Late Payment Policy
It is the responsibility of each student to frequently access his or her account in SONIS and be aware of published payment due dates on the Academic Calendar and/or Tuition Payment Plan Enrollment Form. All student accounts are to be paid-in-full or a student must enroll in the Tuition Payment Plan by the published Tuition and Fees due date for that semester. Payment due dates for students choosing to pay the full balance prior to the beginning of each semester are published in the Academic Calendar. Students choosing to enroll in the ‘Tuition Payment Plan’ should refer to the ‘Tuition Payment Plan Enrollment Form’ for the payment due dates for the semester.
If payment is not received by the due date, the student will be subject to a $25 per day late fee. The $25 per day late fee will accrue during the late period of five (5) business days or until all financial obligations (including late fees) have been met. If the financial obligations (late fees included) are not met after five (5) business days from the payment due date the student’s account will be referred to the Dean, College Support Services, and may result in Blackboard access being disabled, withdrawal from a course(s) and/or dismissal from the college.
Adding a Class After The Payment Deadline
Students may add a class after the published tuition payment due date. Payment for the additional class will be due within five (5) business days of adding the course or by the published ‘Last Day for 100% Refund’ for the session the course is in. Registration is not complete until payment is made with the Student Accounts Office. If the student is already enrolled in the Tuition Payment Plan, remaining payments can be adjusted to reflect the additional charges by contacting the Student Accounts Office.
A student may add a course(s) after they were dropped from a course(s) due to non-payment. The student would contact the Registrar’s Office to enroll in the course(s), and contact the Student Accounts Office to make full payment (plus late fees) or set up a Tuition Payment Plan (including the late fees). Registration is not complete until payment is made with the Student Accounts Office. The Student Accounts Office and Registrar’s Office cannot promise the student will have the same class schedule as they had prior to being dropped for non-payment.
Returned Check Policy
A $15.00 fee will be charged for any check returned. More than two (2) returned checks will result in immediate suspension of your right to pay by check.
Student Refunds, Direct Deposit, FSA Hold Credit, and Book Vouchers
Students may qualify for refunds as a result of financial aid awards or overpayment in excess of charges during the semester. The amount to be credited to the student is displayed at the bottom of the Billing Statement next to Balance in parenthesis. Students can use the credit on their account to purchase textbooks, e-books, and/or supplies from The Christ Hospital’s Joseph-Beth Bookstore location during the allotted time period each semester.
Credits will be initially refunded to the student (or Co-Signer on a Parent Plus Loan) during the fifth (5th) week of the term from the Student Accounts Office via direct deposit or a check mailed to the address on file. A notification will be emailed when the refund checks will be direct deposited to a student, if a direct deposit form has been submitted, or when a check will be mailed.
Credit can also be held on a student’s account to be used toward the next semester’s bill within the academic year. Students should complete the FSA Form to have their credit balance held on their account.
Students are responsible for payment of all costs associated with attending The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences by the published due date on the Academic Calendar. Application for financial assistance does not negate this responsibility. The financial obligation for each semester must be met in order to remain enrolled at the College and to register for a subsequent semester. Unusual circumstances or a financial crisis should be reported to the Student Account’s Office immediately so that the College can assist the student in planning or determining possible alternatives.
Students and former students are required to meet all financial obligations before grades, transcripts or degrees will be issued.
