The basic cost for the school term may be paid by the semester. You can choose to pay for the full semester’s basic charges up front and receive a 2% discount or take advantage of the payment plan.

A payment plan of four payments each semester is available to students taking courses on campus or online who register by the start of the fall, spring, or summer term (see specific eligibility requirements below). Online students who register for an 8-week session after the full term begins will owe half the cost of tuition and fees at registration, and the balance will be divided over the remaining installment dates for that term. Payments may be charged automatically to a credit card for students who apply for this service. Please note that we are unable to accept postdated checks or to hold checks. The installment payments are due:

Students with accounts more than 11 days in arrears may not be allowed to attend class or access their online class and will have their grades withheld until their accounts are made current.

Payment Plan Eligibility Requirements

On Campus

The payment plan is available to students who are U.S. or Canadian citizens or who are U.S. permanent resident card holders. Students who plan to enroll for fewer than 12 credits in a semester should contact the Business Office for specific financial details concerning their account.

Tuition, room and board, and fees for the summer program are due at registration. Students are expected to register for all their summer courses at the same time. The student will be charged a Drop/Add/Change of Course Fee for changes made after the initial summer registration. The only exception is full-time Christian workers’ summer payment plan (see below).

The summer payment plan is available to seminary and graduate students who work full time in a Christian ministry, who are not planning to attend the Seminary or College year round, and who register for nine or more credits during the summer semester (this does not include May or August one-week modules). All fees and one half the cost of tuition and room and board are to be paid at registration. The balance of the tuition and room and board is to be paid in four equal payments on the dates listed above.

Online Learning

The payment plan for online courses is available to all seminary and graduate students, including international students.
