Student Accounts

Hope International University provides several payment options for funding your education. Please read through the Financial Options Guide and select that option you choose to utilize.

Payment Plan Options

Students may elect to pay academic expenses through a monthly payment plan through the student portal. A late payment fee of $50 will be charged for each failed payment. Failure to make on time payments may result in alternative payment options for future terms.

Enrollment is not complete, and students may not participate in classes until satisfactory financial arrangements have been made with the Student Accounts Department. Satisfactory financial arrangements involve choosing one of the payment plans detailed in the Financial Options Guide.

Failure to meet payments due to the University could result in being removed from class, dormitory, and cafeteria privileges and suspend ability to take finals and/or receive final grades. Students must have a zero balance on their account by the end of each academic term. Students who select an installment payment plan option agree to make the payments indicated on the signed schedule. If the account is not paid when due, the student will be responsible for all costs incurred by Hope International University to collect the unpaid balance due and owing.

Such costs may include, but are not limited to late fees, collections costs, attorney fees, and court costs.

If you have any questions concerning the financing of your education, please contact Student Accounts at (714) 879-3901 ext. 2202 or email [email protected].
