Deferred Payment Plan
A deferred payment plan is also offered to students whose employers offer tuition reimbursement programs. Students pursuing this option must complete the Deferred Payment Plan Form.
Monthly Payment Option
You may enroll in a monthly payment option (MPO) with Tuition Management Systems if you are a full time student (6 or more credits a semester). This semester plan allows for four (4) equal monthly installments for a single semester balance. Payments are made directly to Tuition Management Systems by the 20th of each month starting in July and ending in October for the fall semester, and starting in December and ending in March for the spring semester. The monthly payment option (MPO) with Tuition Management Systems is not available for summer courses. If you enroll in the MPO before the semester bill is mailed, the bill will reflect a credit for the contracted amount. Tuition Management Systems contracts may be cancelled if payments are missed, resulting in a larger semester balance. The MPO is available for a $45 enrollment fee and includes personal account service, automated account information 24 hours a day and online access to your MPO account. For more information or to enroll in this program, please call a Tuition Management Systems Representative at 1-888-285-3052 or log onto their web site at www.afford.com/messiah.
A non-refundable pre-registration deposit of $200 is required for all new, first-time graduate students or re-enrolled graduate students. Paying this amount confirms your acceptance into our program. The deposit will be applied as a prepayment of your first semester’s tuition and fees.
You may submit your payment via check or credit card. Checks should be made payable to “Messiah College” and mailed to Messiah College, Graduate Programs, Suite 3060, 1 College Avenue, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055. Visa or MasterCard can be used online by clicking here.
Each student is given a credit for printing in campus labs.
Once enough pages have been printed to use all of this credit, the student will be billed for each additional page used.
Any remaining credit in one semester will not be rolled forward or added to the next semester's credit.
For more details on printing fees, please see the Information Technology Services website.
Messiah College is excited to announce our next step in "Going Green." We have partnered with CashNet to provide paperless billing and secure online payment options beginning with the Fall 2010 semester billing. Students will be contacted via their Messiah email account to access their tuition bill. Our payment options now include online check, credit card or the traditional mail-in check.
IMPORTANT: Please see the Business Office Website for important changes regarding payment options and procedures. (The information available here applies to both graduate and undergraduate students.)

Withdrawal Fees and Tuition Refunds
Any student who withdraws from a course will be assessed a nominal fee in accordance with the college's graduate refund policies.

There will be no tuition refunds after the student has completed at least one third of the course.
