Tuition Payment Options

Option 1- Payment in full: Personal funds, loans, grants, scholarships, etc., can be used toward payment in full at registration. Federal Work-Study funds cannot be used toward payment in full.

Option 2 - Monthly payment plan:  After the financial aid listed on your award letter (except Federal Work-Study) has been applied, the remaining semester balance is divided into monthly payments. There is a $50 deferred payment fee per semester. There is no monthly interest charge; however, a $25 late payment fee is assessed for each late payment.

  • Payment Methods Payments may be made in person at the cashier’s window, by phone with a credit or debit card, online through the records portal or by mailing a payment to: Evangel University, Office of the Bursar, 1111 N Glenstone Ave, Springfield, MO, 65802.

Office of Financial  Aid

Withdrawal Policy for Financial Aid

A student who wishes to withdraw from the University must contact the office of the Vice President for Student Development to make written application for withdrawal. This is an official withdrawal. Failing to attend classes does not automatically withdraw a student from school. However, if the Office of Financial Aid receives notice from another department on campus (such as instructors or a resident director) that a student has ceased academic participation and/or has moved out of campus housing, the student’s financial record will be reviewed as an unofficial withdrawal. For further information on Evangel's leave of absence policy, go to the Student Handbook at http://web.evangel.edu/Apps/Public/studentHandbook/.

Evangel takes on certain financial obligations based on student enrollment as determined at the beginning of each new school year. A student who wishes to withdraw may also assume certain financial obligations. All schools who disburse federal aid are required to implement the Return of Title IV Funds federal refund policy, which can result in significant cost to a withdrawing student. Therefore, withdrawal from school should be considered carefully. The Return of Title IV Funds calculation relates to students receiving federal financial aid. A copy of the Return of Title IV Funds worksheet is available in the Office of Financial Aid.

A prorated schedule is used up through the 60% point in each payment period to determine the amount of Title IV funds the student has earned at the time of withdrawal. This is calculated by a percentage based on the number of days completed, divided by the number of days in the payment period. If there is a break during the payment period of five days or more (including weekends), those days are deducted from the total number of days in the term (i.e. Thanksgiving and spring breaks).

For students receiving federal financial aid, but the student never begins attending classes, we are required by federal regulations to return the disbursed funds to the respective programs. If the student begins attending some but not all of his or her classes, we are required to recalculate the student’s Pell or Iraq Afghanistan Service Grant award based on the student’s actual enrollment status. [CFR 668.21 & 685.303]

After the 60% point in the payment period, a student has earned 100% of the Title IV funds he or she was scheduled to receive during the period and the school will not be required to return any federal funds received for that period. However, a school must still determine whether the student is eligible for a post-withdrawal disbursement. Therefore, if a student was eligible for federal funding, the calculation will still be completed regardless of the date of withdrawal to determine eligibility for post-withdrawal disbursement.

If the student is responsible for a portion of the Title IV funding that must return, the student will be notified of their responsibility by the Office of Financial Aid. Regulations state that a student does not have to repay a grant overpayment of $50 or less for grant overpayments resulting from the student’s withdrawal.

The student’s withdrawal date is determined by one of the following criteria:

Official Withdrawal

  • The date the student notified the school of their intent to withdraw will be used, unless the student continues to attend and a later date of documented participation at an academically related activity is available.

Unofficial or Administrative Withdrawal

  • The date of the student’s last documented participation at an academically related activity will be used, if available. If the last date of participation is not available, the midpoint of the semester will be used, if attendance was established at the beginning of the term.

Withdrawal After Rescission of Official Notification

  • The date from the student’s original withdrawal in the previous official notification will be used, unless the student provides written notification rescinding the intent to withdraw, and a later date of documented participation at an academically related activity is available.

The date of the Institution’s Determination that the student has withdrawn is determined by the following criteria:

Official Withdrawal

  • The date of the initial notification by the student.

Unofficial Withdrawal

  • The date that the school becomes aware that the student has ceased academic participation.

