Payment Plan Options - Tuition and Fees

Tuition and Fees Payment Due Date

The annual expense of tuition, fees, room and board is due by July 1st. Payment after this date, finalizing financial aid requirements (such as loan application & approval of revised awards) after this date, or completing satisfactory payment arrangements after this date constitute "late" submission of satisfactory financial arrangements and result in a Student Accounts paperwork charge.

Payment Plan Options

Payment in Full - The annual expense of tuition, fees, room and board is due before the start of each semester.

Payment Plan - Monthly installments with balance paid in full by the end of each semester. A late payment fee of $50 will be charged for each failed payment. Enrollment in the plan should be completed before June 1 to avoid having to make substantial back payments of missed months.

Failure to make consistent monthly payments may result in alternative payment options for future terms.

Failure to meet payments due to the University by credit enrollment end date will result in being removed from class, dormitory, and cafeteria privileges and suspended 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. It is the student's responsibility to check their student portal for current account information, Statements are not mailed. 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 cost may include, but are not limited to late fees, collections costs, attorney fees, and court costs.

Tuition Credit for Withdrawal From Undergraduate Classes

Charges upon registration constitute a contract and obligate the registrant for full payment. Because University costs are committed on a yearly basis, the following credit schedule has been established so the University and the student may share the tuition loss equitably if the student withdraws. Fees are generally non-refundable. Students receiving Title IV financial aid who withdraw entirely are subject to a supplemental financial aid prorated refund policy. Please address questions to the Student Financial Aid office.

Tuition credit will be made according to the date of official application for withdrawal on the following table:

Within the first week of the semester - 90% credit
Within the second and third weeks of semester - 60%credit
Within the fourth and fifth weeks of semester - 30% credit
After the fifth week of semester - NO CREDIT

Credit indicated above is percentage of entire contract, not percentage of amounts paid to date of withdrawal.
