1. REVIEW OUR ACADEMIC CALENDAR

Mark the Tuition Payment Deadline of DECEMBER 18th, 2023 on your calendar.

  • Students are responsible for paying tuition less any anticipated financial aid, scholarships, loans, military benefits, discounts, or other aid and benefits in full by the tuition due date, or be enrolled in a payment plan before this date.

2. SEE A SAMPLE EBILL

REVIEW YOUR FIRST EBILL STATEMENT IN EARLY December

  • Beginning in early December, HPU will create eBill Statements for you at least once a month and will send an email letting you know your eBill Statement is ready (to your my.hpu.edu email). Learn more about your eBill Statement here.

3. CONSIDER A PAYMENT PLAN

IS A PAYMENT PLAN RIGHT FOR YOU?

Enrolling in a monthly payment plan gives you the ability to conveniently distribute your portion of tuition and fees across manageable monthly installments. Payment plans also help you avoid high interest rates normally seen with traditional loans.

The cost to you is a small, non-refundable enrollment fee of $65 (Fall or Spring terms) and $35 (Summer term) for each term you wish to enroll in a payment plan.

Enrollment opens the first week of December, after charges post and after you have received your first eBill Statement.

[1] A tuition adjustment means that a tuition charge is reversed (or credited) to the student’s account, resulting in a smaller overall amount owed to the University. Students are liable for all course fees. Refunds will be issued automatically if the account balance overall is negative. For eligible students, refund processing time is 4-6 weeks from the drop date.
