The tuition and fee schedule that follows is effective beginning with the fall 2013 semester. Tuition, fees, and other expenses are subject to change without notice and are due by the dates that are announced each semester.

Those eligible to audit a course in which a transcript record is kept pay, per credit hour, approximately one-third of the lowest tuition rate. Those eligible to audit without a transcript record may audit a course for a $35 fee. Please contact the the Registrar’s Office to request a Non-transcripted Audit Form.
There is a $5.00 charge for each official transcript that is requested ($15 for a rush request). Transcript requests must be made in writing to the Registrar's Office and include the student's signature. A transcript request form may be downloaded from the Denver Seminary website at http://www.denverseminary.edu/registrar-forms.

Students are usually able to secure employment in the Denver area which underwrites many of their living expenses. The Seminary is able to give some assistance in employment placement (see the "Career Counseling" section of the academic catalog for more information).
In some cases, students may receive some financial remuneration for work in local churches as Christian education leaders or youth workers. Occasionally pastorates are available for students.
