What can I do with a DMIN degree?

The DMIN degree equips persons across a wide range of Christian vocational ministry to engage ministry with theological depth and practical ministry skill. DMIN students include pastors, associate pastors, Christian educators, ministers of worship, missionaries, workers in denominational or parachurch organizations, and evangelists. You are quite likely already an excellent candidate for DMIN studies if you have earned an MDiv degree, or any theological Master’s degree from a seminary or university, and have experience in vocational Christian ministry!

Why should I consider B. H. Carroll?

The world-wide pandemic did not force B. H. Carroll into new ways of delivering theological education. From our foundation, we’ve been on the cutting edge, taking seminary classes all over the world with online platforms and local learning center options. However, the real answer to this question is that we want you to engage in spiritual discernment. If God is calling you here, we hope you will follow His will. We are praying that God will send such students to us.

When do I need to apply?

All new D.Min. students will join a Fall Cohort and need to complete the application process by April 1. Transferring D.Min. students may be able to join a Cohort in the Spring semester, and your application would be due by September 1.

How much will a DMIN degree cost?

Program costs include:

  • One-time, non-refundable application fee: $100
  • One-time Logos Program subscription fee: $200 (due first semester)
  • Tuition cost: $1750/semester ($3500 per year)
  • Technology fee: $170 per semester
  • Continuing Enrollment Fee: $875 per semester (replaces the per semester tuition cost once the DMIN Prospectus has been approved)
  • Graduation fee: $200 (due at the end of the program)

Is financial aid available?

Thanks to the gifts of our generous donors, B. H. Carroll already scholarships each student with a significant discount of his or her tuition. If you have compared, you know our program is one of the most affordable D.Min. degrees available anywhere, even after others have applied their scholarships. Federal student aid is not available for the D.Min. degree program.

How long will it take me to complete the program?

The D.Min. program is designed for a student to complete seminar studies in two years. A third year is devoted to the completion of the D.Min. project requirements. So, three years is the designed time for the D.Min. degree. Of course, life sometimes gets in the way, and students can have up to six years to complete the degree.

I have more questions. May I visit with someone about the DMIN Degree?

Absolutely. We are here to help in any way possible. Please contact us here: DMin Program
