The remaining 67% of deferred tuition must be paid in three equal installments the 3 months following the first day of classes. A fee is assessed for choosing this option. A late fee of $100.00 will be assessed at the end of the three months if there is a remaining balance.

Student will not be allowed to register if there is a balance on their account.

Graduate Student Housing

Married students who live in Seminary-owned properties can expect to pay rent of approximately $480 per month for a single room to $730 per month plus utilities for a 1-bedroom apartment. These rents are below local market rates.


Students officially withdrawing from courses up until the end of the first week of classes are entitled to a complete refund of tuition. Those withdrawing from the second week through the end of the seventh week of the term may receive a 50 percent refund of tuition. No refund will be given to students who withdraw after the end of the seventh week of the term. A student is responsible to pay whatever balance remains after withdrawing.

All fees are non refundable.
