Payment Options

Payment of tuition and fees is due upon registering for classes. Payments may be made in full using: cash, personal check, cashier’s check, money order, debit card, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa. If you are using debit or credit card, follow this link to Pay Online. Other payment options are described below.


Criswell College Payment Plan

A payment plan is available for credit courses in the fall and spring terms only. The payment plan has a service fee and is paid in four installments for a single semester. The first month’s payment and service fee are due at registration. The other three payments are due on the 18th of September, October, and November for the Fall term and the 18th of February, March, and April for the Spring term. Contracts must be paid in full before the end of the semester. Late fees are assessed for payments five calendar days late and will recur each month until payment is received. Students will not be allowed to register with any financial obligation owed to the college.


Federal Student Loans

Federal student loans may be available to qualified students. Contact Financial Aid or see the Tuition & Aid page for applications and more information. 


Employer Tuition Reimbursement

Tuition reimbursement may be available through the student’s employer as an employee benefit. Students should contact the Human Resources department at their place of employment for more information. Students must pay their bill in full and will be reimbursed directly by their employer. Criswell College cannot allow a student to complete registration and attend courses without paying while waiting for tuition reimbursement from the employer.


Private Loans

Private loans may be available through the student’s bank or credit union. Private loans are not student loans, and payments are non-deferrable. Students should contact their personal banking institution for more information.


Delinquent Accounts

Students are responsible for the complete and timely payment of their account. The student’s account must be paid in full by the end of each term. Students with unpaid balances will incur penalties including late fees, restrictions on future enrollment, financial aid, access to certain student services, participation in college related trips, graduation postponed or denied, and/or other disciplinary actions.

For other questions regarding payment or student accounts, contact the Administrator of Student Accounts or call 214.818.1315, or make an appointment.
