Bill Payment

The college may receive funds for a student from various sources. All monies are applied to the student’s account as received until the bill is satisfied. If the college receives funds that result in a refund for the student, the refund will be available for pickup in the Student Records and Financial Services Office for one week. Any remaining refund checks not picked up after one week will be mailed to the student’s home address. Go to Banner Web, click on "Student Services and Financial Aid," click on "Student Accounts," then on "Display Refund Detail" to see if a refund has been generated.

Importance of Proper Registration - Students must properly register and pay by the appropriate deadlines for all courses for which they expect to receive credit. Students are cautioned that simply attending classes and completing course requirements does not entitle anyone to register after the deadlines have passed or to claim credit for a course in which he/she has participated as an unregistered or a deregistered student. Students must resolve all problems regarding registrations with the Student Records and Financial Services Office. Questions about payments are handled in the Student Records and Financial Services Office.

Late registrants are students who are registered or have processed their bill after the initial billing due date each term. Late registrants will be subject to a late registration fee of $50. This fee is nonrefundable.

De-registration/Blocking - Students who do not comply with published tuition payment deadlines or who have other major obligations to the college may be de-registered, or automatically dropped, from the courses for which they have registered prior to the new academic period. They may also be blocked from receiving college services such as official transcripts and placement records.

Deadlines - Courses may be added and dropped according to academic regulations. Please refer to Full semester courses dropped after the first week of class will incur a liability, according to the liability policy which follows. For courses less than a full semester in length, please contact the Student Records and Financial Services Office for the appropriate liability schedule.

Liability Policy
