CERTIFICATE ENROLLMENT FEE Students pursuing ministry or career certificates are charged for the course of study they are interested in. The fee applies the first semester a student enrolls in the certificate and covers the advising and instruction cost for those studies.
CHANGE OF PROGRAM FEE After completing 60 hours, students who change into a different degree program or ministry major will be assessed this fee to begin their new course of study.
CHANGE OF SCHEDULE FEE Students who add a course, drop a course, or change sections of a course are assessed a flat fee for changing their schedule.
COURSE RETAKE FEE Students who drop or fail a course will be charged an hourly fee when they retake the same course. This charge is applied the second time a course is taken (previously charged on the third attempt.)
GRADUATION FEES When completing a degree, a student is charged for the expenses of a diploma and commencement. With approval, students may be excused from participating in commencement. A diploma fee is charged to students who request a reprinted diploma.
INCOMPLETE REGISTRATION FEE Returning students have until June 1 to complete their schedule, confirm their Residence Hall status, and provide a $200 prepayment either through personal funds, financial aid, or verification from other funding source(s), or else they are assessed the incomplete registration fee. Incoming students have until August 1 to complete required forms and provide their prepayment.
INDEPENDENT STUDY FEE
Students who register for independent studies are charged an hourly rate, unless they do not receive the full-tuition scholarship, in which case they pay tuition.
Students who start the registration process after 3:00 pm on the last day of registration are charged an hourly rate for late registration.
