COST OF EDUCATION
Lumbee River Christian College 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.

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. An 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 percent 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.
