2013–14 Payment Procedures for College Students
New students will pay a $200 deposit fee after being accepted as a student. They then will pay a down payment of $1,500 by July 15. A $25 late fee will be assessed if the down payment is not received by the due date.
Returning students are to pay a down payment of $1,000 by July 15. A $25 late fee will be assessed if the down payment is not received by the due date.
All students will need to have their account cared for by the first day of the semester. Payment due will be the semester charges less financial assistance through scholarships, grants, and/or loans.
Students have two options for paying their account.
• Pay the balance due by the first day of class each semester.
• Use an automatic payment plan.
Failing to complete all the payment arrangements by the first day of each semester will result in a $100 late fee. Interest of 12% APR is charged on the first of any month in which charges are not completely covered.
To help you figure your costs, complete the Estimated Charges and Financial Aid Worksheet. If you are a nontraditional student (e.g., taking fewer than 14 credit hours, living off campus), use the financial information listed above to figure your costs.
Students taking fewer than six hours are to pay all charges for the semester by the first day of the semester. A late fee of $100 will be assessed if financial arrangements have not been made.
Summer school students are to pay all charges for the course(s) on the first day of the class.
Exceptions to any payment procedure must be approved by the Vice President for Business and Operations before the start of the semester.
Delinquent accounts will result in the withholding of degrees, diplomas, and official transcripts until payment has been made in full. Unpaid accounts will be subject to the collection procedures of the college.
