Frequently Asked Questions about DTS
1. Can my donors receive a tax-deductible receipt?
Money that is paid for school fees is NOT tax-deductible.
If a supporter wants a tax-deduction, ask your pastor if your supporter can donate through your home church.
2. When are lecture fees due?
i) The lecture fee should be paid in full by Registration Day/Arrival Day
ii) All payments must be made in USD funds by cash, check, money order, Visa or Master Card.
iii) If the total fee is not paid at registration – within the first week of school – (including those on an approved Deferred Payment Plan), a service charge of $75 per student will be added to the unpaid balance and must be paid in full by week 4.
iv) All personal expenses incurred while involved with Gleanings For The Hungry are the responsibility of the student (such as medical costs, food away from campus and mail). It is a good idea to bring some spending money for things such as snacks or personal items.
3. How do I send a check or money order to pay my fees?
Your check or money order must be drawn on a U.S. Bank, or an international affiliate of a U.S. Bank, in USD funds with U.S.computer coding on the bottom of the check. (Canadian checks need to have the computer coding on the bottom of the check but do not need to be drawn on a U.S. Bank).
4. Do I need to purchase health insurance?
Health insurance is mandatory! All students attending Gleanings For The Hungry, and family members accompanying them, are required to have health insurance.
5. What is your refund policy?
It is expected that when students enroll, they will continue through the entire course. However, in cases of termination or withdrawal from the program due to an emergency or for disciplinary reasons, any refund will be at the discretion of the training department on the following basis:
During the first week: 90% refund……….$2520.00
During the second week: 60% refund……….$1680.00
During the third week: 40% refund……….$1120.00
