Online Electronic Payment - Checking or Savings

Online electronic payments from a checking or savings account are accepted at the bottom of your student account statement by clicking on “Make Online Payment” and then selecting echeck. You will need your US Bank routing number and US Bank Account Number.

Note: This is not the same as “Online Bill Pay” through your bank. “Online Bill Pay” can take up to three to four weeks for DTS to receive payment from your bank. It is more advantageous for you to do an online electronic payment through CampusNet.

Online Credit Card Payment

NO CREDIT OR DEBIT CARDS ARE TAKEN AT THE DTS CASHIER OR OVER THE PHONE. Online credit/debit card payments are accepted at the bottom of your student account statement (2.75% convenience fee applies) and then selecting credit/debit card. Cards accepted are Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. VISA CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS ARE NOT ACCEPTED.

Payment from International Funds

For students residing in a country other than the United States, DTS has contracted with Western Union Business Solutions (WUBS)/Travelex to assist with transferring your payment from your bank to DTS' bank. To make a payment using WUBS/Travelex, please click on “Make Payment from International Funds” at the bottom of your student account statement on CampusNet and then follow these steps:

  1. Complete the required information.
  2. Take the pdf you will receive once you have completed the required information to your bank.
  3. All the necessary information is on the pdf for your bank to transfer the funds to DTS.
  4. Please allow up to two weeks for this process to complete and for the funds to post to your DTS student account.

Tuition Management Systems Payment Plan (TMS)

DTS has contracted with Tuition Management Systems to provide three month (Summer enrollment), five month (Fall/Spring enrollment), and 10 month (Fall enrollment only) payment plans for Master and Doctor of Philosophy students as well as six month and 12 month payment plans for Doctor of Ministry students. Winter semesters for Master and Doctor of Philosophy need to be included preferably in a fall plan, but can be included in a spring plan. View TMS Payment Plans.

Third Party Support

If you have supporters such as churches, friends, family, etc., that want to contribute to your DTS student account, they may complete and submit the Giving to Students form.

Please note: Per IRS regulations, any payment which has the result directly or indirectly of funding a specific person's account will not be tax deductible (Rev. Rule 83-104).
