  8. There is an 'inactive' fee of $50/month for students who remain enrolled in Newlife School.
  9. Tuition payments are not tax deductible according to the IRS Tax Code due to the designation of funds to specific student accounts by the payee. Please see IRS Publication 526 for more info.
  10. Our Financial Aid program is not considered a Qualified Tuition program and our students do not participate in a Federally funded financial aid program administered by the US Dept. of Education. Therefore, we are not obligated to issue a Form 1098T as guided by IRS Publication 970.
  11. Plane tickets range in price from $700 - $1500 RT depending on point of origin and dates of travel.
  12. Students are required to apply for a 9g missionary visa upon arrival from Philippine Dept. of Immigration. Fees are not consistent due to multiple variables. Approximate cost is $800 for a two year visa. Newlife School cannot be held responsible for actual Philippine Immigration costs incurred by students that may exceed the estimate listed above due to constantly changing fees and policies.
