Explanation of Costs/Fees

See the University Catalog for a complete list and description of all fees.


Tuition provides partial funding for instructional and institutional expenses. It is due prior to the start of classes. Only courses for which the student has registered and for which the tuition fee has been paid may be attended.

Student Services Fee

Provides partial funding for non-instructional functions such as registration, compliance with Department of Education and accrediting agency regulations and policies,fine arts series performances, library use, chapel, lecture series, security, class dues, social funds, intramural sports/athletics, admission to on-campus intercollegiate athletic events, ID cards, and mail service.  (Charged for both credit and audit hours).

Dorm Room and Key Deposit (Refundable)

Due upon acceptance as a student. Your deposit reserves a room and is retained as long as you reside in the dorm. Your deposit will be refunded provided the room is left clean and in good repair, and you owe no other outstanding balances to Calvary.

Enrollment Fee

Required of all new and re-enrolling applicants. This includes all degree-seeking and non-degree-seeking students, including Early College students. Calvary University graduates who continue toward an advanced degree the next semester are not required to pay the enrollment fee.

Orientation Fee
