 Tuition/Fee Payments for Third Party Sponsored Students

Students sponsored by a third party, must submit the third party authorization to the Office of Business and Finance by the payment deadline for each semester.  This constitutes payment and will hold your classes.  Any tuition and/or fees not covered by the third party will be the responsibility of the student and must be paid by the payment deadline.  Please refer to the Registration Schedule for the payment deadline(s). 

If you need to speak to an Accounting Technician concerning your authorization, please visit the Third Party Contact page to determine who to contact.  


Refunds for tuition and fees are processed approximately 2-3 weeks after the drop/add period ends.  Refunds will be issued back to your credit card if paid by credit card. 

All other refunds will be electronically deposited into your personal bank account if you login to WebAdvisor and enter your bank account information or by a paper check that will be mailed.                

Please make certain your correct mailing address is on file in the Registrar's Office.


New Tuition Refund Guidelines

Beginning Fall 2015, tuition refunds for dropped classes will be made as follows:
  1. A 100 percent refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws (drops) prior to the first day of the academic semester/term as noted in the college calendar; or prior to the first day of the class for classes that are not consistent with the academic semester/term. A 100 percent refund shall also be made if the college cancels a course.  Fees are refunded at 100 percent only when all tuition is refunded at 100 percent.
  2. A 75 percent refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws (drops) from a class prior to or on the official 10 percent point of the class.  Fees are non-refundable when any portion of a student's tuition is refunded at 75 percent.


Miscellaneous fees are non-refundable, including: gym fees, malpractice insurance fees, replacement ID card fees, and testing fees.
