BUDGETING FOR BIBLE SCHOOL

For many students each year we recognize that finances can be a struggle. The thought of paying for a year of tuition can often be overwhelming! But the Lord remains faithful and loves to draw us to Himself as we learn to rely on Him, especially in this area. While trusting the Lord for His leading and provision, the items below are a few practical things we'd like to highlight or suggest in order to help you plan your finances for Bible School:

1. The full Tuition Fees are considered a charitable donation for income tax purposes in Canada. For most, this amounts to a substantial tax refund in the Spring. This would also be something to tell your church/friends/family who may like to make tuition payments on your behalf.

2. Consider whether your church family may like the opportunity to support you in this way. Many churches are happy to make tuition payments on behalf of a student who wishes to attend Bible School.

3. If you are working currently or plan to work before starting Bible School, consider disciplining yourself to set aside a portion of what you earn each month in order to save. Christmas Break and Spring Break will also provide possible opportunities to work in order to raise finances to put towards tuition fees.

APPLICANTS, PLEASE NOTE:
  • Students are responsible for supplying their own financial support. Scholarships are not available from Capernwray Harbour.

  • All fees MUST be paid in Canadian dollars. Fees are considered a charitable donation for Income Tax purposes in Canada.

  • VISA, VISA Debit, MasterCard, and Amex are accepted.

  • Canada Immigration Officers will require proof of financial support at the Port of Entry into Canada and/or when issuing a student visa for non-Canadians.

  • Capernwray Harbour is not eligible for student loans.
