Tuition and Other Expenses

Charges for tuition, fees, and room & board are due and payable at the beginning of each semester. Full-time students may make arrangements with the Associate Chancellor for Finance to pay these fees in installments, subject to a finance charge, the first of which installment is due at the beginning of the semester. All accounts must be paid in full for the previous term before the student is permitted to register for a new semester. If payment or other satisfactory arrangements have not been made by the end of the second week of the semester, the student will not be permitted to attend classes until payment or other arrangements have been made. No academic credit will be given in any semester for which fees have not been paid in full. All seminary, library, and bookstore accounts must be paid in full, or satisfactory arrangements for payment must be made, before any degree, transcript, or degree verification will be issued.

Tuition and fees are set annually by the Board of Trustees and are subject to change at the Board’s discretion. Tuition, fees, and estimates of other expenses for the following academic year are posted online each year in early February.
