Tuition Payment

The tuition balance is due by the end of the fourth week of classes by check or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express) at the school office. If a student is unable to pay in full, he or she may pay a portion of the balance in monthly installments with the remaining due by the end of the semester.

Refund Procedure

If a student changes enrollment status in a course, tuition payments will be refunded on a pro-rated basis. A student will receive a refund of:

  • 100 percent if a class is dropped before the end of the Add/Drop period,
  • 75 percent if dropped before the end of the fourth week,
  • 50 percent if dropped before the end of the sixth week,
  • 25 percent if dropped by the end of the eighth week.

A student is responsible for payment of full tuition for a course if the class is dropped after the eighth week of the semester. After the Add/Drop period, there is no refund for audits.

* The Refund Procedure has one exception: All summer or modular classes are subject to specific refund regulations posted for each individual summer semester or modular session.

Scholarships

Various scholarships are available for credit Graduate students. Preference in awarding scholarships will be given to graduate students who are enrolled in programs of the Seminary. Scholarships are awarded once a year. To be considered for a scholarship, applications must be submitted by April 15.

Brotherton Foundation Scholarship

Through a series of grants, the Brotherton Foundation has built an endowment to be used to award a scholarship to a deserving full time Master of Arts in Religion or Master of Divinity student who has completed at least one year of coursework. This scholarship finances a portion of the student’s tuition. To be considered for a scholarship, applications must be submitted by April 15.

Work Study

Students who are accepted to the work study program work three hours a week in either the seminary office or the library, at the equivalent of minimum wage, and what they earn is applied directly to their tuition. These positions are available for anyone taking a course for credit. Work Study is awarded only during the school year and on a semester-by-semester basis. To be considered for work study, contact the dean’s office for further information.
