COST OF EDUCATION
NABC makes every effort to keep educational costs to students as low as possible. Student tuition and fees pay only a portion of the college’s operating expenses each year. Supporting districts, churches, and individuals subsidize the operating budget of the college. This represents a sizable investment in every student’s education. While the college depends largely on outside financial support, some educational costs must be met by students.
The NABC school year is comprised of two semesters. Per semester costs are as follows:
Tuition (12 credit hours and over) $1848.00
Tuition per credit hour-less than 12 hrs. 154.00
Audit fee per semester hour 40.00
Room (Private—Limited Availability) 1,200.00

An adjustment will be made to the student’s account when the student withdraws from the college with the proper approval. The student must complete an Official Withdrawal Form, available at the Registrar’s Office, at the time he/she is leaving the college. Refunds are effective as of the date of the withdrawal form.
1. Room and board charges will be prorated from the date of registration to the date of withdrawal/vacating the dormitory.
2. Tuition refunds are based on the total tuition for the semester and will be refunded according to the following percentages:
1st and 2nd week of classes 100%
3rd week of classes 75%
4th week of classes 50%
5th week of classes 25%
After 5th week of classes No adjustments
PAYMENT OF ACCOUNTS
Financial responsibility is important to a Christian’s Testimony. Each student is responsible to make adequate arrangements for this obligation. Any outstanding balance from previous semesters must be paid in full before a student will be allowed to return to classes. Any exception must be made by the Vice President for Business Affairs.
All school bills must be paid in full before students can receive official credit for work completed during the semester. Official transcript will not be issued until the school bill is paid in full.
Books, registration, and one third of tuition fees must be paid at the time of enrollment. On-campus students must pay fifty per cent of their room and board fees at the time of enrollment. The balance of all fees must be paid in three equal installments on the 20th of January, February, and March for the spring semester and September, October, and November for the fall semester. Summer sessions are to be paid in full at registration. The Vice-President for Business Affairs or the President must approve any other arrangements.
NABC is in the process of applying for Title IV funding at this time; a limited amount of other financial aid is available. Qualifying students may apply for Veterans Administration benefits and various scholarships. Applying for financial aid does not automatically guarantee assistance. A student desiring financial aid should submit an application in the semester prior to the one in which the assistance is needed. Application for financial aid should be made to the Business Affairs Office.

Any student who is responsible for one or more new students (i.e. one(s) who has/have never attended the college before) enrolling in a given semester will be given a $25.00 discount on his/her tuition.
If a husband and wife both attend the college, the one with the greater number of credit hours will pay full tuition. The spouse will receive a 50% discount on tuition.
Individuals who qualify for veterans (VA) benefits should contact their local VA Office for more information and complete the application process required of all potential students. The VA representative at Native American Bible College will certify enrollment for those who are eligible for VA benefits. If a VA student is terminated from the college for any reason, notification is made to the Department of Veterans Affairs and the student’s VA benefits will be subsequently terminated.
The following Student Record Procedures policy will be applicable to persons enrolled under provisions of Title 38, US Code.
1. NABC keeps Records of Progress on all students, veteran and non-veteran alike.
2. Grade reports are furnished to all students at the end of each scheduled school term.

The following refund policy will be applicable to persons enrolled under provisions of Title 38 US code.

The charges to the eligible person for tuition, fees, and other charges will not exceed the approximate pro rata portion of the tuition, fees, and other charges that the length of the completed portion of the course bears to the total length of the course.
