STUDENT ACCOUNT SERVICES
A student account, assigned by student identification number, is established for each student at the initial registration. All billings for tuition, housing, and other campus charges and fees are charged to this account. Students will not receive paper statements. Statements of account are available for the student’s information on the seminary website at all times. It is the responsibility of the student to pay all charges on a timely basis. NOTE: A $50 late fee will be charged for balances not paid by the due date. Accounts must be paid before registering. Failure to meet this requirement will also mean loss of apartments in seminary housing.
For the sake of convenience, students may make on-line payments to their account, 24 hours per day.

PAYMENT BY OR SCHOLARSHIPS FROM OUTSIDE ENTITIES:
If an outside entity wishes to pay for a student’s tuition or rent, it is the responsibility of the student to submit registration forms and charges or contracts or grades (if applicable) to that outside entity and to communicate the appropriate due dates. If charges are not paid by the outside entity before the due date(s), the student is responsible for the late payment fees.
