Billing Procedures and Payment Policies
Prior to the beginning of each semester, preregistered students and deposited freshmen receive statements of estimated charges and financial aid. These statements are based on preregistration information only and are subject to change. Final charges and aid are posted after the third week of classes. Statements reflecting actual activity are normally mailed on or before the 15th of each month.
Each year, each student signs a promissory note acknowledging his or her understanding of the responsibility to pay all charges incurred during the academic year.
Tuition and fees are payable before or at the time of registration. Preregistered students should pay according to the estimated bill received. Registration is not complete until tuition, fees, room, board, and any applicable fines have been paid, or until satisfactory arrangements have been made with the student account manager.
Estimated bills are prepared based on information available at the time of preparation. Final charges may vary from the estimated billings because of circumstances that alter residency, credit hours of enrollment, financial aid eligibility, and other related variables. It is each student’s responsibility to pay all charges incurred during an academic year, whether or not these charges are reflected on estimated billings.
Students are not permitted to attend classes until their financial affairs are satisfactorily arranged. If a student's account becomes delinquent, the College reserves the right to preclude the student from attending classes. In the event that a student's account is not paid in full by the end of the semester, the student may not be permitted to attend classes the next semester until satisfactory financial arrangements have been made.
