Payment arrangements must be made with the business manager at the time of registration. If Pastoral Mentorship students are on a payment plan, one half of their tuition must be paid by January 25 with the balance paid by May 25. Degrees will be granted and transcripts will be issued only for those students whose accounts are current.

the second week 80%
the fourth week 60%

the eighth week 20%

By law, V.A. beneficiaries are not subject to the above refund schedule but shall receive a pro-rated refund based on the unfinished amount of their course(s).
