Return Check Policy
A check returned dishonored will constitute nonpayment of account and must be replaced by cash, cashier's check, money order, or credit card (MasterCard or VISA). This may result in withdrawal from the College and the requirement that the payment of the student's account for future terms be made by cash, cashier's check, money order, or credit card (MasterCard or VISA) prior to enrolling. A $25 charge will be assessed each time a payment is returned.
Students are responsible for payment being received in the Office of Student Account Services by the due date. No confirmation of receipt of payment will be sent. Invoices of charges are sent to the student's permanent mailing address. If an invoice has not been received two weeks prior to the due date, the Office of Student Account Services should be contacted. The enrollment of students whose accounts remain unpaid after the due date may be cancelled at the discretion of the College. Students enrolling after the official College due date must pay at the time of enrollment or will be notified when payment is due.
If proceeds from private and federal loans are to be used to pay a student account, funds will be sent to Student Account Services for disbursement by the payment due date.
Any student enrolling for classes during the Late Enrollment period will be assessed a $100 Late Enrollment Fee at the discretion of the Office of Enrollment Services.
Additionally, any student whose account remains unpaid after the payment due date will be assessed a Late Payment Fee of 2.5% of the balance at the time the account is past due.
