Payment Schedule

A non-refundable advance payment of $200.00 is due upon acceptance into a program at all campuses.

This payment will be applied toward the tuition fee for the first semester.

All tuition and fees for a semester are due the first day of class. Those who are depending on financial support from churches, organizations, individuals, etc. should be prepared to meet financial obligations when due, whether or not such funds have been received.

RTS assesses tuition, fees, and scholarships one week before courses begin. Students are given a two week “window” (one week before courses begin and one week after courses begin) in order to make payments via Self Service, in person at the campus business office, or establish a payment plan with the campus business manager. If the student does not make the payment or fill out a payment plan agreement form within this two week window, then the student’s courses will be dropped and charged applicable drop fees. If the student subsequently wants to add the courses and make a payment, he/she would then be assessed an add fee for each course. A late payment fee of 1% per month (12% annual) will be charged to students on the total outstanding balance at the end of each month regardless if a payment plan is in place.

Tuition Refund Policy and Drop/Add Fee

Students who drop a course before the drop deadline will receive a full refund of tuition, less drop/add fees.  Those who withdraw after the deadline will not receive any refund of tuition.  Exceptions may be granted in extreme circumstances only through a written appeal to the business office or Academic Dean.

A charge of $30.00 will be assessed for dropping a course, adding a course, or replacing one course with another unless the change originates with a faculty member or administrative official.

Auditors/Tuition for Spouses of Students

Regularly enrolled full-time students (twelve hours or more), their spouses, and members of the seminary staff may audit classes without charge provided there is room in the class and they have registered with the Registrar. Spouses of full-time students also qualify for special for-credit tuition benefits. Others, provided there is room in the class, may audit courses after paying the required auditing fee.
