Student Accounts

Understanding and following the seminary's student account policies can prevent interest charges and other fees from accruing and thus increasing your cost of education.

Payment Methods:

Students can make payments online through the Student Account Center (Visa, MasterCard, ABA Bank Account) and in person at Student Financial Services (Cash, Check, Visa, MasterCard).

Those who have been set up as [Third Party] Authorized Users can login and make payments here.

Payments from Foreign (International) Accounts can be made through PeerTransfer.

Payment Options:

Each quarter Fuller provides the flexibility of three different payment options. Carefully review the explanation for each option below and choose the one that best meets your needs and eligibility. Keep in mind that students must pay off any back-balance on their student account before they will be allowed to register for an upcoming or current quarter.

The following payment options are available if you are registering for courses (including continuation units, dissertation units, and internship units):

Option 1: Full Payment of any balance not covered by Fuller Financial Aid

Pay all tuition and fees that are not scheduled to be covered by financial aid from Fuller by 4pm PST the first Monday of the quarter (DMiss and Dmin see below)*. Additional charges incurred after the deadline are due immediately upon registration for such charges.

A $250 Late Payment Fee can be assessed if your balance is not covered in full by 4pm PST the first Monday of the quarter/term.

The seminary accepts cash, check, electronic check (ACH), and MasterCard® and VISA®credit cards for payment. Arrangements to use Americorps, VA or GI Bill benefits for payment must be made with the Student Financial Services Office prior to registration.

*Dmiss and Dmin students should pay by the starting date of their course.

Option 2: Full Payment by Fuller Financial Aid

It is possible for some students to have payment of all tuition and fees for the quarter to be made by a combination of Fuller scholarships, fellowships, and/or federal student loans. You must have a current and fully processed Fuller financial aid application on file in order to use this option, and you must have accepted enough aid to cover your charges to use this option. If your Fuller financial aid is not sufficient to pay for your tuition and fees in full, you must either pay the difference by the due date or sign-up for a Fuller Tuition Payment Plan (see Option 1 above or Option 3 below).

Option 3: Fuller Tuition Payment Plan

If you cannot pay your portion of your balance by the first Monday of the quarter, or if you would like the convenience of making monthly payments, you may sign up for a Fuller Tuition Payment Plan (FTPP). A student can sign up for the payment plan (after they have registered for courses) through the Student Account Center. The Student Account Center is accessible via the Payment icon on this page.

Signing up for a FTPP allows you to pay that quarter's tuition and fees in monthly installments over a period of one or two months (DMiss and DMin see below*), depending on when you register and sign up for the plan. The nonrefundable quarterly fee for this service is $40, and a student is not responsible for any interest that accrues while they are on the payment plan. Payments are made directly to Fuller via automatic withdrawal, mail, or online. Payments are typically due on the 5th of each month, and a fee of $35 is charged for each late payment.

After registering for classes, you may sign up for the FTPP online through the Student Account Center. When you sign up, your balance due (tuition and fees less any expected Fuller financial aid) for the quarter will be calculated. Your payment plan balance will be updated regularly to reflect registration changes, payments, or any other activity on your student account. A notification email advising you of any changes to your plan will be sent to your @fuller.edu email account.

The Student Financial Services Office can also assist with any questions about your balance or payment plan.

*DMiss and DMin payment plans are typically over three months.

Payment of Non-Course Related Charges

For those who are not registering for courses but still have Health Insurance, Parking, or other charges that may be on the Student Account, payment is due by 4pm PST the first Monday of the quarter. Additional charges incurred after that deadline are due immediately upon receipt of such charges.

Interest can begin accruing on such unpaid balances until they are paid.

The seminary accepts cash, check, electronic check (ACH), and MasterCard® or VISA®credit cards for payment.

Please be aware that the options listed above are the only options available. As such, you should decide as early as possible which option best suits your needs, and sign up or make payments accordingly.

Late Payment Fee

A Late Payment Fee of $250.00 can be charged to any student who registers and does not use one of Fuller's three payment options above by 4pm PST the first Monday of the quarter. This late payment fee applies each quarter that the student registers without complying with one of the payment options.

Above is the summary of Fuller's payment policies. Additional information about Student Account policies is available in the Student Handbook.

The late fee petition is accessible here.
