I am receiving Financial Aid or Veterans’ Benefits. How does billing work for me?
You will receive your invoice by email shortly after registering for your courses. For VA students, your invoice will be submitted to the VA for payment. Student loan money is applied when we receive the funds from the lender, which is typically around the beginning of the trimester. Any balance remaining due after loans or VA benefits needs to be paid promptly by the student.
What happens if I received financial aid funds in excess of the amount of my tuition invoice?
When are financial aid funds posted to my account, and any refunds sent out?
Financial aid funds are posted when the funds are received by the university. This will usually be later than the date the student receives a notification from the lender or Department of Education. Refunds for the excess funds are sent out within 14 days from the start of the trimester, or within 14 days if received during the trimester. This allows time to post the payments and to ensure students are still enrolled and actively participating in courses.
What happens if there is a delay in receiving the financial aid funds?
What happens if my financial aid funds do not cover my balance?
What happens if I received financial aid funds to cover my tuition, and I drop or withdraw from all of my courses?
What happens if I cannot pay my balance in full at the beginning of the trimester?
What other fees can I expect to be charged?
In addition to tuition, some courses have charges for materials provided for use in the course. Currently, there are fees charged for herb kits in several of the herbal medicine courses, and for items provided in the on-campus cooking labs. Graduating students are assessed a $75 graduation fee to cover the costs associated with completing the graduation review and diploma preparations, and one copy of the diploma or certificate. Specific information on tuition and fees is provided at the link here.
Will I receive a refund for dropping a course?
What is the difference between a drop and a withdrawal, and how does that affect my refund?
A withdrawal is a drop that occurs after a course has started. The amount refunded is determined by how much of the course has expired at the time of withdrawal. A link to the Refund Policy for drops and withdrawals is located here.
When is the Schedule Adjustment Period?
When are late fees assessed?
