Greetings from Abilio Cima, Vice President of Finance of the Inter-American Adventist Theological Seminary (IATS). This office is at your service for any questions related to the financial services offered by the IATS. For any doubt, question or request for information you can contact me at [email protected]
The (IATS) has been established as a non-profit organization, with the intention of presenting an academic offer to mainly help pastors, chaplains, teachers and professors to obtain postgraduate theological studies in the tradition of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. However, there is no discrimination based on religious persuasion, race, gender, or physical or mental condition. However, since the Seminary is a denominationally sustained institution, the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Inter-America expects graduates with high biblical, ethical, and moral standards.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church is responsible for financing the operation of IATS and provides scholarships to individuals who have been identified as capable of better serving their communities and the church. That requires them to follow their curriculum while continuing to meet the expectations of the employing organizations that assist them financially.
Given the fact that the program is funded by the Inter-American Division of Seventh-day Adventists, sponsored students do not have to pay for tuition once they are officially accepted into the program. Non-sponsored students will have to pay $ 175.00 USD for credit and $ 50.00 USD per year as an admission fee for master’s programs. In the DMin program they will have to pay $ 350.00 per credit and $ 50.00 USD per year as an admission fee. In the PhD program they will have to pay $ 660.00 per credit and $ 50.00 USD per year as an admission fee. In addition, the affiliated institutions charge a tuition fee that ranges between $ 350.00 USD and $ 500.00 USD to both sponsored and non-sponsored students to cover indirect expenses of the institution.
Finally, those students who will have to stay and the usual meals will run through the arrangements that can be made between the organizations concerned, Union, Field and student.
If for any reason you need to make a payment, such as independent or contract class, graduation fee payment or other, you can do it using any of the following payment methods:
