Billing and Payment

Please pay in full for courses when you register. You may apply to the Semester Installment Payment Plan if you cannot make full payment at registration.

Students who are financially delinquent will not be able to enroll in the following semester, and the Seminary has the right to withhold grades, transcripts and diploma until the student account is paid in full.

Methods of Payment

Tuition payments can be made by cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or through the Semester Installment Payment Plan.

Checks which are returned by the bank due to insufficient funds or because the account has been closed will be charged a fee of $20.00. Checks returned due to insufficient funds will be redeposited one time only. If the check is returned by the bank a second time, the student will be required to pay by cash or certified check.

Students who apply for student loans must submit a Master Promissory Note to the Financial Aid Office before any registration will be processed.

Semester Installment Payment Plan

St. Charles Borromeo Seminary is pleased to offer students enrolled in the Religious Studies Division a payment plan to finance the cost of Academic Fees over the period of a semester. The plan is offered as a service to the student and allows the student to finance tuition and related costs over the period of a semester. The payment schedule calculates the balance remaining after financial aid is applied; financial aid funds, such as loans, scholarships, grants, etc. are not recognized as payments toward the payment plan. Students may still elect to make full payment at time of registration.

Semester installment payments should be mailed to the Finance Office:

Questions about the Plan

Who May Enroll?

Religious Studies Division students at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary whose academic and other fees total $300 or greater.

How does the Plan Work?

The Payment Plan requires a first payment of 25% of the total amount due, plus the $25 Payment Plan Fee, at registration. The remaining balance is payable to the Seminary in three monthly installments (approximately each 30 days). The payment plan expires at the end of each semester and must be renewed by the student each Fall, Spring or Summer semester.

What is the Cost of the Plan?

The plan is interest free. The Seminary does assess a one-time administrative charge each semester to offset the additional cost of record keeping and billing. The charge is $25.00.

How Do I Enroll In the Plan?

The Semester Installment Payment Plan form is available by downloading the form here and should be submitted with initial payment and registration form to the Religious Studies Division office.

What if I Become Delinquent?

St. Charles Borromeo Seminary will assess late fees equal to 3.75% of the balance due for payments not received as scheduled. Further, the Seminary reserves the right to assign your delinquent account to a collection agency and you will be responsible for all collection costs, any additional attorney and court costs.

Checks returned by the Bank will result in removal from this plan with the entire amount becoming due and payable.
