No student is eligible to register for classes, or receive an official document, such as a diploma or transcript, until all outstanding balances with Hudson Taylor University are current or paid in full. In addition, any student who has an outstanding financial balance will not be recommended for placement until the matter has been resolved.
A nonrefundable application fee is charged to students during each semester of attendance; and a Student Services fee is charged each semester to cover the student’s library usage fee, Student Government Association fee, online and network access, campus use fee, and other administrative costs. An additional technology fee of $100 is assessed each semester.
Students are required to pay their tuition and fees in full before they can register for classes. If they fail to make their payment promptly, a late fee will be assessed.
The following payment options are currently available:
- Cash: Please deliver cash payments in person to the Office of Business Affairs.
- Check: Personal checks or cashier’s checks are accepted. Check should be payable to Hudson Taylor University.

HTU’s refund policy is in compliance with the Amendments to Education Law Section 5002, passed in July 1990 and with the Minimum Standards and Criteria set by GNPEC.
Refunds for Withdrawal from ALL Classes
If a student withdraws from all classes after the first day of the semester, he/she is entitled to a partial tuition refund depending on the percentage of the semester that has passed since the first day of the semester (see “Tuition Refund Schedule,” below).
Refund Approval Contingencies
Students who withdraw before the beginning of a semester or on the first day of the semester will receive a refund of all monies paid, with the exception of the non-refundable application fee. After the first day of a semester, students are liable for
- non-refundable registration fee
- the cost of any textbooks or supplies accepted
- tuition liability as of the student’s last date of attendance at the university (see “Tuition Refund Schedule,” below).
To be eligible for a refund, written notification of withdrawal must be submitted to the Office of Business Affairs. In addition to the stated policy herein, Hudson Taylor University will review a student’s extenuating circumstances (e.g. injury, prolonged illness, death, or other circumstances which prohibit completion of the semester or program of study), and, at its sole discretion, may grant a tuition refund beyond the amount prescribed in this section.
Tuition Refund Schedule
The amount of a tuition refund is determined on a pro-rata basis up to 50% completion of the semester days to the student’s withdrawal date or the last date of attendance by the student, whichever is later. If a student withdraws after completing 50% of the semester, no Tuition Refund shall be given. This Tuition Refund policy applies to full withdrawals only; no partial withdrawals will be applicable to Tuition Refunds. Hudson Taylor University shall pay the refund within thirty days of the date of withdrawal.
Hudson Taylor University may grant scholarships to students based upon their academic records, attendance records, service to the community, and commitment to the welfare of fellow students and Hudson Taylor community. Recipients of scholarships are selected either by a student’s application, or recommendation by the faculty or administration. The Scholarship Committee is comprised of the President, Dean of Academics, Director of Admissions and Dean of Students. The decision to grant a scholarship is made by consensus or unanimous approval of all members of the Committee. The Committee considers four factors in making a scholarship award decision:
- Academic record
- Attendance record
- Service to the community
- Personal attributes or leadership characteristics.
Hudson Taylor University does not currently participate in Title IV funding, nor are there any private endowments that fund scholarships. HTU does not offer hardship- or need-based scholarships. Scholarships are not awarded as cash, but as credit toward tuition. Scholarships are ONLY awarded toward tuition; fees are not included and must be paid by the student. Students may apply for these scholarships in the Office of the Registrar. Violation of the Attendance policy and/or a negative change in Academic standing such as being placed on Warning or Probation status will result in the cancellation of a scholarship. Currently, there are two scholarships available to those who meet the criteria:
- Academic Achievement Scholarship
The recipient must be a full-time student with at least two semesters of academic record at HTU. The student’s overall GPA must be at least 3.75 out of 4.0. A recommendation letter from a faculty member is required. The selection and granting of the scholarship is made each semester and the recipients are awarded $500.00 toward their tuition. No cash award is made.
- President’s Scholarship
The recipient of the President’s Scholarship must exhibit extraordinary commitment to leadership in his or her respective community and must demonstrate selfless dedication to the needs of the Hudson Taylor community, and to society, nation, and world. The application for this Scholarship must be accompanied by a personal essay and recommendation letter from a member of HTU faculty or administration. The selection and granting of the Scholarship is made by the Committee with the final determination of the amount of the grant by the President. It can range from a $500.00 per semester tuition credit to full coverage of all costs of education while attending Hudson Taylor University.
Students who wish to apply for one of the scholarships above may obtain a Scholarship Request Form from the Office of the Registrar.
While HTU does not participate in any federal or state financial aid program, the administration recognizes that students may have questions or concerns regarding their finances and ability to fund their education. HTU therefore maintains a policy of informal financial counseling, and will help students insofar as possible with making financial decisions. Students may contact the Dean of Students for more information.
