Tuition & Fees
Tuition and Fees Summer 2015 – Spring 2016
Per-unit tuition below represents the tuition charged for students enrolling in class in a given category. That is, tuition is based on the level and school and department of the class, not the program of the student. For example, if you enroll in a 500-level School of Theology class, you pay the rate for 500-level classes in that school, no matter what program you are in. If you enroll in a 500-level School of Psychology class, you pay that rate, no matter what your program is.

An applicant who provides written notice of cancellation within three days (excluding Saturday, Sunday and federal and state holidays) of signing an enrollment agreement is entitled to a refund of all monies paid. The full refund will be provided by the seminary within 30 days of receiving the notice of cancellation.
Tuition Payment Policy
Fuller Seminary requires either full payment or completion of specific provisions for payment within seven calendar days of registration. These provisions include the remaining balance being covered by verified Fuller financial aid, a Fuller Tuition Payment Plan with two or three payments (depending on your program), or a combination of both.
The seminary accepts cash, check, debit (ATM) cards, electronic check (ACH), and MasterCard and Visa credit cards for payment. Arrangements to use VA or GI Bill benefits for payment must be made with the Student Financial Services Office prior to registration.
Option 1: Full Payment (no Fuller Financial Aid Expected). Pay any prior balance before registering. Pay all new tuition and fees by 4:00pm PST the first Monday of the quarter (or DMiss term or DMin class). Additional charges incurred after this deadline are due immediately.
If you are not registering for classes, but you have Fuller student health insurance and/or an unpaid balance, the seminary requires full payment of health insurance and any other charges (such as continuation fees, etc.), as well as any previous balance, by the first Friday of the quarter.
Option 2: Full Payment by Fuller Financial Aid. If payment of all tuition and fees for the term is to be made by Fuller grants, scholarships, and/or federal student loans, you must pay any previous balance due prior to registering. You must have a current and fully processed Fuller financial aid application on file in order to use this option. If your Fuller financial aid is not sufficient to pay your tuition and fees in full, you must either pay the difference or enroll in the Fuller Tuition Payment Plan by 4:00 pm Pacific time of the first day of the quarter (or DMiss term or DMin class). A $250 Late Payment Fee will be assessed if your balance is not paid in full or you are not enrolled in a tuition payment plan by this deadline.
Option 3: Tuition Payment Plan. If you cannot pay in full at registration and would like the convenience of making monthly payments, you may sign up for a Fuller Tuition Payment Plan (FTPP). Plans are administered directly by the Student Financial Services Offices. If you choose this option, you must pay any previous balance in order to register. A $250 Late Payment Fee will be assessed if your balance is not paid in full or you are not enrolled in a tuition payment plan by 4:00pm PST the first Monday of the quarter (or DMiss term or DMin class).
Payment Plan Details. Signing up for a FTPP allows you to pay that quarter’s tuition and fees in monthly installments over a period of one or two months, depending on when you register and sign up for the plan. The nonrefundable quarterly fee for this service is $40, and no interest is charged. Payments are made directly to Fuller via automatic withdrawal, mail, or online. Payments are due on the 5th of each month and a fee of $35 is charged for each late payment.
Overdue Accounts Policy
Students whose tuition, housing or bookstore accounts are not current will not be able to register for the next quarter, receive diplomas, or have transcripts issued. The seminary, in accordance with its goals of maintaining only current student accounts and encouraging faithful financial stewardship among students, may turn any student account that is delinquent 45 or more days over to professional collection agencies.
