Tuition and Fees
** As we seek to serve our students better, this page’s content will soon be moved to the Undergraduate and Graduate sections of our website. We desire to deliver clear content to Moody students whether you are pursuing your studies online or on-campus. Please familiarize yourself with the relevant pages! **
See below for information regarding Moody Bible Institute's payment and refund policies, tuition, fees, the Moody Payment Plan and more.
In order to receive access to a course, students must pay the balance in full according to the following policies. Students with past due balances will not be allowed to enroll in future courses, receive official transcripts, grades, certificates of scholastic standing, or their degrees. Students must check their @moody.edu e-mail address and student portal regularly to receive pertinent account information.
Balances are due in full one week before the online, extension, or self-paced courses begin unless other payment arrangements have been made (i.e. payment plan, employment vouchers, etc.). Payments for Independent Study courses are due at the time of registration.
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.
A semester payment plan is available for eligible students. See below for more information.

This plan allows the semester total to be split into monthly payments (see table below).

Textbooks and Supplies
Costs for textbooks will vary depending on course and where books are purchased.
When a student receives a financial credit (fee waiver, dropping courses, etc.), the adjustments are credited to the student’s account according to the refund schedule. This credit will be applied toward remaining charges on the student account. Credit balances from Title IV funds must be refunded. All credit balances will be refunded at the end of each semester.
Dropping courses may have financial penalties and academic penalties (see Academic Policies). Students who drop courses before the start date will receive full credit on their accounts for all payments made (if applicable) toward tuition and fees.
Refunds will be issued based on the date a course is dropped, according to the schedule in the Academic Catalog from the first date of the session, which may be earlier than the first meeting day of the course (dates are subject to change). The session for extension site courses begins the Monday of the week when a course first meets. Courses may vary in length and follow a different refund schedule. Please contact email@example.com for specific dates and information regarding Refund Policies.
