Business Office

We are committed to meet the needs of students, faculty and staff of the Seminary at all of its campuses. We encourage the development of sound financial practices by our students and are committed to upholding the financial policies set forth by the leadership and Board of Trustees of Gateway Seminary.


We are a private, non-profit Southern Baptist institution that relies upon the generosity of churches, alumni, friends and the Southern Baptist Convention. We gratefully acknowledge their partnership in this ministry that enables the Seminary to keep the cost to our students at an affordable level.

Payment for tuition and fees is due each semester in full on or before the final day of registration. Approved documentation for any situation that would lead to a balance due after the final day of registration must be on file in the Business Office.

Deadlines for payment can be found in the Academic Catalog.

Students are solely responsible for their own account. Third party payments, church sponsorship or financial aid awards do not relieve students from this responsibility. Students who have not paid for or made arrangements for payment by the deadline will be administratively dropped and will not be able to attend classes.

Policies and Procedures

Tuition Payments

Student accounts with an outstanding past due balance will be placed on Business Office hold and the student will not be able to pre-register until the obligation is paid in full. Students who have not finalized their registration with full payment or approved deferment by the last day to register will have all registered courses dropped. This is referred to as an administrative drop.


A credit balance on a student’s account, in most cases, indicates that the student is entitled to a refund. A student may request a refund on a check request form or in writing via email. The Business Office will review the account for any restrictions by a third party or scholarship and will apply the refund to the credit card used for payment or with a check from the Seminary. The Seminary does encourage students to carry over credit balances to the next semester.


As a last resort, a delinquent student account may be subject to collection procedures. Every effort will be made by the Business Office to contact the student and provide opportunity to clear the obligation. If a student’s account is turned over to a collection agency, the student must then make payments to that agency.
