Tuition and Fees

Tuition and Fees

The amount of tuition assessed each term varies based on program of study, residency, and the number of credit hours enrolled. Tuition and fees are assessed in accordance with the policies set forth by the State Board for Technical and Adult Education and are subject to change without notice. The current tuition and fee schedule may be obtained by clicking here. Please note, in some courses of study, specific program fees apply in addition to the standard fees and vary based on the program of study. Continuing education and business contract training fees are assessed differently based on the course content or individual needs of the business requesting development of the course.

All students applying for in-state tuition must provide validation of lawful presence in the United States. Please click here to see a listing of approved documentation that may be submitted for in-state tuition consideration.

Payment Deadlines

All tuition and fees are due by the stated deadlines and may be paid by cash, check, credit/debit card, money order, third-party assistance, or approved financial aid. Students whose tuition and fees are not paid by the third class day of the semester will be dropped from classes.

Withdrawal/Dropping Classes
Dropping classes or withdrawing completely can result in a reduction of a student’s financial aid. Students who drop classes or withdraw may not have enough financial aid to cover their current tuition, fees, or book charges, or may have already received a Pell refund to which they are no longer entitled. As a result, the student will be held financially responsible for any balance due to the college. See the refund policy below for more information on Title IV (Pell & SEOG) funds.

Drop/Add Period
Students who withdraw from a course by the end of the third instructional day of the semester shall receive a 100 percent refund, excluding the application fee. Students who withdraw after the third instructional day of the semester shall receive no refund. In addition, courses dropped after the drop/add period will be counted as “attempted” for financial aid purposes and the student will receive a grade of “W” or a final letter grade of F.

Withdrawing from the College

A student who is withdrawing from attendance at the college must confer with his or her advisor to complete a withdrawal form. The timely and accurate completion of this form is critical and may have financial aid implications. Failure of the student to complete this form and properly withdraw may affect future aid decisions as well as decisions on readmittance.  For students who withdraw without proper notification, a withdrawal form will be completed by the advisor using the best available information. Students can withdraw from a course prior to the midpoint of the scheduled course dates of the semester and receive a "W." After such date, a grade of “F” will be given if a student does not complete a course or is found in fault of course abandonment.

Financial Obligations
A student with a balance due to the college for any reason is subject to being dropped from classes or having a hold placed on his/her student account. The hold will prevent the student from obtaining grades, transcripts, or registering for future classes until all financial obligations have been cleared.
