Tuition and Fees


At Heritage University, the development of a strong sense of financial responsibility is considered an integral part of a basic education that prepares the student to be a responsible citizen of the world community.

Students requiring financial assistance from the university must contact the Financial Aid Office before attempting to complete registration. Financial aid arrangements should be made at least three months before the first registration to ensure timely credit to the student’s account. Registration is not officially completed until all financial arrangements have been approved.

The university reserves the right to withhold statements of honorable dismissal, transcripts, records, and diplomas and to deny registration, until all university charges have been paid and the student’s account is cleared. Further, the university reserves similar rights if any student loan account (including NDSL, Direct Loans, and Perkins Loans) is in past-due or delinquent status.

Tuition and fee rates are approved by the Board of Directors. The university reserves the right to change the fee schedule and tuition rates for a given term, without prior notice.

Payment

All charges are due and payable at the time of registration; however, tuition payment plans log on to your myheritage account at myheritage.heritage.edu/Students/Student Accounts/Pay Online. The university reserves the right to deny students permission to register for another semester if any part of the account for the preceding semester(s) remains unpaid. Seniors must clear accounts one month prior to their graduation date.

  1. The nonrefundable, one-time registration fee is due at the time of registration. All non-tuition fees, such as laboratory fees, are paid at registration unless financial aid has been awarded and/or a payment plan has been established. 
  2. If financial aid has been awarded, a copy of the award letter must be attached to the registration.
  3. Statements are sent on or about the 20th of each month.