Administrative Withdrawal

  • If a student is administratively withdrawn due to disciplinary action or the discovery that the student is not attending and cannot successfully complete the term, the date of that action or determination will be used

Withdrawal After Rescission of Official Notification

  • The date the school becomes aware that the student did not, or will not, complete the period of enrollment.

Students who withdraw from Evangel may receive a partial refund of tuition, room and board as follows:

Fall and Spring

  • On or before FIRST DAY of classes, 100 percent tuition
  • FIRST FULL week of classes, 75 percent tuition
  • SECOND FULL week of classes, 50 percent tuition
  • THIRD FULL week of classes, 25 percent tuition
  • FOURTH week of classes and after, 0 percent tuition


  • On or before the fourth day of the session, 100% refund
  • After the fourth day of the session, 0% refund

Room and board is prorated according to the day the student officially checks out of the Residence Hall.

In computing refunds, applied music fees are treated the same way as tuition.

Financial Assistance

Student financial aid must be applied for each award year. Aid is divided into four categories: scholarships, grants, loans, and employment. Financial assistance comes from a variety of sources including federal financial aid, institutional aid, and aid from outside sources, such as private scholarships, ROTC, Veterans’ Benefits, Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), and Vocational Rehabilitation.

For federal financial aid, eligibility must be established by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) available online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. New students and parents will be required to create a User Name and Password.  This is required to sign your application electronically.  Federal financial aid includes the Pell Grant, TEACH Grant, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), Direct Loans, and the Work-Study program.  For each of these, students must meet eligibility requirements as set forth by the U. S. Department of Education.

Financial Aid packages are awarded based on information available at the time of packaging. Prior to disbursement, the information is confirmed and award packages may change in order to comply with federal regulations and University policy. Any scholarship notifications that arrive after packaging will also result in an award change. Students are notified of changes to their financial aid package via e-mail and can view their record online at any time by accessing your My Financial Aid page at https://web.evangel.edu/SFS/NetPartnerStudent/Logon.aspx.

The total of federal grants, institutional awards, discounts and endowed and outside scholarships received by a student may not exceed the total cost of tuition, fees, on-campus room and board and books for the semester.

It is important to file your FAFSA each year as early as possible to take advantage of all the aid for which you may be eligible, as some funds are limited. To receive federal financial aid, a FAFSA must be filed listing Evangel University as a college choice. Evangel University's school code is 002463. If the application is selected for verification, the process must be completed before a student's financial aid is finalized. Federal Aid is not disbursed until all required documents are received.



Priority Deadlines - All financial aid documents should be completed and returned prior to June 1 to ensure timely delivery of funds for the fall semester.  Students who return paperwork after June 1 are subject to late processing and delayed delivery of funds.  Spring applicants are expected to have all financial aid documents completed no later than November 15 to ensure timely delivery of funds for the spring semester.

Verification - If the FAFSA is selected for verification, all requested documents must be received and the process has to be completed before a student's financial aid is finalized.  Federal Aid is not disbursed until all required documents are received. It is imperative that you respond immediately if selected, in order to ensure availability of all aid for which you may be eligible.  All necessary forms and worksheets are available at www.evangel.edu/financial/more-information/forms/.

Special Circumstances - A financial aid administrator or committee may use professional judgment on a case-by-case basis only, to alter the data used to calculate the EFC for financial aid.   Families experiencing unusual circumstances may consider requesting a professional judgment. For more information, visit www.evangel.edu/financial/more-information/forms/ and select the appropriate "Special Circumstances Appeal" form.

Dual Enrollment - Dual enrolled students needing financial aid to cover costs at both schools must file a Consortium Agreement and be registered for all classes.  Students can only receive aid from the school where their degree will be received.  Financial aid eligibility will take into account all hours in which a student enrolls at each institution that apply toward the student's degree program.

Study Abroad - Students desiring to study abroad must first facilitate all necessary paperwork through the Records and Registration office.  Financial aid may be pursued once administrative approval is granted and all required documentation is provided to the Office of Financial Aid. 

Special Students - Students who are not degree seeking and are admitted as "special students" are not eligible for financial aid.


