Payment of Accounts

Students must pay tuition online through the convenient and secure payment system available on Populi, our learning management system. A link is provided on the Populi system as part of your admission process. Tuition must be paid in full within the first 15 days of class unless special financial arrangements have been agreed upon with CCU staff.

Tuition Refund Policy

  • 100% of tuition may be credited if the course is dropped before or on the add/drop deadline, 7 days after the course starts via the Withdrawal Form.
  • 50% of tuition may be credited towards your next course for the second through the third week of the courses.
  • All fees are non-refundable (including Application fee).
  • Refunds are assessed from the date a student submits a Withdrawal Form to the Admissions Office, not from the date they stop participating in course(s). The Withdrawal Form is available on the CCU website or from the Admissions Office.

Institutional Financial Aid

To apply for institutional financial aid, use the online Financial Aid form. Financial assistance will be considered after your approval for admission and a completed financial aid form has been submitted.

Please note: Calvary Chapel University does not offer student federal financial aid supported programs through Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 at this time.
