Business Office

The Grace College Business Office is here to help students manage their Student Accounts and provide information about tuition payments. Read more about Student Accounts, terms of payment, undergraduate and graduate tuition payments, and tuition refund policies.

If you have any questions or concerns,

please call the Business Office at 1-800-544-7223, ext. 6075.

Your Student Account:

Fall semester bills will be mailed to students' home addresses in mid-July. Payment is due by July 29, 2016. Spring semester statements will be mailed in mid-December. Payment is due by January 9, 2017

Students will have a password and pin number to access their student account on the campus portal. After the first week (the drop/add period), the online account will reflect the current status. Email balances are sent to the student’s Grace email account each month. It is the student’s responsibility to keep current on the status of their account and forward this information to parents as needed.
Common monthly charges that may be applied during the year are:

  • Library fines
  • Parking citations
  • Meal charges (for not having your card)
  • Books charged to your account during the first two weeks of the semester if applicable
  • Utility charges (for select dorms)
  • Cable charges (for select dorms)

Check Cashing:

The Business Office will cash checks up to $100.00 a day. An ATM is located on the first floor of Indiana Hall.

Check Request:

Students requesting a check for excess money from their student account must request the check by 4 p.m. on Monday to receive a check on Wednesday. Checks may be sent by U.S. mail or picked up in the Business Office. Credits are available beginning the third week of classes. Students may request up to $100.00 cash weekly from their student account credit.

Deposits:

Undergrad $200.00 deposits are held in a security account separate from the student account. Upon graduation or withdrawal from Grace, the deposit is moved to the student account to help cover unpaid balances and charges that may be applied. The remainder will be refunded to the student.

Deposits made for GOAL enrollment and deposits for seminary, graduate and master-level enrollment are considered as payments to the student account and will reduce the overall first semester cost.

Terms of Payment:

All charges for the current semester and any unpaid prior charges are due in full by the semester due date. Balances not paid by the due date, excluding financial aid that has not been disbursed, are considered past due and are subject to a 1.5 percent monthly finance charge.

Grace offers two payment options. One of the following options must be chosen and implemented before the semester due date.

  1. Pay in Full:

    Pay all semester charges in full on or before the semester due date. We accept cash, check or credit card (VISA, MasterCard and Discover) payments.

  2. Payment Plan:

    Tuition Management Services (TMS) is a private organization established to offer a low-cost monthly payment system for paying education expenses. There is a non-refundable, $55 annual membership fee, but there are no other interest or finance charges. TMS is not a loan program, but if you need a monthly payment plan, then TMS is the way to go. You establish a contract with TMS based on the amount you need to pay Grace for the academic year. TMS will divide the amount of your contract into equal monthly payments. Payment is due to TMS the first day of each month and then forwarded on to us at the end of each month. Only payments received monthly by TMS are forwarded on to us. We do not receive the money in advance of your payment. You can contact TMS at 1-800-356-8329 or via its web site.

Payment by the deadline is our indication of planned attendance and secures registration. In cases where payment has not been made, or where a payment plan has not been approved by the Business Office, Grace assumes the student is not coming and removes them from classes, housing and meal plans.

Students who carry a balance greater than $500.00 will not be permitted to register for the spring semester. Students who carry a balance greater than $200.00 will not be permitted to register for the fall or summer school semesters.

Responsibility for Payment:

The student is personally responsible for payment of the student account. If the balance is not paid as agreed, withdrawal from Grace may result, and Grace College & Seminary will retain a security interest in all transcripts, diplomas, letters of recommendation or grade reports, which shall not be released until this debt is fully paid. If it becomes necessary to enforce payment of this account, the account may be turned over to a collection agency, and the student will be held responsible for all collection costs.
