Tuition & Costs

TUITION & COSTS

The University of Valley Forge (UVF) is deliberate in keeping its costs down, developing on-campus jobs, and providing institutional monies to help cover the cost of a quality education. We want all students who are called to join our Christ-centered community to have the chance to study and grow with us.

 

Books are estimated at $350 per semester and you assume the responsibility for all book fees incurred. However, access to databases and journal articles are included in the tuition for the courses. Students may use any surplus of financial aid on their student account to purchase books.

How Financial Aid Awards are Applied to University Costs

The financial aid awards listed on the award letter will be applied directly to the student account at the University of Valley Forge. They are usually applied during the first 45 days of each term, provided you have submitted all information and forms needed to process financial aid to the Financial Services Office at least 30 days prior to the beginning of the semester. You will be sent an invoice from the University prior to the beginning of the semester. Any excess aid left after institutional charges are paid will be issued to the student or held on the student’s account, with student authorization.

 

Generally, the Financial Services Office will bill you for the fall semester in July with the payment due on or before check-in. You are billed for the spring semester in December and the first payment is due prior to, or at, check-in. You receive a billing statement each month. Any financial aid (including Direct or PLUS loans) confirmed at the time of billing will be reflected on your bill.

Return of Title IV Funds

If you are a recipient of Federal financial aid, the Department of Education requires a Federal calculation to be used to determine refund amounts to be paid back to the financial aid programs and to you.

 

The amount of Title IV funds earned is computed by taking the number of calendar days completed divided by the calendar days in the semester. If the resulting percentage is 60% or more, then 100% of the funds are deemed to have been earned and no return of Title IV funds is required. If the resulting percentage is less than 60%, then the percentage is subtracted from 100% and multiplied by the Title IV funds received. (i.e., 40 days completed divided by 100 days in the term equals 40%. Forty percent from 100% requires 60% of the Title IV aid to be returned.)
