Frequently Asked Questions
How do I pay my $50 application fee?
On the payment page, you can pay your application fee by debit/credit card or check (note that electronic checks must be from US bank accounts only). You are not required to open a PayPal account. If you are paying by check, make the check payable to Andover Newton Theological School and mail to 210 Herrick Road, Newton Centre, MA 02459
Note: Once payment is authorized, your application is final, and you can no longer make changes to it.
How secure is my payment transaction?
Your debit/credit card information is encrypted during transmission from your browser to our server and during payment authorization. None of your debit/credit card information is stored in our database.
How do I submit my application if my fee has been waived?
If you have received a fee waiver, check the appropriate box on the form when asked and upload a copy of the waiver document. If the fee was waived automatically by the school, you won't even be asked for payment, and can simply submit your application. Finally, if you submit your form with a fee waiver request, the school will review your request and let you know whether they accepted or denied it, and you'll receive a message letting you know either way. If your request was denied, you'll need to submit payment before your application is officially accepted.
Is all my application data secure?
The information you enter is encrypted and secure when you save it and when you send it. Although general data collected on the system may be used in statistical studies and reports designed to assist institutions with planning, any information bearing your personal identification is disclosed only to the department to which you send it.
How do I know if my application was received?
You will receive an email acknowledging that you have submitted as soon as your online application is processed. You should also receive a communication from the school within two weeks listing any documents still required to complete your application, such as letters of recommendation or college transcripts.
Is my account private?
Yes, the server stores all information you enter under the private username and password you establish.
