Late Payment

It is the policy of the College that the payment of tuition and comprehensive fee is due in full at each billing cycle as published in the College calendar. All students who expect to take out loans to meet their obligations must show proof of pending loans sufficient to meet the payment of tuition and fee on the due date.

If tuition is not paid in full on that day, or if proof of adequate pending loans is not furnished, a late fee of $100 per month will be assessed on the outstanding balance until such time as all obligations are met. A check that is not honored by the bank on which it was drawn will be subject to a $50 fee.

Students with outstanding balances from previous terms will not be permitted to register for the next term until all financial obligations are met either by payment in full or by proof of adequate pending loans. If a student is unable to meet his or her outstanding balances, the student will be granted an administrative leave of absence to rectify his or her credit situation.

All prior year balances must be satisfied before a student is permitted to start a new academic year. Balances remaining unpaid at the end of the fourth year or end of degree program will prevent a student from receiving his or her diploma. In the event that a student receives and accepts a late admission to the first year of study, an exception to the above policy will be considered if the appropriate loan applications are filed immediately with the expectation of making full tuition payment by the end of the first term. This exception is for the first term of the first year only. Any other exceptions to this policy must be discussed with the Director of Financial Operations.

In accordance with VA policy, students receiving VA benefits will not be charged a late fee due to any delay in receipt of their VA benefit.
