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 should contact the Financial Aid Office before attempting to complete registration. Registration is not officially completed until all financial arrangements have been approved.

The university reserves the right to withhold statements of 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.

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. 

  1. 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. Statements are sent on or about the 20th of each month.


All requests for withdrawals must be made on an official add/drop form or online for refunds to be granted. The submittal must be made to the Registrar’s Office by the appropriate day and approved before refund requests are granted. Forms must be submitted on the previous business day if the cut-off day is a non-business workday.

Students with VA Benefits:

  • Any covered individual to attend or participate in the course of education during the period beginning on the date on which the individual provides to the educational institution a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance under chapter 31 or 33 (a “certificate of eligibility” can also include a “Statement of Benefits” obtained from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) website – eBenefits, or a VAF 28-1905 form for chapter 31 authorization purposes) and ending on the earlier of the following dates:
  1. The date on which payment from VA is made to the institution.
  2. 90 days after the date the institution certified tuition and fees following the receipt of the certificate of eligibility.
  • Heritage University will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a covered individual borrows additional funds, on any covered individual because of the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement funding from VA under chapter 31 or 33.
