IMPORTANT NOTICE: When speaking to an ESI Enrollment Counselor online or over the phone, remember that we do not ask for any of your personal information like Social Security numbers, Bank Account Numbers, etc. We accept all payments online using PayPal secure invoices. We will not be able to see your credit card or debit card information. We simply accept the payment from Paypal, and you will receive a receipt of purchase via email. This invoice will come from our parent corporation Haven International, which is a legally recognized 501c3 spiritual non-profit organization.
Other Costs to Consider
A few other items may be necessary to fulfill your course requirements. Please note for each course we will provide a supplies list with estimated cost as part of the enrollment process. We are very mindful of added costs incurred by our students. For example, we do our best to only require 1-2 main textbooks per course, and many of our faculty share articles, chapters of books, and other course materials free of charge to our students. Because all our courses are 100% online, it is very important for students to own or have access to a dependable, easily accessible computer. If this is an issue for any student, please contact us so we can help you find a location near you such as a library or community center. Please consult your syllabus for any additional items you might need to purchase. Sample list below:
- Textbooks, Ebooks, other assigned texts or DVDs.
- A reliable, high-speed Internet connection
- Computer software (e.g., Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
- Basic office setup (e.g., desk, chair, office supplies)
- Online Cloud to store your documents safely even if you have a computer crash
- Back-up external hard drive/flash drive
- Study resources (e.g., APA manual, dictionary)
Two-Step Payment Plan
We currently offer a two-step payment plan for those students who wish to separate their payments. This means that we take your total course costs, split it in half and invoice you when you first enroll in courses and again a few weeks after you have attended your course.
Fall Term First Invoice: TBD
Fall Term Second Invoice: TBD
Students must make their first payment shortly after their invoice is sent on both occasions or will be dropped from their course(s). If for some reason you are having trouble making a payment please speak to your enrollment counselor or contact us before any drop dates.
- You may receive a refund. (Registration Fees are non-refundable.)
- You may choose to have ESI hold your tuition and credit it toward a course offered during a future academic session.
- You may choose to apply the tuition toward a different course that is currently offered.
At ESI, we understand that events in life come up that are unforeseen and we will do our best to accommodate you as problems arise. However, we can only offer our students a refund if they drop their course before the third week and even then we will only be able to offer a partial refund based on how long you have been in the course. There are also fees that will be non-refundable no matter the circumstances such as the Registration Fee and Technology Fee. These will never be able to be refunded.
