Financial Services

This information is for students studying away from main campus, either living in the USA or abroad.  We reference the fuller Student Financial Services information wherever fitting for all students. One major different to note is that students admitted to online or off-campus programs do not pay the international student deposit or fee. Please check with your financial advisor if unsure about whether a financial policy or process applies to you at a distance.

Students within the United States:
  • Fill in FAFSA (learn more) even if you don't plan to accept loans. You may be eligible for grants - free money.
  • Consider financial aid awarded, as communicated in an award letter. Discuss questions with your financial advisor. Awards can include federal grants and loans, and scholarships. Work with our Veterans Financial Counselor to process military aid. 
  • A payment plan for the balance you owe out of pocket, after all aid and scholarship, must be made to financially clear.
  • Electronic check is the easiest way to pay online; debit or credit card payments are possible with a 2.75% service fee
  • Payment can be made in full or in monthly installments (if completing a degree).
  • Watch a video tutorial on how to use TouchNet to pay your Andrews account
Students outside of the United States:
  • US federal aid is not available. Online courses are discounted for all, so the Andrews Partnership scholarship does not apply to online study,
  • Research local scholarships, and talk with family, employer, and your local church about sponsoring you.
  • Communicate with your financial advisor first to determine the balance you are personally responsible for, after applying any scholarships
  • Then use flywire to make payments by wire transfer. Follow the steps in the flywire video.  
  • Print instructions and arrange with bank within 2 days, or you'll need to start again.
  • Be sure to make the transfer in your country’s currency.  Note that your bank will charge you a fee to send the wire.
  • You can track the wire online. Use contact information in the instructions if you need help. Take action if emailed.
  • Email your financial advisor to alert him/her to a transfer in process near  a deadline.
  • Andrews University degree students registering in January, May, and August can pay 40% of tuition and all fees at registration, with the balance due in three monthly payments. This option will be visible in Registration Central while completing the payment steps. Saving ahead and making payment in full will save on wire fees and worry.
  • Andrews University guest students (including high school students) must pay the total due at the time of registration. 
  • Students taking classes for Washington Adventist University or Oakwood University credit may fill out the Payment Plan Agreement as included in the Consortium Registration Packet to pay 40% of tuition and fees at the time of registration and 60% of tuition over three monthly installment payments.

Read all applicable information through the Student Financial Services webpages before contacting their financial advisor.  Do so early as they are very busy in the week before and after term start dates.  (Find financial advisor contact information here.)

No. US federal financial aid policy requires US residents who study to register into term-based courses.  In compliance, degree students are limited to the term-based self-paced (902) sections and any interactive online (999 usually) sections.  Guest are free to enroll in the open learning (901) sections. Degree students living outside the USA may register anytime they're ready to pay and study, by requesting clearance into the 901 sections from their academic advisor.
