Each semester has a payment deadline and the deadlines will be announced in Kerygma and will be available online, but below is a general idea of when the payment deadlines occur throughout the year:
- Fall - Due at the beginning of August
- Winter - Due in November
- Spring - Due at the beginning of December
- Summer - Due in April
- Winter - Due in September
- Summer - Due in March
If payment is not received by the appropriate payment deadline, classes for the semester will be dropped due to nonpayment. If you are dropped, you will receive an email from the DTS Registrar's office with instructions regarding re-registration for the semester.
If you register for a class for a current or upcoming semester and it is after the appropriate payment deadline, payment is due by Friday of the week you register. Some exceptions may apply if approved by the DTS Bursar.
Student Account payments are made online on CampusNet, by mail, or in person at the DTS Cashier. The Cashier's Office is open Monday through Friday, 9:30am-12:00pm and 12:45pm-4:00pm. The following payment options are available:
Cash is payable to the DTS Cashier (please do not mail cash).
Please make checks payable to “DTS.” Paper checks are accepted at the DTS Cashier or by mail. Checks must be U.S. currency or drawn on a U.S. bank. If mailing your check, please include your DTS ID# with your check and mail to:

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% nonrefundable convenience fee applies) by selecting “Make Online Payment” and then Credit/Debit card. Cards accepted are Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.
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’s 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:
- Complete the required information.
- Take the pdf you will receive once you have completed the required information to your bank.
- All the necessary information is on the pdf for your bank to transfer the funds to DTS.
- 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 and Doctor of Educational 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).
Note: If you are interested in support raising, please contact DTS Financial Aid and request a packet on support raising.
You may be receiving a scholarship from an outside source. If your scholarship will not be posted to your account prior to a payment deadline, please email the DTS Bursar at email@example.com a copy of your award letter prior to the payment deadline. The amount you are receiving will be taken into consideration for payment deadline purposes.
