A Tuition Payment Plan (see below) has been established which will allow parents to make up to five monthly payments each semester for balances due. There is a one-time fee for using the tuition payment plan, but no additional interest is charged for use of the plan. However, payments not received according to the payment schedule will be charged a late fee of $25.00.
Statements are prepared at the beginning of each month with payments due by the 30th of the month. Other student charges for the bookstore, library or other fines, lab and studio fees will appear on the monthly statements.
A student's account must be current and in good standing in order for that student to register for classes, receive an official transcript, have academic credits certified, be granted a leave of absence, or have a degree conferred.
A student who is considering withdrawal should confer with the student accounts office and financial aid office concerning anticipated refunds. No refund is made in case of suspension or expulsion except when a student is eligible for the pro-rata refund as mandated by the federal government.
No refund of fees will be made in the event a student withdraws from the college after the semester begins, except as stated below.

The student accounts office must approve the refund, determined from the date of notification of withdrawal, before it is issued. Adjustments in financial aid awards for students who withdraw will be determined according to the following procedures:
