Payment Policy

Enrollment Fee Payment Policy/Pay-to-Stay

Students are entitled to enroll and participate in classes throughout the semester if they do not have any outstanding balance on their record. During the Priority Enrollment period, students must pay all fees in full prior to established Common Drop Dates or students will be dropped for nonpayment. Once the semester begins students are no longer dropped for non-payment, however, if payment is not made by established deadlines holds will be placed on student accounts. Grades, transcripts, diplomas and certificates will not be released until the student has paid all outstanding debts to the College.
