A non-refundable application fee of $25 is charged to each applicant for admission to full-or part-time status. The application fee is charged only once, as long as a student enrolls and pays fees within two years of the application.
There is a non-refundable registration fee of $31 per term for part-time (1-11 credit hours) students. Full-time students defined as taking 12 credit hours or more will not be charged a registration fee. This is refunded only when classes are cancelled by the College.
Late Registration Fee
All continuing students who re-register after being canceled for non-payment, and continuing students submitting their initial registration after the on-time registration date for each term will be assessed a $50 late registration fee.
Re-registration Petition After 15th Day of Term
If a student has not paid fees by the 15th day of the term, the student must complete a re-registration petition. Upon approval of the petition by the College, students must pay a $50 re-registration fee in addition to his/her tuition and fees. These fees must be paid before the College will re-register the student for his/her courses.
Student Installment Payment Plan
This plan is an alternative to the single payment of fees due prior to each academic term. The payment plan requires students to pay one-third of their fees plus a non-refundable $25 fee per term by the published deadline. The remaining balance is divided into two installments and is payable in approximately four-week increments. If the second or third installment payments are not received by the due date, the student will be assessed a $20 late fee for each late payment.
Late Payment Fee
There is a late payment fee of $20 for tuition and fees received after the published payment deadline.
Returned Payment Fee
A fee of $35 will be assessed for all checks returned to the College. A fee of $15 will be assessed for all rejected web payments.
Students who have neglected to pay their fees in full may be denied services such as grades, transcripts, financial aid, further registration and graduation. Some accounts may be referred to a collection agency. In addition to any outstanding tuition and fees, the student will be responsible for the costs of collection including, without limitation, interest, penalties, collection agency costs, court costs and attorney fees. Students that encounter difficulty in meeting their financial obligations should discuss the situation with the Business Office or Financial Aid Office before such measures become necessary.
Laboratory Fees and Instructional Support Charges
Laboratory fees and instructional support charges will be assessed for the cost of supplies and equipment used in selected courses.
Distance Education Fee
There is a $10.50 per credit hour charge for each distance education course taken.
A non-refundable graduation fee of $25 is charged to all students receiving a degree. This fee is payable to the Business Office with the student’s graduation petition. The petition is available in either the Office of Advising or the Business Office. (See the Graduation Requirements section for graduation petition deadlines.)
Tuition Reimbursement/Deferment Option
For students eligible for tuition reimbursement benefits from their employer, the College offers deferment of tuition and fees until 30 days after the term of registration. There is a $25 fee per term to defer tuition with this option. It is necessary for students to complete the Tuition Reimbursement/Deferment form each term they choose to use this option. The $25 fee is payable when the deferment form is presented to the Business Office.
Credit by Examination, Credit for Experience, and Credit for Non-Academic Learning
Students may proficiency up to 10 credit hours. The fee is $25 per credit hour, payable in the Business Office. These requests cannot be processed during the term of intended graduation. See the Dean/Chairperson of your academic division for more information.
