Fees and Deposits

If a student is receiving funding from an outside agency and the agency would like to be invoiced directly for a student's educational costs, the student must arrange to have the agency complete a Confirmation of Sponsorship form. This form is available in the Financial Aid Office or on the Financial Aid section of the College's website.
This form, outlining what costs the sponsoring agency is willing to cover for a student (i.e. tuition, fees, books, supplies, tuition deposit), must be received by the payment deadline specified (see Fee Payment) or the student may have their registration dropped and they may be charged a fee for the reinstatement of their registration.

Withholding Academic Results and Credentials - Financial Holds
The College reserves the right to withhold the granting of official transcripts, and graduation documents to students who have not returned College property such as textbooks, equipment or supplies, or who owe money to the College. Students in these situations normally have a hold placed on their student accounts. While an account is on hold the student will not be permitted to register for other courses and will not receive transcripts or credentials.
If a student has applied to graduate and has not cleared outstanding accounts, they may not be allowed to participate in Convocation ceremonies and they will not receive graduation documents until their account is in good standing.
The deadline for students to drop Fall or Winter registrations for full tuition and fee refund is declared in Important Dates. A student withdrawn for disciplinary reasons shall be ineligible for a refund of fees. Wherein the College has a contract with an outside agency that agrees to cover a student’s tuition and fees, the terms and conditions dealing with refunds may differ from College policy.
