Admission | Fees And Expenses

Fee

The Fee Structure with a detailed breakdown is given below. The fees charged by the Seminary do not reflect the actual cost of educating a student. The Consolidated Fees (both Plan I and Plan II) are thus subsidised amounts. All students sent by churches, missions, and institutions are expected to pay fees according to Plan I.

Considering the fact that some students may not have a sponsor, and may have limited means of support due to poverty, opposition from family, or lack of a church nearby to support them, the Board has established a further reduced Plan II fee structure. Those applying for Plan II must demonstrate their need as required by the Seminary.

All fees due to the Seminary may be sent directly to the Seminary by Demand Draft. Please enquire at the office if you wish to send the amount by other means. Fees may be paid in advance preferably for a year or a semester at a time. If funds are sent through the student, it is the sponsor's responsibility to see that the student pays the Seminary promptly.

Prior to registration each semester, all students must settle any outstanding dues (fees, fines, charges, loan, etc.) from the previous semester/year, and deposit a minimum of Rs 30,000 as advance fees for the coming semester. The rest of the fees may be paid in advance on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. Students who have not cleared their dues will not be allowed to register or stay on campus.

PTS Board reserves the right to amend the fee structure from time to time.

Scholarships and Sponsorships

In addition to the concessions mentioned above, certain sponsorships may be available for students in financial need. These are allotted by the Scholarship Committee, and carry certain obligations on the part of the student.

A limited number of paid work assignments are available for students. However, most of these assignments will not cover much more than pocket money.

Student's Personal Expenses

The amount payable to the Seminary (fees and other charges) does not include the student’s personal expenses such as travel, pocket money, medical expenses, books and stationery, etc.

The amount shown for Pocket Money is the minimum recommended. Sponsors may choose to pay more. However, all students are expected to live modestly. This amount is meant for purchase of toiletries and personal items.

Similarly, the amount designated for books and stationery also is a recommended minimum. This money may be used primarily to purchase required textbooks, notebooks, paper and other supplies.

Sponsors may pay personal expenses of the students directly to the student. However, for the sake of convenience and as a service to them, the Seminary will receive funds for personal expenses of the students and pass them on to the student as per instructions given. Funds will not be received in excess of recommended amounts. Funds will not be advanced to students for personal expenses under any circumstances.

Sponsors are requested to send personal expenses including medical expenses to the student promptly. The Seminary will not allow students to continue their studies if they do not have adequate funds for personal expenses.

Emergency Deposit

Each new student entering the Seminary must at the time of admission deposit Rs 3,000 as “Emergency Deposit.” This fund will be made available to the student only for major hospitalization (as advance) or for settling dues at the time of leaving the Seminary. Any amount advanced from this deposit for hospitalization must be returned before the student will be allowed to register for the next semester.

Other Rates and Charges

Special or part time students who take less than 15 credit hour per semester either for audit or credit) will be charged tuition fees at the rate of Rs 500 per credit hour per semester. This amount does not include mess or any other charges. Those taking 15 or more credit hours will be counted as full time students.

Fine for arriving late at the Seminary will be calculated as follows: Rs 1,000 for the first 24 hours or part thereof. Rs 500 per day (24 hours or part thereof) for the following days. The name of the student will be struck from the rolls after an absence of 7 calendar days. No student will be allowed to register or attend classes before paying late fees. Those whose names have been struck off from the rolls must pay a re-admission fee of Rs 2,000. (Re-admission is entirely at the discretion of the Faculty.)

Refund of Fees and Charges

Fees: If a student withdraws from the Seminary for whatever reason, or is asked to discontinue by the Faculty as a part of disciplinary action, he shall forfeit the fees (tuition and boarding) for the semester for which he is enrolled. The amount paid in excess of the semester for which he was registered will be returned at the time of leaving, without interest.

Emergency Deposit: This amount is refundable without interest at the time of the student leaving the Seminary after his outstanding dues, if any, are settled.

Other Fees and Charges: All other fees and charges shall be settled as of the end of the month in which one is leaving.