General requirements for receiving any Evangel University scholarship include full-time enrollment (12 hours) each term, a 2.0 cumulative GPA, and one or all of the following: (a) application to Evangel University, (b) recognized scholastic achievement, (c) consistent personal character and spiritual conduct, (d) financial need, and (e) good standing with the university.

FAFSA Policy - According to Evangel University policy, students are required to complete a FAFSA each year in order to receive athletic or need-based institutional aid.

Application for a Federal Pell Grant is made by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Unlike a loan, a Federal Pell Grant does not have to be repaid. Federal Pell Grants are awarded only to undergraduate students who have not yet earned a Bachelor's degree. For many students, the Federal Pell Grant provides a foundation to which other financial aid may be added. The U.S. Department of Education establishes funding for the Federal Pell Grant yearly. Students can only receive a Pell Grant for up to a maximum of 12 semesters or the equivalent.

The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant Program provides up to $4,000 per year to students who intend to teach in a public or private elementary or secondary school. In exchange for receiving a TEACH Grant, the student must agree to serve as a full-time teacher, in a high-need field, that serves low-income students for at least four academic years within eight calendar years of completing the program of study for which they receive a TEACH Grant.

The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is available to undergraduates who have exceptional financial need (that is, students with the lowest Expected Family Contributions or EFCs). It gives priority to students who receive Federal Pell Grants. An FSEOG also does not have to be repaid. Application is made by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).


Students must be enrolled at least half time to receive a Federal Subsidized Direct Loan, Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS), Federal Additional Unsubsidized Direct, or Federal Unsubsidized Direct Loan. All these loans MUST be repaid.

Federal Subsidized Direct Loans - This loan is awarded based on financial need. The student does not make any payments or pay interest while enrolled at least half time; the federal government subsidizes the interest during this period of enrollment. Interest charges accrue after the student graduates or drops below half time enrollment; repayment begins six months after the student graduates or drops below half time enrollment.  

Federal Unsubsidized Direct Loans - This loan is not based on financial need. The student is responsible for the interest from the date of disbursement. Interest payments may be made in installments or allowed to accrue and be added to the principal (capitalized). Repayment begins six months after the student graduates or drops below half time enrollment.

Federal Additional Unsubsidized Direct Loans - Available for independent students, or for dependent students whose parents applied and were denied the credit-based Parent PLUS Loan. Parents must be unable, not unwilling, to receive the Federal PLUS Loan. Interest payments may be made in installments or allowed to accrue and be added to the principal (capitalized). Repayment begins six months after the student graduates or drops below half time enrollment.

Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) - Enables parents to borrow the educational expenses for each child who is a dependent undergraduate and is enrolled at least half time. A credit check is required. Parents must meet citizenship requirements and may not be in default or owe a refund to any student financial assistance program. This loan goes into repayment after the second disbursement.

The repayment period for a Direct PLUS Loan begins when the loan is fully disbursed, and the first payment is due 60 days after the final disbursement. However, for Direct PLUS Loans with a first disbursement date on or after July 1, 2008, the parent may defer repayment until 6 months after the student graduates or drops below half time enrollment.

Alternative Loans -Private loans are designed to help students with educational expenses that exceed other available assistance (such as scholarships, grants, PLUS Loans, and Federal Direct Loans).  Alternative loans should be used only after all other forms of aid eligibility have been exhausted.   A credit check is required and a credit worthy co-signer is generally required.  Repayment does not begin until six months after the student is no longer enrolled at least half time; however, interest accumulates during periods of enrollment. For more information, visit Student Financial Services at www.evangel.edu/financial/loans/.


Work Study - To determine if you are eligible for work-study, you must first complete a FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The awarding of Federal Work-Study does not guarantee employment; it merely establishes eligibility. Job opportunities within this program include both on-campus employment and off-campus community service. Students work an average of 8 hours per week. They are paid the federally established minimum wage and may choose to have their work-study earnings automatically deposited into their student accounts. Arrangements for direct deposit must be made through the Payroll Office. Job openings are posted at HireEvangel.com

Campus Employment - Under this program, a limited number of on-campus jobs are available to students. The Payroll Office can provide both eligibility requirements and availability of positions. Most jobs vary in hours per week, and students earn the federally established minimum wage.

