When looking at which college to attend, you should be sure you are making a wise investment. At Kuyper College, we place a special emphasis on making a high-quality Christian college education as affordable as possible. This keeps our tuition costs significantly lower than many other Christian colleges. This affordable education, combined with an education that is focused on preparing Christian leaders to make a difference, makes Kuyper an exceptional value.

While your financial aid is packaged for the year, it is split by semester and you are billed on a semester basis as detailed in the costs below.
Your balance is due in full for the Fall Semester by August 25 and for the Winter Semester by January 1.
If you opt for the payment plan through TMS, our new Tuition Payment System vendor, charges students $25 per semester to administer a payment plan. Students have option to pay balance with electronic debits (without transaction fees) or by credit card (with fees).
There is a payment plan fee of $25 per semester.
Plans should include out-of-pocket tuition, registration, technology, lab, room and board, and graduation fees.
Instructions for electronic payments will be emailed to each student after registration is finalized.
Our new tuition payment system affords us to provide the opportunity of multiple plans for payment as well as a "parent portal". Students, through an electronic Family Educational Right and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) form, may convey permission to share information such as class schedule, grades and student account information to other such as parents, spouses, churches, or other entities providing support through the "parent portal".
