Sewanee lowers tuition for seminarians

Sewanee lowers tuition for seminarians

Sewanee, one of the historic seminaries of the Episcopal Church has announced that it is acting to bring its costs to students more in line with the costs of other Episcopal seminaries and will be dropping its tuition by nearly $4,000 (more than 20%).

“New students paying the reduced tuition of $14,980 will also be eligible for need-based financial aid, not only to cover tuition, but also for living expenses while at Sewanee, once all sources of a student’s income and expenses are identified.

[…]“Reducing our advertised tuition and eliminating the across the board discount allows us to focus financial aid assistance based on our students’ demonstrated need,” explained the Very Rev. William S. Stafford, dean of The School of Theology. “Combined with our generous scholarships, the cost of attendance here for most students is far lower than in many other schools; very few students need to borrow. The Anglican tradition of serious, formative education for priests is in fact affordable here at Sewanee.””

The article by ENS reports that students will still be eligible for additional financial aid as they were before the tuition cut.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
