- Students seeking financial aid must complete and sign the Financial Aid application to be considered for financial assistance.
- Because the primary responsibility of the Seminary is to provide an appropriate educational and formation experience for those students preparing for ministry, financial assistance is generally limited to those students seeking degrees. When possible, financial aid may be made available to non-degree seeking students.
- Financial assistance is available for no more than the number of hours in the degree program. Tuition for courses repeated or taken over the required number of hours is the responsibility of the student. Courses from which a student withdraws are counted toward the number of hours of financial aid. Therefore, withdrawal from a course results in the student having to pay tuition for the hours that will eventually be taken to complete the requirements.
- Financial assistance is not available to students on probation.
- Students are expected to meet tuition obligations when they are due. Communication with the Seminary office is essential if there is a problem in paying bills.
- Students will not be allowed to begin their next term of study, have transcripts or other information released, or graduate when money is owed to the Seminary and no payment plan is in place.
