The Board of Directors of the Seminary has determined that students must be adequately covered with health insurance. It is important that this cost be included in each student's estimate of expenses. Verification of an existing policy is due upon registration for each semester of attendance. Premium insurance coverage is compulsory for international students.
Billed tuition, rent, and fees are payable, in full, by the 15th day of the following month (for example: Student billing statements dated Sept. 30 are due no later than Oct. 15). There is a finance charge of 0.5 percent per month on the open account balance. Seminary policy requires all students' account balances to be paid in full before they can register for the following semester. The Seminary accepts cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover for payment. Please make checks payable to Pittsburgh Theological Seminary (or PTS). Credit card payments are accepted online at MyPTS or in person at the Business Office.
All Seminary charges and fees are payable in U.S. funds. Foreign checks or money orders must have the U.S. bank with which they are affiliated printed on the check or money order. Additional fees may be assessed for foreign checks or money orders. If checks are returned to us by the bank for the reason of insufficient funds, an additional fee of $25 will be assessed.
