Refund Policy

For the normal fall and spring semesters (classes meet weekly): 100% if withdrawing before classes start; 75% if withdraw after the first day the class meets; 50% if withdrawing after the second class meeting, and 25% if withdraw after the third class meeting. There is no refund after the fourth class meeting.

For Saturday (bi-weekly meetings or accelerated weekly/double sessions) fall, spring or summer semesters: 100% if withdrawing before classes start; 50% if withdraw after the first time the class meets (Sessions 1 and 2). There is no refund after the second time the class meets as it represents (Sessions 3 and 4).

The above refund schedules are in force whether the student actually attends the classes or not. Notifying the school of intention to withdraw is the student’s responsibility. The Office of the Academic Dean reserves the right to over-ride the above refund policy to accommodate special circumstances of an extreme nature.

Note that because we are a non-profit school providing a Biblical education, some students who withdraw and are entitled to receive a refund, choose to offer their refund to the school as a tax-deductible donation. We are always appreciative of such decisions, but they are never expected nor required.


Undergraduates can apply for the Carson Riley or In-Kind scholarships to receive financial aid.

Ambassador Scholarship 

This scholarship is available to hand-selected student body members. It can be used by the individual or passed on to a family or church family member. 

Veterans of the U.S. Armed Services

Students who have served in the U.S. military are eligible under the Post-9/11 GI bill to receive funds for their education. 


**In accordance with section 3679 (e), students who are eligible for veteran’s benefits but whose disbursements are delayed are NOT charged late fees. They will neither be prohibited from attending classes or using school resources nor will they be required to borrow funds as their benefits are pending. Students are, however, required to produce the VA Certificate of eligibility on or before the first day of class. 

***Veterans have a separate refund policy. Veterans receiving benefits must contact the registrar for a copy of the refund policy.
