With your gifts, we prepare men and women to serve as Christian leaders throughout society.


Affordable Tuition

According to the U.S. Department of Education’s College Affordability and Transparency List, Criswell’s tuition cost is among the lowest 10% of private not-for-profit, four year colleges. Currently, annual student tuition and fees are $8,230. The actual cost to educate each student is $23,500. Gifts to Criswell College fill the gap and keep Criswell education affordable for our students.



Criswell College is and plans always to be about recruiting only the kind of students who are radically committed to following Jesus and giving their entire lives to God in service – whether in traditional paid ministry, in some other career, or a combination of both. The mission of Criswell College is not simply to prepare graduates for leadership positions, but rather to develop leaders who make a difference in the world for Christ and the gospel.


Student-Faculty Ratio

The student-faculty ratio is 12 to 1, allowing the students to develop relationships with faculty members and engage in one-on-one mentoring relationships outside of the classroom.


Distinguished Faculty

Criswell College has 20 faculty who support the school’s vision of engaging minds and transforming culture. The faculty take their responsibilities to the students very seriously, viewing their role as a discipleship opportunity. The faculty not only teach and disciple students, but also research, publish, present, and practice in their various disciplines. 95% of the faculty members hold a Ph.D. or other terminal degree in their field.

Criswell College’s financial contributors include friends, alums, parents, and churches who believe in the mission and who partner with Criswell to graduate students who will influence the culture for Christ!