Other Employment - The Academic and Career Development Center assists current students and their spouses in locating part-time employment in the Springfield area. Students desiring such employment should have available transportation, although the city does provide a local bus system. The Student Job Service acts as a referral service for local employers seeking part-time employees.

Satisfactory Academic Progress

Evangel University is required by law to establish satisfactory academic progress standards to gauge the progress of students receiving financial assistance through federal, state or institutional aid programs by applying both qualitative and quantitative measurements to academic work. [34 CFS 668.16(e)] These measurements shall be used to determine a student’s eligibility for all federal Title IV aid and for other need-based financial assistance, unless the terms of a particular grant or funding source states otherwise.

General Guidelines
The academic policy at Evangel University is designed to enable students to achieve graduation requirements.  A grade point average of 2.0 is required of all students to graduate.  Academic progress is measured by Qualitative and Quantitative measures.  All students must meet the requirements of both quantitative and qualitative satisfactory academic progress to receive federal aid.

Quantitative Satisfactory Academic Progress - Students must complete 67% of the number of credit hours for which they have enrolled to remain eligible for federal financial aid.  To establish a quantitative measure, a time frame is set for students to finish a program of study.

Maximum Time Frame - Regulations require the maximum time frame to not exceed 150% of the published length of the program (measured in the required academic credit hours).  For example, the length of most undergraduate academic programs is 124 credit hours required for degree completion and may not exceed 186 attempted credit hours (150% of 124 credit hours = 186 maximum attempted hours). 

Qualitative Satisfactory Academic Progress - students who drop below the following minimum cumulative GPA will be placed on Financial Aid Suspension.  (The cumulative GPA includes credits and GPA transferred from other institutions).

GPA requirements for semester hours
Number of Credits Attempted Minimum Cumulative GPA
1 – 29.5 1.5
30 – 44.5 1.7
45 – 59.5 1.9
60+ 2.0

General Adult & Graduate Studies Guidelines

Students whose cumulative GPA drops below the minimum requirement while they are in the graduate program, or who fail to meet standards established by their program in other facets of the curriculum, or who receive three C grades in their coursework, will be placed on SAP suspension. Additionally, the quantitative measure of SAP will be evaluated with the same standard as undergraduate students.

Program Minimum Cumulative GPA
Adult Studies See undergraduate chart above
Graduate Studies 3.0
Seminary – Doctoral 3.0
Seminary – Master of Arts 2.5
Seminary – Master of Divinity 2.0


Attempted Hours – Any course for which the student receives any of the following grades A-F (including plus/minus), P/F, I, W, WP, WF

Hours Not Counted as Attempted – Audited courses

Successfully Completed Hours – All course for which the student receives a passing grade: A-F (including plus/minus), P

Unsuccessfully Completed Hours – All courses for which the student receives any of the following grades: F, I, W, WP, WF

Evaluation Period - A student’s academic progress will be evaluated at the end of each academic year. Academic years for traditional UG students include fall and spring terms. Summer is only included if the student is taking a summer course. Graduate and Professional Studies students will also have SAP evaluated annually at the end of the academic year.

Financial Aid Suspension-If a student fails to meet SAP requirements by the end of the academic year, they will be placed on SAP suspension. Financial aid suspension will result in the loss of all federal and institutional aid. The student does have the option to appeal if they are placed on SAP suspension.

Financial Aid Probation - A student that successfully appeals a financial aid suspension will be placed on financial aid probation and will have their aid eligibility reinstated for the following academic year while also agreeing to an academic plan to assist the student in meeting the SAP requirement. The academic plan will be an agreement established between the student and the Center for Student Success. Successful completion of the academic plan requires the student to meet SAP requirements and meet the graduation requirements of the school.

