The tuition rate for a full-time student, a student taking more than 11 credit hours, is $1,400 tuition up to 18 credit hours. The hourly rate of $100 per semester hour will be charged for each credit hour over 18 in addition to the regular tuition fee. On-campus dormitory students are required to take no less than 12 credit hours, unless special permission is granted by the College.

PART-TIME TUITION

Students taking fewer than 12 semester credit hours are considered part-time students and will be charged the rate of $100 per semester hour.

COURSE AUDIT

Courses may be audited for a fee of $20 per credit hour. Audited courses are taken for no credit and no grade is given for the course. Students auditing courses will be subject to normal fees.

DORMITORY FEES

Dormitory fees are $550 per semester. Single students under the age of 25 are required to live in the dormitory unless they are living with someone in their immediate family who is 35 years of age or older. Single students over 30 years of age are not permitted to live in the dorms and are required to find housing within the area. Students staying on campus during the interim or off-semester periods will be assessed a weekly $40 room fee. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are not included in the dormitory fees but are available through the college for approximately $9 a day.

APPLICATION FEE

A $50, non-refundable, application fee must accompany any application for admission to Landmark Baptist College.

REGISTRATION FEE

A non-refundable registration fee of $250 per semester is charged to each full-time student (12-18 undergraduate credits or 9-12 graduate credits). Part-time students will be charged a $100 Registration Fee.

SOUL WINNING MARATHON FEE

All spring semester students are required to participate in our annual Soul Winning Marathon held at a local Baptist church within driving distance of the college. A mandatory Soul Winning Marathon Fee of $115 is due to help defray the expense.

VEHICLE REGISTRATION FEE

A vehicle registration fee of $10 is required for every vehicle that will be parked on campus. Upon payment, a vehicle registration sticker will be issued and must be placed in the bottom left corner of the windshield.

GRADUATION FEE

A $200 graduation fee is required of all graduating seniors. The graduation fee includes the expense of the diploma, diploma cover, purchase of academic regalia, and additional costs associated with the graduation commencement.

SUMMER SESSION

Summer sessions are held on a modular basis consisting of two or three week classes. Tuition for summer classes will be charged at the rate of $100 per semester credit hour. Students choosing to register for the entire summer session are considered full-time students and are required to pay a $125 Registration Fee. Students who are not planning to take the entire summer session are required to pay a $75 part-time registration fee. Students staying in the dormitories will be charged $40 per week. Students staying on campus at any time during the summer must be attending college classes. Students who do not keep their account current will be asked to leave.

LOST KEY FEE

A $25 fee will be charged for any dormitory key that is lost. The fee covers the expense of replacing the necessary doors with new locks.

TRANSPORTATION FEE

Landmark Baptist College does not provide regular transportation to or from Haines City and surrounding areas. If a student is in need of transportation, a $20 fee will be charged to cover fuel and vehicle expenses. This fee would include transportation to and from Orlando International Airport.

MISCELLANEOUS COSTS

The cost of books and school supplies may vary depending upon the course of study, subject, and the number of hours attempted. This cost may range from $100 to $300 per semester. Textbooks are available in the LBC Bookstore. Laundry, personal supplies and incidentals vary dependent on each student.

Terms of Payment


A studentís account must be paid up-to-date before he may take mid-terms or final exams, graduate, and/or receive grades, reports, and/or transcripts. It is understood that these terms are accepted as part of the contract by the student and his parent or guardian when he makes application for admission and is accepted as a student at Landmark Baptist College. Landmark Baptist College costs are subject to change without notice.

Joint Spouse Program


The wife of any full-time student will not be charged tuition to take classes. All normal fees will apply at the full rate. For further details, please contact the Academic Affairs Office.

Withdrawal and Refund Policy


Any student who does not cancel his reservation at least one week before the formal beginning of the semester for which he is enrolled must pay 20% of the full semesterís tuition within thirty (30) days. After a student has enrolled in the college, any action that would cause the student to leave the college before routine completion of the semester (voluntary or involuntary) will be considered a withdrawal.

To withdraw from the college with official approval, a student must have a withdrawal form properly executed by the Dean of Students. A student whose withdrawal is officially approved before the end of the first four weeks of the semester will be refunded fees and tuition according to the following schedule:

During the first week 80%

During the second week 60%

During the third week 40%

During the fourth week 20%

After four weeks No refund

A student is entitled to a full refund of tuition prior to commencement of instruction if the student submits a written request to the college and he never attends class. A dormitory student is required to pay the necessary dormitory fee at a pro-rated amount based on the length of his stay.

Whenever a studentís status is changed to ďwithdrawalĒ and the student owes money to the college, the money is due upon withdrawal. The student will not be allowed to return to LBC until all past bills are paid. No transcripts or other records will be released until all bills are paid.

Should a student leave the college for any reason after having paid more than the amounts outlined above, a refund is made to him for any overpayment. No other refund is made to a student for any other reason. No refunds are issued on a studentís account until after the third week of school has been completed.

All scholarships listed above are only applicable to students who have been accepted for admission and whose fees have been paid.
