Pay Your Deposit

After you have been admitted, you will want to submit the $100 non-refundable admissions deposit. Submit the deposit within two weeks of receiving your scholarship notification in order to secure your place at Candler and permit you to enroll for classes. 

You can pay your deposit online via OPUS (in the Admissions sub-section) or with a check or money order made payable to Emory University, sent to:

Candler School of Theology
Attn: Admissions Office
1531 Dickey Drive
Atlanta, GA 30322 

If you are using an international bank, you can use the Western Union Business Solutions payment process located inside of OPUS or make a wire transfer (Finances section drop-down menu.)
