***It is estimated that it will cost about $13,100 USD to graduate from HGU. This is based on $2,620 per semester and four semesters to graduate not including the various fees and books. $2,620 X 4 = $10,620 plus fees and books ~ $13,100. Additionally this does not include housing, food, transportation and miscellaneous personal expenses, which will be additional. Because of all the variables, HGU does not take payment in full for all the courses all at once. Students are to pay for their program each semester.
Classes frequently fill up very fast. If a student has not paid his/her fees and there are other students on the waiting list for a course, the student will be dropped from the course and priority will be given to students who pay their fees.
Notice: All students must pay the university the applicable costs associated with school attendance (i.e., semester tuition, other required fees) at the time of registration, unless the student and university agree in writing to a tuition payment plan. Students whose accounts are more than seven days past due are automatically dropped from classes. Students who fail to fulfill the financial arrangements agreed upon are suspended from the university and may reenter only upon full payment of the delinquent portion of their account plus fees/fine unless the University has agreed in writing to a different payment arrangement. No grades or documents will be released if there is an outstanding balance. The University may refuse any type of service to students who have an outstanding balance. A monthly $50 late fee will be charged to the student until his/her financial obligation is fulfilled. The University may also refuse re-admission to a student who has left the University with an outstanding balance.
