Hartland College is a division of Hartland Institute, which is a nonprofit corporation owned, operated, and staffed by Seventh-day Adventist lay persons. It is not funded or otherwise supported by any other organization or institution. The capital costs of the institute are derived from gifts, grants, and income generated by various phases of the institute’s programs. Operating costs directly related to the college are borne by student tuition fees, and every attempt is made to keep them at the lowest amount consistent with a quality education.
Hartland College does not participate in any government scholarship or grant programs, nor does it intend to become involved in securing or receiving direct or indirect financial aid from federal, state, or other government sources. The college may occasionally have funding support from private sources available to assist students with their fees. Such assistance is awarded on the basis of academics, need, worthiness, and commitment to specific service requirements. The individual who is persuaded that God is calling him to become a student at Hartland College must participate with the college in discovering the resources which God will provide to enable him to respond to that call.
Applicants who believe they may need some financial assistance should contact the director of Admissions as soon as possible for information regarding the details of the financial options available. Some of our current programs are:
The best option for studying at Hartland is if the student or a sponsor can cover the tuition, room, and board charges. This allows the student to devote his/her time to his/her studies and vocational training, thus maximizing the benefit received from the program. It also frees the student from worrying about a debt that needs to be repaid or putting in extra work hours, which could compromise the learning experience. This also allows the student to graduate in the regular amount of time (generally four years for the standard program) and frees up the breaks for mission trips or other activities. Payment plans can also be set up with the student finance officer.
50% Scholarship Program
For those who are under financial constraints and are unable to find a sponsor for the full amount, but would like to complete within the standard amount of time, the 50% Scholarship Program could be an option. Under this program, the student agrees to work in either canvassing or vocational training during all of the breaks. Then the student could pay 50% of the total cost of tuition, room, and board and with the work/canvassing credit during the breaks would still be able to graduate in the regular amount of time.
Vocational Training Scholarship Program
Those who do not have the funds for the 50% Scholarship Program can apply for the Vocational Training Scholarship Program. This is for those who have no financial resources at their disposal, but still desire to be trained as missionaries. Those in this program are required to work during all the breaks and through building up work credit they would be able to take discounted classes. Because of the work schedule, it would take two to four years longer to graduate with a regular course of studies. There are also some courses that are not offered to a vocational training scholarship student. Because of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) regulations, the Vocational Training Scholarship Program is not available to students who are studying in the United States on a student (F-1) visa during their first year.
Missionary Training Fund Loan
The Missionary Training Fund Loan is for those who are willing to commit themselves to working in a mission field or unentered territory and desire to be trained in their field of study. To qualify for the limited number of loans offered, one must apply and be accepted into this loan program and then work during all the breaks. The recipient is then required to work in the mission field a number of years equal to the years he/she studied in order for the loan to be canceled. If plans change and the student decides to pursue further studies or stay in the United States, then the entire loan amount must be repaid.
