Financial Registration

During registration for classes, all students are required to complete all of the registration checklist steps on the student portal including the last two: “AGTS Bill and Payment Options” and “AGTS Complete Financial Registration.” Failure to complete financial registration will result in cancellation of the student’s class schedule. The following payment options are available.

Payment of Bills

Full Cash Payment—must be made on or prior to the first day of the semester (checks and credit cards accepted: Discover, MasterCard and Visa). Accounts not paid in full on or before the first day of the semester will be assessed a monthly late fee of $25.

Students who pay their account balances in full on or before the first day of the semester will receive a 1% discount on net tuition. Net tuition is the full tuition charge less tuition discounts and institutional scholarships. This discount applies only to master’s level resident students.

Deferred Payment—provides a plan for students who are unable to pay the semester charges in full at registration. A $50 deferred payment fee is added to the student account and the balance is divided into 3 equal monthly installments due on specified dates. Payments made after the specified dates will be subject to a $25/month late fee.

Tuition Discounts—AGTS provides several tuition discounts. Please see Tuition Discounts for Resident and Continuing Education Students.

Scholarships—Several scholarships and grants are available to new and returning students. See Scholarships for New And/Or Returning Resident Students.

All tuition and fees are due and payable in full by the first day of the semester unless special arrangements have been made in advance with the business office or students plan to use the deferred payment plan. Students whose accounts are not current will not be allowed to register for subsequent classes and will be denied requests for transcripts and diplomas.

Refund Policy
(Applies to students not receiving Federal Financial Aid)

Any student dropping a course(s) or withdrawing totally after registration, without completing the necessary forms and receiving the consent of the registrar, will not receive a refund. Failure to attend classes does not guarantee a refund.

Students may change or drop courses anytime during the first two academic weeks of each semester (see calendar for summer sessions). If a course is dropped and a substitute course taken, there is no charge other than the $6 change of course fee. When a course is dropped (or withdrawn from) and no substitute taken, the following refund policy will apply for the fall and spring semesters. Contact the Business Office regarding the brief refund period for accelerated summer and module sessions.

Delinquent Account

AGTS begins in-house collection procedures on the outstanding account balances of students who have not fulfilled the conditions of their Promissory Notes or who have not made payment for at least 30 days. This procedure involves a series of letters and/or telephone calls from the AGTS Business Office.

If at the end of 120 days the account has not been paid in full or satisfactory arrangements have not been made to pay off the debt, the account will be referred to the seminary’s collection agency. Students whose accounts have been referred to outside collection agencies will be required to pay all legal and collection costs in addition to the outstanding balance. These costs can be an additional 40-60% of the unpaid balance.

Accounts are considered delinquent after 30 days past due. Students with delinquent accounts will not be permitted to enroll in subsequent classes and will be denied requests for transcripts and diplomas.

Financial Aid Programs

Financing Your Education

AGTS is especially sensitive to the financial challenges students face today in seeking to finance graduate education for master’s programs. Fund-raising to increase the number of scholarships continue to be a priority at AGTS.

Most students are financing their programs through personal savings, employment, church support, loans, and scholarships.

AGTS encourages careful planning and stands ready to assist students in identifying all possible financial resources.

Student financial aid must be applied for each award year. Aid is divided into three categories: scholarships, grants and loans. Financial assistance comes from a variety of sources including federal financial aid, aid from outside sources, such as scholarships, veteran’s benefits, etc.

For federal financial aid, eligibility must be established by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) available online at http://wwwfafsa.ed.gov. You will be required to set a username and password to log in. Federal financial aid includes Perkins Loans and Direct Loans. For each of these, students must meet eligibility requirements as set forth by the U.S. Department of Education. Financial Aid packages are awarded based on information available at the time of packaging. Prior to disbursement, the information is confirmed and award packages may change in order to be in compliance with federal regulations and school policy. Another reason you could see a change in your award package is if a scholarship notification arrives in our office after your award letter has been printed. Students are kept informed of changes to their financial aid package via email and can view their record anytime by accessing My Financial Aid Page at http://web.evangel.edu/SFS/NetPartnerStudentLogon.aspx.

The first awarding of financial aid occurs on or before March 1, so it is important to file your FAFSA each year as early as possible to take advantage of all the aid you may be eligible for, as some funds are limited.

The priority deadline for filing your FAFSA is March 1. To receive federal aid, a FAFSA much be filed listing Evangel University as a college of choice. Evangel University’s school code is 002463. If the application is selected for verification, the process must be completed before a student’s financial aid is finalized. Federal aid is not disbursed unless we have received all required documents.

All financial aid documents should be completed and returned prior to July 1 to ensure timely delivery of funds for the fall semester. Students who return paperwork after July 1 are subject to late processing and delayed delivery of funds. Spring applicants are expected to have all financial documents completed no later than November 1 to ensure timely delivery of funds for the spring semester.

Verification

Returning students selected for verification will not be packaged with federal financial aid until all requested documents have been received and the process is completed. All necessary forms and worksheets are available at http://www.evangel.edu/financail/more-information/forms/.

Special Circumstances

A financial aid administer or committee may use professional judgment on a case-by-case basis only, to alter the data used to calculate the EFC for financial aid. Students experiencing unusual circumstances may consider requesting a professional judgment. For more information, please visit Student Financial Services at http://www.evangel.edu/financial/moreinformation/forms/ and select the appropriate “Special Circumstances Appeal” form. 

Special Students

Students who are not degree seeking and are admitted as unclassified students are not eligible for financial aid.

Withdrawal and Financial Aid Refund Policy

AGTS abides by the following fair and equitable refund policies for Title IV programs which refunds students for unearned tuition and fees for periods of time if the student withdraws or fails to complete the period of enrollment.

Withdrawal Procedure

Students who withdraw from AGTS are required to complete individual Withdrawal from Class forms for each course, and the Withdrawal from Seminary form.

Financial Aid Refund Policy


(Applies only to students receiving federal financial aid who drop to less than half-time status or who totally withdraw from seminary)

Students who withdraw completely from the seminary or who drop to less than halftime status prior to completing at least 60% of the semester or payment period must repay all of the unearned portion of the federal aid received. The amount of federal aid earned is determined by the number of days enrolled at AGTS within the semester or payment period up to 60% of that semester. The number of days a student is not enrolled equals the unearned portion of the semester or payment period. This amount will be returned to the lender and the student must make arrangements in the Business Office for repayment of these funds. If a student is enrolled for at least 60% of the semester or payment period, he/she has earned 100% of the federal funds received. For detailed information about the Federal Withdrawal Policy, see the Financial Aid Office.

Satisfactory Progress Standards for Financial Aid Recipients

See the current AGTS Student Handbook online at www.agts.edu, for policy on “Satisfactory Progress Standards for Financial Aid Recipients.”

Entrance and Exit Interviews

Students receiving a Federal Direct Student Loan, a Federal Unsubsidized Direct Loan or Perkins Loan are required by the federal government to attend entrance and exit interviews. The entrance interview must occur before receiving any loan funds. The exit interview is required when withdrawing, dropping below half-time or graduating from AGTS. Contact Evangel University’s Financial Services Office for details.

Debt Load


The goal of AGTS is to provide financial aid to all students in a fair and equitable way. When borrowing money for a seminary education, AGTS encourages borrowing conservatively so that future plans and opportunities for ministry are not limited or curtailed because of a high debt load.

Loan Deferments


Student may receive deferments of undergraduate loans while attending AGTS. Federal regulations stipulate specific requirements for eligibility and AGTS serves only as that certifying agent. Please contact the AGTS Registrar’s Office for further information.
