Student Fees 2022-2023

Cooperative Program Support

This year the Southern Baptist Convention will contribute approximately $4,200 toward the cost of each full-time Southern Baptist student at the seminary. Student fees are effective August 1.

Student Spouse Discount

The spouse of an enrolled, full-time student (main campus only) will pay one-half tuition for regular semester courses. The half-tuition for spouses does not include independent studies, academic intensives, Internet courses, or any doctoral work. On-campus hybrid courses are available for spousal discount, also.†

Missionary Discount

A $1,000 per semester tuition discount is available to returning Journeymen and International Service Corps missionaries during their first two semesters at NOBTS. The discounts are available only to returning missionaries who completed two years of service with the International Mission Board and are full-time students. The discount only applies to the student’s first two semesters and must be taken within 18 months after returning to the United States.‡

Payment of Fees

Account balances must be paid in full each month. Satisfactory settlement of all accounts, including library fines, must be made before graduation. All past due account balances must be paid in full before final day for payment (close of registration for each academic term).

Student fees are subject to change without prior notice. Changes in fees will be posted in the Business Office.
