  • A Returned Check Fee of $50 will be charged each time the divinity school has to redeposit a check.
  • A Transcript Fee of $5 will be charged for each transcript after the first.

Payment – Tuition and fees are due at registration on the first day of the semester. If a payment plan has been approved by the Business Manager the student is expected to pay all fees, book costs and 1/3 of his or her total tuition at registration, 1/2 of his or her remaining tuition by first day of the second month of the semester session and the remaining balance by the first day of the third month of the semester session.

Account balances must be paid before the final week of the semester. Unpaid balances will prevent: 1) the student from taking final exams, 2) the release of grades and transcripts and 3) the student from enrolling in future courses.

Refunds – Tuition will be refunded to students who withdraw from a class on the following scale:

  • 90% during the first week of the half-semester
  • 75% during the second week of the half-semester
  • 50% during the third week of the half-semester
  • 0% after the third week of the half-semester
As a matter of personal integrity, students who withdraw from a course with a balance due larger than their refund must pay the difference. Until paid, the difference will remain on the student’s account and prevent the future release of grades and transcripts.
