Payment Plans

Summit Bible College is committed to keeping the cost of your education affordable to you. Pay Simple, our online recurring billing company,  has allowed us to keep your cost and payments low with  interest-free payment schedules to help meet your financial needs.  Students not paying in full must participate in our payment plan.  A follow-up email is typically sent to enroll with our online payment company, Pay Simple shortly after you receive your letter of acceptance.  A Recurring Payment Authorization form will be attached for you to complete and return.  Your payment schedule will not begin until we are in receipt of your completed form.  A notification email will then be sent verifying your payment schedule.  If a student misses two consecutive payments on a payment plan, his or her current enrollment may be jeopardized. Payment plan students must sign up and abide by the rules.

We understand that some students may prefer to set up their own payment schedule.  You may do so here at this Pay Simple On Line Payment Form by choosing ‘Payment Plan’ at the drop-down menu under ‘Payment Information.’  You must use the information sent on your follow-up email to complete your online payment form.  Students must sign up 30 days after receiving their letter of acceptance.  Please feel free to call the college and ask for our bookkeeper if you have any questions completing the payment form.

Students who pre-pay their total tuition will be given a 5% discount on these fees. Payments in full should be mailed directly to Summit Bible College at the above address.

Withdrawal and Tuition Refund Policy

The student must submit a written request to withdraw within the first 12 days of the quarter. The student will be refunded 90% if he or she withdraws within the first 5 days and 75% thereafter to the 12th day. No refunds are given after the 12th day. Books, application, registration, and other college fees are non-refundable. Students paying their tuition up front will receive the same rules for the whole sum as is granted for the monthly payment program. These "pay in full" students will not qualify for any refunds of any part of the whole after the 12th day of the beginning of their first quarter. Exception: VA students paid for by the VA will receive 100% refund if they withdraw within the first two weeks and 75% if they withdraw in the third or fourth weeks. Only $10 of their application fee is non-refundable. No refunds are given after the fourth week.

Grievance Procedure

All grievances are handled according to scripture. The following system is our method of dealing with conflicts:

  1. Attempt reconciliation by discussing it with the offending or offended party. (Matthew 18:15)
  2. If your brother or sister does not listen, go to him taking a committed Christian as a witness and explain your side. If it is not possible to go personally, write a letter to the parties involved and get a pastor to verify it by signing it. (Matthew 18:16)
  3. If you are still not satisfied, write a formal complaint, have a pastor sign and verify it, then turn it in to the Disciplinary Board of Summit Bible College. Allow at least two weeks for a reply. (Matthew 18:17)
  4. Once a decision is made, pray about the alternatives, whether favorable or not, seek peace and guidance in the Word of God and get council. (Phillipians 2:1–4)
  5. Act on what the Lord is speaking through the confirmations of the above steps. (Luke 17:3, Revelations 3:19)
