Past Due Accounts & Policies

Past Due Accounts

If the account balance is not paid or payment arrangements are not made by the drop/add date each semester, a late payment fee of $100 will be applied to the account. If a balance remains at the end of the semester, an additional $150 fee will be applied. Any balance remaining 60 days after your separation from the College (graduation, withdrawal, leave of absence, etc.) will be sent to collections.

Current students who carry a past due balance will not be permitted to register for next semester classes until their student billing account balance is $1,000 or less.

Signed diplomas will be held for graduating seniors until the account is paid in full.
