Textbooks

Students purchase their own textbooks, and costs vary depending on the number of credit hours taken. Students enrolled full-time can generally expect the cost of textbooks to vary from $150-$200 depending on the condition of texts purchased. Most students purchase textbooks online or through our College bookstore on campus.

Financial Considerations & Payment Options

Heartland Christian College does not accept federal funding to help defray education costs. The College is, however, committed to providing a cost-effective education in an effort to help students to graduate without having incurred education-related debt at this institution.

In order to encourage good stewardship and to prevent students from becoming ensnared in heavy debt, all fees and costs for residential living are expected to be paid in a timely manner.

Students may choose from the following payment options:

  • Option 1: Full payment for all semester costs is paid by Registration day of each enrollment period.
  • Option 2: At least a $400 payment for enrollment period costs is paid by Registration day of each enrollment period, and the remaining balance is paid through monthly payments made over the course of the enrollment period. Payment dates are announced prior to each semester.

Monthly payments are assessed a late fee of $5/month beginning 10 days after the payment due date, with a late fee cap of $25.

Students may make payments in the following ways:

  • In person at the HCC financial office with a check, cash, or credit debit card
  • Online via this link: Make A Payment

Each traditional student is assigned to a Shepherd Group Leader who works with them on a regular basis to make sure financial stewardship is being learned and practiced.
