Automatic Payment Plan

On this page:
To help you meet your educational expenses, Saint Paul School of Theology is pleased to offer an Automatic Payment Plan (APP) as a convenient budget plan. Students who choose to use this service may make one-time payments or enroll in an Automatic Payment Plan.

APP is a tuition management plan that provides you with a low cost option for budgeting tuition and other educational expenses. It is not a loan program. You have no debt; there are no interest or finance charges.
You may budget your tuition and fees in the following ways:
  • Automatic Bank Payment (ACH) which are payments that you have authorized Saint Paul School of Theology to process directly with your financial institution. These payments are simply bank-to-bank transfers of funds that you have pre-approved for your expenses at Saint Paul School of Theology. Payments may be made from either your checking or savings account.
  • Credit Card Option (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express) Paying with your credit card gives you the option of taking advantage of any bonus programs that may be offered by your credit card company. Your monthly payment will automatically be charged to the credit card you designate.
After you click the "Make Payment" button on the Saint Paul School of Theology web page, you will be lead through the process of creating an Automatic Payment Plan or making a one-time online payment. You will need to have the following information available:
  • Nine digit Student ID (this will not be your social security number).
  • The name, address, phone number and e-mail address of the person responsible for making the payments.
  • If paying by automatic bank payments you will need the bank account number, and bank routing number. Most of this information is located on your check.
  • If paying by credit card, you will need the credit card number and expiration date.

If you have received formal acknowledgment of a scholarship, a third-party contract, or a financial aid award which will cover all of your tuition and fees, you do not need to sign up for this payment plan. If these funding sources are insufficient to pay the entire amount due or if you have applied but not yet received notice of eligibility, you may sign up for the payment plan to manage the remaining amount due, if the balance owed exceeds $100.

It's recommended but not required. We recommend it so we can send you an e-mail confirming your payment.
Will you send me a confirmation of my payment?

Please contact the Business Office by calling 913-253-5051 for further details.
Can I make an online payment if my account has a stop/hold on it?
Yes. However making an online payment will not release your account from any financial hold until the processing is complete in 3-5 business days. For assistance, in expediting the removal of a hold, please contact the Business Office.
What if my payment is returned for insufficient funds? 
Payments are automatically run through the bank twice, and then reported to us as NSF if funds are still not available. If funds are uncollectible, the payment is run through again to see if funds are there before the payment is officially reported as NSF. You will be notified if you have a payment returned for non-sufficient funds (NSF). There will be a $20 NSF fee applied to your account. Be aware your account may be placed on a Business Office Hold if you have an NSF payment that is not replaced.
Can I sign up to have my installment payments paid automatically through automatic withdrawals at my bank?
Yes. You can enroll to have your payments automatically withdrawn from your designated account. The same payment schedule applies (25% down, 4 installments, balance must be paid before the end of the semester).
Do I need a User ID and password?
No, you will not need a User ID or password to make payments online. Payments are tracked using your Student ID found on your Library card.
How secure is my payment and personal information?
For your protection, all of your transaction information is encrypted when it travels over the Internet over a "secure-socket."
