Tuition is due in full on the first day of the quarter. A student unable to make payment in full may be permitted to enter into a Payment Plan. A minimum tuition deposit of $100 per course plus a $25 special processing fee is due the first day of the quarter. The balance is due within 60 days. A signed Payment Arrangements form is required. Accounts left unpaid after 60 days will be assessed an additional $25 late payment fee and will be referred to a collection agency.

Heritage Center for Religious Studies views payment plans as covenant agreements. Unless other arrangements have been made in advance with the Heritage Center Administration, a student who becomes delinquent in meeting their financial obligations may be ineligible for future payment plans. In this case, the student will be notified in writing and all future fees are due in full on the first day of the quarter.

Heritage Center for Religious Studies has a limited budget and depends solely upon tuition payments to maintain operations. As a result, good stewardship concerning tuition payments on behalf of students is vital to our continued existence. Therefore, every effort should be made to offer flexible payment plans to students who may be experiencing financial difficulties.

Cash payments are accepted only at the school office.

Checks and money orders should be made payable to Heritage Center. A $35 processing fee will be charged for all checks returned for insufficient funds.

Credit Cards - all major credit cards are accepted.

Third party payments (e.g., church, employer, etc.) must be received no later than the first day of the term. If we do not receive payment in full by the first day of the term, the student will be responsible for paying the total amount due. If the third party submits payment after the conclusion of the term, tuition payments made by the student will be refunded.
