An advance tuition payment of $250 is required of all approved applicants. This payment must be made no later than August 1 for those beginning in the fall semester or by December 1 for those beginning in the spring semester. If an approved applicant has paid the tuition deposit and decides not to enroll, $150 will be refunded if he notifies the seminary by August 15 or December 10. Rarely will refunds be made if notification of withdrawal is received after these dates.
