Students are responsible for paying all charges incurred as a result of registering for classes. The College will not drop a student's classes nor reduce tuition charges/fees due to a student's non-payment of those charges. Students may receive a fee reduction for classes by formally withdrawing (dropping) from those classes for any reason. The amount of the fee reduction is based upon the date of withdrawal (drop) and calculated according to the College's published refund schedule.
Here are the College’s policies for refunds and non-attendance at classes.
The due date for tuition and fees payments is the fifth business day of each term. Payment may be remitted directly to the Cashier’s Office, Room 154 Main Building. Credit card payment is also available after logging in to MyCState, via the “Make a Payment” link on the MyServices internal website.
Students whose accounts are not fully paid by the fifth business day of each term will be enrolled in the college’s Extended Payment Plan, which defers the payment due date approximately four weeks. A $60 fee is assessed to the students’ accounts.
