Outstanding Financial Obligation

All student balances must be paid in full unless the student has been awarded and accepted financial aid sufficient to cover the outstanding balance or is enrolled in the College’s payment plan. Students are permitted to attend classes and utilize College facilities only after they have settled their financial obligations to the College. Any subsequent modification to an expected amount of financial aid or student loan remains the full responsibility of the student and must be paid in full by the student. Failure to fully pay the financial obligation by the payment due date will result in the removal of registration from any or all classes.

In addition to following application and verification procedures for financial aid, the student’s eligibility must be confirmed and the student must accept offered awards electronically in SageAdvisor before those amounts can be applied as payment against tuition and fees. Please note that loan programs require an extended period of processing before the loan amount is credited to the student’s account. 

Furthermore, an unpaid financial obligation to the College will result in the withholding of the student’s grades, transcript of credits, diploma, and official reports and make the student ineligible for future financial aid awards, pre-registration, and resident room selections.
