***TUITION AND FEES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE***

Payments

All tuition and fees must be paid or satisfactory payment arrangements made for the full balance by the published payment deadline for each semester.  Published payment deadlines are always prior to the beginning of the semester.    Students may use a combination of payment options, but must ensure the full amount of tuition and fees are covered by the deadline to avoid being de-registered for non-payment.  

Forms of Payment

Acceptable forms of payment are cash, check, money order, and credit card.  All checks and money orders should include the student’s name and ID number.  Credit card payments may be made online through Web Services or in person at the Bursar’s Office.  Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover are accepted.    

If a check is returned by the bank for any reason or a valid credit card payment is disputed, the following may result:

  • A handling charge will be assessed to the student’s account
  • The student may be de-registered and tuition and fee charges reassessed according to the refund policy in effect on the date notification was received.
  • Future payments must be made with guaranteed funds such as money order or cashier’s check.

Satisfactory Payment Arrangements 

Satisfactory payment arrangements include the NelNet (FACTS) monthly payment plan, state and federal financial aid, school-certified private loans, veterans benefits paid directly to the College, and certain other arrangements made through the Bursar’s Office.

  • NelNet Monthly Payment Plan – This option allows students or parents to divide the student’s balance into monthly installments to be paid throughout the semester.  No interest is charged because the plan is not a loan, however, an enrollment fee of $30 is charged. More information regarding the payment plan can be found on the College Website in the Bursar section.  
  • State and Federal Aid – State and federal aid that has been awarded, and accepted by the student if necessary (as in the case of loans), is considered a satisfactory payment agreement for the total amount awarded. State and federal aid includes TOPS, Go Grant, Pell and SEOG grants, and Stafford and PLUS loans.  Aid must be awarded and accepted at the time of the payment deadline.  If revisions are made to awarded aid that result in a balance on a student’s account, the student is responsible for making payment arrangements. 

Past- due Balances

A past-due balance is any balance that exists on a student account after the published payment deadline for which no payment has been received and no payment arrangement has been made.  Once the payment deadline for a semester has passed, balances become due immediately.   

After the published payment deadline each semester, a purge process is completed to de-register students with past-due balances.  Additionally, the College reserves the right to discontinue services to students with past-due balances including but not limited to transcripts, student grades, diplomas, registration, and enrollment in payment plans. Past-due balances may also be turned over to a collection agency.  This policy is administered by the Bursar’s Office and is applicable to any past-due balance on a student account. 

Tuition and Fee Refund Policy

When a student officially drops courses, withdraws from courses, or resigns from the College, his/her account will be credited with a refund of tuition and fees charged for the courses based on the following refund policy.  Students must follow College procedures and adhere to published deadlines when dropping, withdrawing, or resigning.  If a student is de-registered by the College for any reason, the College reserves the right to refund the student according to this schedule using the effective date of de-registration to determine the percentage refunded.

100% Tuition through 1st week                                               100% Fees through last day to add classes
75% Tuition through 2nd week                                                   0% Fees after last day to add classes
50% Tuition through 3rd week
25% Tuition through 4th week
0% Tuition after 4th week

Please note refund percentages are not based on the number of class meetings or whether the student has attended class.

Special note to financial aid recipients regarding resignation:  Per federal regulation, the College must determine the amount of federal financial aid to be returned to the federal programs for students who withdraw after receiving federal financial aid.  This includes students who officially resign and students who are determined to have unofficially resigned.  Students considering withdrawal/resignation should contact the Office of Financial Aid to determine any potential effects on aid already received for the semester.  If the return of un-earned aid results in a balance on a student’s account, the student is responsible for paying that balance to the College.  Unpaid balances are subject to the policies detailed in the past-due balances section. 

Issuance of Financial Aid Refunds and Overpayments

Credit balances are generated on student accounts when a student receives aid in excess of his/her charges, an overpayment is made, or credits are applied after the balance has been paid in full. In these cases a refund to the student (or the parent in some cases with a Parent PLUS loan) will be generated.  Funds must be received and applied to a student’s account, and the full account balance paid before a refund is generated.  It is College policy that refunds are not advanced based on anticipated aid. Refunds are mailed to the student’s address on file in the Registrar’s Office, therefore students should ensure that their mailing address is kept current.  Generally students should allow 1-2 weeks from the date a credit balance is generated on their account to receive a refund check.  Because different types of aid are posted at various times throughout a semester, a student may receive multiple refund checks in the same semester.

Book and Uniform Vouchers

A voucher is a credit authorized by the Bursar's Office that a student may use to purchase required course materials including books, uniforms, and/or skills packs.  Many students depend on their financial aid refund to purchase these items, but those refunds are not issued until after the semester has begun.  Vouchers provide students with a means to purchase class materials prior to receiving the refund in order to be prepared for classes.  More information regarding vouchers can be found on the College Website in the Bursar section.
