Payment Policies

  1. All accounts must be paid in full 30 days after invoicing from the Finance Office. Invoicing is done the second week of each semester, after the add/drop date. If alternate financial arrangements are needed they must be made with the Vice President for Finance at the time of registration. Payment may be made by check, cash, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover. All checks should be made payable to Oblate School of Theology. Payments made by mail should be sent to the attention of the Business Office. Returned checks are subject to a $25.00 processing fee.
  2. Auditor’s tuition and fees are payable in full at the time of registration or no later than the first scheduled class meeting.
  3. Students will not be considered registered for courses unless financial arrangements have been made. Failure to comply with 1 and 2 above could result in being dropped from class(es). Two alternative methods of meeting financial obligations are available to the student. However, pre-arrangements must be made with the Vice President for Finance prior to invoicing.
    • a. During the Fall and Spring semester, tuition and fees can be divided into 3 equal payments over the course of each semester. The total amount must be paid in full prior to the end of the respective semester.
      b. During the summer session, 50% is due upon registration with the balance due within 15 days.
  4. Eligible veterans should contact the Veteran’s Coordinator in the Registrar’s Office for information and assistance in completing necessary paperwork. Veterans and active duty personnel are subject to the same payment conditions as other students.
  5. Students who fail to adhere to the OST policy for payment may be institutionally withdrawn from class(es) and will not be permitted to register for another semester or session until the account has been cleared. Report cards, transcripts, and diplomas are not issued to students who have not met all financial obligations to OST.
  6. Students must clear all financial obligations each semester. Students cannot register for a new semester until payment is made and balances cleared. All outstanding balances are subject to a one and one-half percent (1.5%) finance charge on all unpaid balances.
