Church Sponsorship Agreement

Many students receive assistance from churches that agree to support the student by paying tuition or other fees.

It is each student's responsibility to have the sponsoring church complete the Church Sponsorship Agreement form and return it to the Business Office before the term's payment deadline. Students are still individually responsible for any outstanding balances on their account.

Tuition Deferment Application

The Seminary offers the option of making tuition payments over the length of a semester. In order to qualify, a student must be registered for at least five credit hours at one of the Seminary's five physical campus and be in good financial standing. Qualifying students may defer semester tuition through four monthly installments. The first installment is due at registration. Institutional fees may not be deferred and must be paid at the time of registration, including the $50 Deferred Payment Fee. Applications may be obtained from the Business Office at the Los Angeles Campus-Ontario or your regional campus and must be submitted two weeks prior to the beginning of classes. Deferred tuition payments are not available for summer term, J-term, or online courses.
