Student Financial Services
Tuition and Fees
Tuition charges are based on the level, school, and department of the course (not the degree program of the student). For example, if a student enrolls in a 500-level School of Mission and Theology course, she pays the rate for 500-level School of Mission and Theology courses no matter what her degree program is. The price listings below are the costs for one quarter unit. Courses range from 2 to 12 units. Most courses are 4 units each.
Please note that 500-level rates may be different in each of the schools.

Third Party Payments
Below are the various avenues that Third Party individuals and organizations can use to provide financial support to Fuller students.
NON-STUDENT (THIRD PARTY) USERS
Fuller allows for a student to set up a non-student account in order to make payments on their behalf. Fuller refers to this as a Third Party User Account. Only the student has the ability to set up a non-student third party as an Authorized User, and the students can set up this authorization through the Student Account Center. The authorization allows the Third Party to use this option to make payments online on their behalf and/or view the account balance or activity
To set up a Non-Student Third Party User:
- The student logs into their account in the Student Account Center
- Select “Authorized Users” under “My Profile Setup”
- Select the “Add Authorized User” tab and add the third party’s email address
- Choose the levels of access you wish to allow the third party
- Click “I Agree” to verify the information entered is true and correct, and submit
Once the student has set-up a non-student third party as an Authorized User, the Fuller Student Account Center will send the Third Party an introductory email containing instructions for logging in and selecting a password. Please save this email for future reference.
Note: There is a separate process to authorize the release of financial information to a third party. Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), all financial and non-directory information on your student record is protected and confidential. To waive these rights, and to request the disclosure of personally identifiable information to a third party, written authorization is required.
Checks can be mailed to Fuller on behalf of a particular student. Be sure the student's name and Student ID Number accompanies the check. Please also, specify for which quarter the funds are intended (ie. Spring 2022) and how you wish Fuller to handle any excess funds over and above the quarterly tuition and fees (ie. use excess funds for living expenses, return excess funds etc.).
- The student’s full name
- The student ID Number
- For which quarter the funds are intended (ie. Spring 2022)
- How you wish Fuller to handle any excess funds over and above the tuition and fees (ie. use excess funds for living expenses, return excess funds etc.).
