and ministry potential.

You can apply for the scholarship HERE. Please be advised that you must be an active MABC student to apply for the scholarship.

After you have completed your scholarship, questions regarding your scholarship status for the current semester should be directed to our program director, Jeff Miller (jlmiller@masters.edu; 661-362-2644).

Financial Aid

While scholarships are exclusively provided through the Office of Graduate Studies, financial aid and government loans can be sought through the Office of Financial Aid at The Master’s University (TMU). If you would like to pursue government aid or loans, you may correspond with our financial aid representative—Ryan Wethern (661-362-2292; rwethern@masters.edu) – in the Financial Aid Department at TMU. He will help you pursue the best course of action for your financial situation.
