California law requires that, upon enrollment, a fee be assessed in relation to the cost of tuition (Education Code Section 94343). These fees support the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) a special fund established by California Legislature to reimburse students who might otherwise experience a financial loss as a result of untimely school closure. Institutional participation is mandatory.

It is important that students keep a copy of any enrollment, agreement, contract, or application to document enrollment. Copies of tuition receipts of canceled checks to document the total amount of tuition paid should also be kept, as well as records that will show the percentage of the course that has been completed. Such records would substantiate a claim for reimbursement from the STRF, which must be filed within 60 days following school closure. For further information or instruction, contact:

At Haven University every effort is made to maintain student school expenses at a moderate level. However, tuition, fees, and other expenses are subject to change without notice. By appointment, payment may be made in person during the hours of 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday. Most of our students, make payment via their Populi Student Portal. Tuition and fees are due during the registration period for each semester and winter/summer intensive sessions. 



Financial Aid | Haven University  does currently participate in financial aid under Title IV [Contact Administration for Details]. Haven University does not offer or administer institutionally funded grants and loans to pay for the cost of an educational program. Loans obtained from outside sources are not under the purview of the Haven University 's responsibility and/or authority. Financial Aid, for our students, is sometimes donated by private individuals and local churches in the area. However, if a student obtains a loan from a private source, e.g., bank, credit union, loan company, the student has the personal responsibility to repay the full amount of the loan plus any interest that has accrued, less the amount of any refund. 

Haven University does offer a scholarship for students in good academic standing (minimum 3.5 semester GPA), and/or missionaries on furlough, and/or missionary candidate, and/or their family.

Delayed Payment Plan | Students unable to make full payment at the time of registration may elect to pay under the Delayed Payment Plan. A $25.00 handling fee is assessed for this plan. This plan breaks the tuition into three payments: the first one-third payment is due at the time of registration together with the $25.00 handling fee; the second one-third payment is due by the end of the 4th Week of the semester; and the third and final payment must be made by the end of the 8th Week of the semester. Failure to make either the second or third payment on time will result in an additional $25.00 handling fee. All account balances must be cleared by the time of final examinations.
