Tuition and Fees

2022-2023 Tuition and Fee Rates

While college costs have skyrocketed across the U.S., our aim is to keep CCBC affordable and accessible to students. Our philosophy is to train up men and women in God’s word and see them complete their Bible College program free from any school debt, ready to serve and represent Jesus Christ wherever His Spirit calls them.

Calvary Chapel Bible College does not currently participate in government-funded financial aid programs or guaranteed student loans.

Withdrawal Policy

Students desiring to withdraw from one or more course(s) are responsible to complete a Course Withdrawal Form and submit it to the Registrar or Online Learning Coordinator. If a student withdraws from a course or school for any reason after the Withdrawal Deadline (see the Academic Calendar) he/she will receive an Unofficial Withdrawal (UW) for the semester. This calculates as an “F”, affecting the student’s grade point average. Withdrawals prior to the withdrawal deadline, or due to illness or emergencies as approved by the Registrar will result in an Official Withdrawal (W) which will not affect the student’s grade point average.

Refund Policy

Refunds are assessed from the date a student submits a withdrawal request form to the Registrar or Online Learning Coordinator, not from the date they stop participating in a class.
Refunds are only by check and may take two – three weeks to process.
Refund Schedule:
All refund percentages are calculated based on tuition cost. There are no refunds for administrative fees. Withdrawal Refunded amount:
Prior to start of class, 90% of Tuition
By end of second week, 70% of Tuition
By end of third week, 60% of Tuition
By end of fourth week, 50% of Tuition
By end of fifth week, 40% of Tuition
There are no refunds given after the 5th week. If a student drops or withdraws from a course, or school during this time they are still liable for the entire cost of tuition. 

Tuition Assistance

CCBC trains students from many different denominations and churches. While our main approach is to offer one low cost of attendance for all students, some financial aid is available on a limited basis for those who demonstrate a need. Additionally, you may be eligible for a Calvary Chapel Pastor & Missionary Scholarship if you or your parent is a full-time pastor, ministry leader, or missionary in a Calvary Chapel ministry.
