Late fees of $50 will be assessed on any student accounts which are not paid in full by the start of classes.

All accounts must be paid or arrangements must be in place for payment by two weeks after the start of classes (Master’s & Certificate), four weeks after the start of classes (PhD or DMin), or students will lose access to the system and online resources in the Carroll Learning Center. Contact the Bursar’s Office at to make payment arrangements.

Student accounts must be cleared in order to access registration for the following term.

The Ph.D. program at B. H. Carroll Theological Seminary has continually exceeded my expectations. Its combination of affordability, flexibility (both regarding remote learning and the subjects students can study), and quality is unique and unmatched.

Where finances and time constraints were obstacles, BH Carroll’s affordability and accessibility have cleared the way for me to pursue my Ph.D. in counseling.
