Yes. CTS is a distance learning seminary and as such, you may study from the comfort of your own home. You will not be treated any differently just because you do not live in the United States.

Will the costs of my education be more expensive since I live outside of the United States?
It is possible. This would pertain primarily to materials that would need to be shipped to you. If this is the case, then CTS would charge you for the extra costs once they were determined. This would usually be after you have received the materials. This would apply to the NCCA counseling materials and the ITS CD’s for the Church History and MDiv programs. CTS materials would normally come via email attachment in PDF format, there would be no extra costs associated.

Can I receive a scholarship or financial aid to go to CTS?
CTS does not offer scholarhips nor financial aid to any students. In order to keep our costs low, we must keep our profit margins low as well. This is in an effort to keep overall tuition costs as low as possible for all students.
