Expenses

Prior to the beginning of each term all students are required to make satisfactory arrangements with the Financial Services office for payment of seminary charges for the term. Unless other arrangements have been made with the financial services office, all general fees including tuition, dormitory and the lunch meal plan, are due on the first day of classes for each term. Housing charges (for apartments) are due the first of each month but are billed the beginning of each semester. All other obligations to the seminary, the bookstore and the library, must be paid within 30 days of the date incurred.

Federal loan proceeds are first applied to Institutional charges (tuition, miscellaneous fees, health insurance, dormitory and apartment rent and meal plan) for the term, with any remaining balance refundable to students, with no further action required from the student. (See Student Handbook p.36)

Financial Aid

See the Financial Aid webpage for additiona informartion.

Scholarships, Grants, Loans Approved anticipated financial aid credit (Federal, State, Seminary) appears on the bill and reduces the amount due now. Any amount not covered by approved financial aid must be paid by the due date of the bill. If a zero or credit (CR) balance shows, return your statement by the due date to complete your registration and avoid a late fee. Financial aid that does not appear on the bill was not approved at the time it was printed. Verify the status of your aid with the Financial Aid Office. If it is approved, subtract that amount from the balance due on your bill and indicate what type of aid you are taking credit for. If it is not approved, the Billing Office cannot extend credit for it.
