*Married students living in a seminary apartment are responsible for paying rent from the day they move into the apartment until the day they move out. Therefore, when preparing a budget, students should make provision for rental, grocery, and transportation expenses during the summer months in addition to the totals shown above.

Important note: M.Div. students are required to complete one unit of Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) at an ACPE-accredited hospital.  Students are responsible for the CPE hospital fee, which in the New York region is approximately $850. Qualified students are eligible for reimbursement of the hospital fee (minus financial aid provided by the hospital) and a $500 stipend (summer only).