Re-establishing Academic Progress - A student is removed from financial aid suspension or probation when the student makes up the appropriate grade point and/or credit deficiency during the academic year. This may require the student to attend another college or university to bring up the GPA and meet the necessary hours for progression. If a student who is on suspension successfully completes a term without receiving financial aid and meets the satisfactory academic progress requirements, the student will regain financial aid eligibility for all programs the following payment period except for Direct Loans. Direct Loan eligibility is retroactive to the beginning of the enrollment period.

Repeated Classes - Classes in which the student received a grade of "F" may be repeated in order to earn a higher grade.  For a class to count as a repeated course, the class must be taken both times at Evangel.  In all cases, the grade earned the last time a student takes the course replaces the earlier grade.  The record of the previous grade remains on the transcript, but it does not affect the grade point average.

Withdrawn Classes - Students may withdraw from a class and receive a W with no GPA penalty through the end of week 9 each semester.  During weeks 10 through 14, withdrawal requires either WP (Withdraw Passing, no GPA penalty) or WF (Withdraw Failing, counted as an F for grade calculation).  No withdrawals are accepted during the final examination week.

Incomplete Classes -

An incomplete grade is a temporary grade, assigned at the end of a semester, to permit students additional time to complete work in the course when one or more required assignments are not completed because of illness, accident, death in family, or other satisfactory reason. Incomplete grades do not earn credit or influence the grade point in the semester in which the course is incomplete, however, the course grades are counted once concluded. Incompletes must be completed by the end of the following semester. A student on warning or suspension status may regain eligibility when a grade is posted for the incomplete grade.

Audited Classes - Audited classes receive no credit and do not influence grade point average.  They are not counted in credits attempted and are not eligible for financial aid.

Remedial Classes - Remedial classes will be included in the total number of credits for the semester when determining financial aid eligibility.

Pass/Fail Classes - Pass/Fail classes are not calculated in the cumulative GPA but are included in credits attempted.

Transfer Students - Transfer students are accepted from regionally accredited colleges and universities based on transcripts and satisfactory student records.  Credits may be granted for most standard university courses with grades of C- or higher. Only transferred courses accepted by the courses’ grades (GPA) and completion (y/n) will be used in SAP calculations.  Transfer students who are admitted and do not meet our quantitative and/or qualitative standard will be notified that they are on warning for their first semester.

Change of Major - Changing majors may or may not result in the student meeting qualitative or quantitative measures. Any change of major should be carefully considered and students are encouraged to consult their academic advisor when contemplating a change of major. If the major change is being considered to allow more financial aid funding, the student should check with the Office of Financial Aid before making the change to ensure that the change will result in their regaining or retaining eligibility.

Appeals Procedure - Students who have been placed on suspension from financial aid due to their failure to comply with the academic progress policy have the right to appeal, if suspension is a result of unusual circumstances, such as illness, death in the family, accidents, or other satisfactory reasons. [34 CFR 668.16(e)(5)(6)] Students who wish to appeal must contact their financial aid counselor and provide a letter of appeal. The letter must contain information regarding why the student failed to make satisfactory academic progress, and what has changed in the student’s situation that will allow the student to demonstrate satisfactory academic progress at the next evaluation. Appeals must be received no later than two weeks prior to the beginning of the term in which aid is suspended (summer term excluded). Students will receive written notification of the committee’s decision. If the appeal is denied, students may request a personal hearing with the committee. A successful appeal will result in the student being placed on financial aid probation and the continued eligibility for the payment period. The student may appeal each suspension one time and the decision of the Financial Aid Appeal Committee is final.

Academic Plan Procedures - Students that have successfully appealed their suspension, but will not be able to regain eligibility in one term may have the option to agree to an academic plan. The requirements for the academic plan will be developed and outline in coordination with the Registrar, the Center for Student Success, and in some cases the student’s advisor. The plan will be provided to the student in writing. The Office of Financial Aid will monitor the student’s progress as required by the academic plan. The monitoring will occur, at minimum, at the end of each term.

Amendments to the Policy - This policy will be amended whenever applicable federal or state laws or regulations change.
