All charges are due and payable at the beginning of each respective semester or term during the first week of classes.  A student’s registration is fully finalized upon payment of tuition.  Students who are not able to pay tuition and fees will be allowed to attend classes only if satisfactory arrangements for payment have been made with the Finance Office.

A $50 late fee will be charged in the event that a student fails to make payment at the time designated for that purpose. (See section 8.1.c)

Students who pay their tuition and fees in installments will be required to sign a promissory note and to abide by the terms and conditions of the note or be subject to the penalties contained therein. Any student with a payment to the Seminary outstanding 15 days after the date the payment is due will be withdrawn from his or her program.  No student who has unpaid financial obligations to the Seminary (including the library) shall be permitted to register for a subsequent semester, to receive grade reports, to have transcripts sent, or to receive a diploma.
 
The following forms of payment are acceptable:

  • Cash, check or money order
  • Online payment through a student’s Self-Service account by credit card or direct debit (EFT)
  • Credit card (MasterCard or Visa)
  • Bank wire (please contact the Finance Office for wire instructions)
  • Loan (Stafford, Graduate PLUS or alternative) – if utilizing this option to pay tuition, please note that the loan must be approved before the first day of the semester or term. Stafford and Graduate PLUS loans are approved in the form of a letter from the Financial Aid Office; for further information, please see  section 8.3.12 on Government Loans.

Rates and fees are subject to change each academic year.
