M.Div and M.A. Fees
Let us help you steward your financial resources.
With the rise of student loan debt, we know that cost is one of your top concerns. Rather than cutting corners to lower tuition, we’ve partnered with churches and believers around the world to offer you a stellar education at an affordable rate. Why? We believe no one should have to go deep into debt in order to study God’s word.

When is my first payment due?
A non-refundable advance payment of $200.00 is due upon acceptance into a program at all campuses. This payment will be applied toward the tuition fee for the first semester.
All tuition and fees for a semester are due the first day of the term. However, a payment plan for the fall and spring terms is available through the campus business manager.
What if I haven't received anticipated support from partners?
If you are expecting financial support from churches, organizations, individuals, etc., you should be prepared to meet financial obligations when due, whether or not your funds have been received.
Are there any late fees?
A late payment fee of 1% per month (12% annual) will be charged to students whose accounts are past due. Students will not be permitted to register for a new semester, graduate, or receive transcripts unless all financial obligations to the Seminary have been settled, including library debts.
Add / Drop Dates
Is there a deadline for adding courses?
Students are permitted to add courses for a period of two weeks following the first day of the semester. This add date is specified in the academic calendar of the respective campus. A fee will be charged for each course added after the first day of the semester.
What is the deadline for dropping courses?
Students are permitted to drop courses for a period of five weeks following the first day of the semester. Courses may be dropped without academic penalty if done so by the drop date listed in the academic calendar of the respective campus. No courses may be added or dropped after the deadlines. For refunds related to courses dropped, see the refund policy.
Tuition Refund Policy
Can I receive a refund?
Students who drop a course or terminate enrollment before the drop deadline (five weeks following the first day of the semester) will receive within 30 days a full refund of tuition and student activity fees (less the non-refundable tuition deposit for new students).
What if I withdraw from the seminary or course after the deadline?
Those who withdraw from the seminary or from a course after the deadline will receive no refund of tuition or student activity fees. Exceptions may be granted in extreme circumstances only through a written appeal to the Business Office or the Academic Dean.
Auditors/Tuition for Spouses of Students
Can my spouse take classes for free?
Regularly enrolled full-time students (twelve hours or more), their spouses, and members of the seminary staff may audit classes without charge provided there is room in the class and they have registered with the Registrar. Spouses of full-time students also qualify for special for-credit tuition benefits. Others, provided there is room in the class, may audit courses after paying the required auditing fee.
