All students are expected to become familiar with the financial obligations they will incur while attending Moody Theological Seminary and Graduate School.
Approximate semester expenses do not include books, supplies, fees, medical insurance or personal expenses.
Moody Theological Seminary and Graduate School students are required to pay their bills, in full, by the first day of classes each semester or to enroll in the Moody Payment Plan.
If students are expecting institutional scholarships, outside scholarships, stipends, or loans to help cover their balance and they are not awarded by Moody’s due date, students are still responsible to make payments on time for the amount due.

*INSTRUCTIONAL SUPPLEMENT FEE
This fee helps supplement the costs for labor and material for additional notes and equipment used in most classes. Among other things this means that students, for the most part, will not have additional expenses for class notes required by the professor.
**THESIS CONTINUATION FEE
This fee is charged each semester after Research Methods and Thesis until a grade has been received for the thesis. The fee is the equivalent of the tuition for one credit hour of class. The fee compensates for the administrative costs surrounding the continued monitoring of a thesis. The fee is charged beginning in the fall semester following the student's completion of Research Methods and Thesis. It applies to students currently writing a thesis for any degree program. The fee applies to fall and spring semesters.
Michigan seminary students are eligible to participate in the MBI Student Health Insurance Plan provided that they are full-time status (9 or more credit hours). Enrollment forms can be found on my.moody.edu. International students are not allowed to waive the Moody health insurance plan. All students are personally responsible for any health care expenses not covered by their insurance (deductibles, copayments, excluded items and services, etc.). Students are responsible for full compliance with all terms and conditions of their insurance policy, and for following the payment policy of the health care provider, office, clinic, or hospital from which they receive services. This may mean that payment is required at the time of service.
All students required to have coverage will be automatically enrolled in and charged the Individual Moody Student Health Insurance Plan premium and will remain on that plan unless we receive a waiver form. If a student chooses to be covered under another insurance plan, the student must provide Moody with evidence that insurance is in effect by submitting a completed Student Insurance Waiver through his or her student portal. This form must be submitted with a copy of both sides of their current insurance card every semester in which the student is enrolled.
The approved alternative insurance plan must be comparable in coverage to the plan offered by Moody and must cover the student for the entire academic year. The deadline to submit enrollment/waiver documents is July 25 for the fall semester and December 14 for the spring semester. Students who do not submit documents prior to these deadlines will remain on the Moody Student Health Insurance Plan and will be responsible for the full semester premium. Commuter students are eligible to participate in the Moody Student Health Insurance Plan provided that one or more of the following conditions apply:
All international students with F-1 status, their spouses, and dependent children are required to carry health insurance when those dependents are living with the student. International students may not waive the Moody Student Health Insurance Plan.
Listed below are the prices for Moody Student Health Insurance Plan for the 2018–2019 academic year. A separate $20 insurance handling fee is assessed to each student, per semester, regardless of type of coverage if insurance is required or taken. Please note dependent coverage is only available for international students.
|Policy||Fall 2018||Spring and Summer 2019|
|Student and Spouse (international only)||$1,594||$2,466|
|Student and Family (international only)||$2,391||$3,699|
|Student and Children (international only)||$1,594||$2,466|
Note: If both husband and wife are students, they may each enroll under the Individual plan.
Note: Waivers submitted after July 25 (fall) and December 14 (spring) will be subject to a $10 late fee. Waivers not accepted after August 1 (fall) and December 21 (spring).
The Moody Payment Plan is an interest-free alternative to a lump sum payment of the student bill. It is administered by the Student Accounts Office in Moody Central. The plan is available to all campus students with the exception of international students (F-1 Visa holders) attending their first semester.
This plan allows the semester total to be split into monthly payments (see table below).
Students are eligible to enroll in the Moody Payment Plan each semester. Enrollment requires a down payment and a non-refundable $60 enrollment fee.
Spring 2019 Payment Plan is available now.
