The board plan is controlled by a debit card, which allows for a variety of meal plans and cash options (flex dollars). Flex dollars must be used by the end of the academic year, or they will be forfeited. All resident students are required to take advantage of one of the three meal plans offered.

Upon acceptance, new students must pay a non-refundable $200 matriculation fee. In addition, new students who will be living on campus must pay a non-refundable $200 room reservation fee. Returning commuter students must pay a non-refundable $200 advance registration fee. Returning resident students must pay an additional non-refundable $200 advance room reservation fee.

Advance Payment Fee Notices are e-mailed in February and payment is due within 30 days. No student will be allowed to register unless accounts are clear of all indebtedness to the College and the non-refundable advance payment fee is received by the College bursar. It is the responsibility of each student to pay charges as listed below. A late fee of $200 may be charged to accounts after the term due date.

Students registering for more than 19 credits in a semester will be charged $850 per credit over the 19 credit load. No one may register for 21 or more credits in a term without written permission from the vice president for academic affairs. Additional fees will be charged for independent study and for field trips required for certain courses.  Books, supplies and equipment may be purchased at the College Bookstore.

All full-time undergraduate students are required to carry health insurance. The College offers a health insurance plan for those students who are not otherwise covered.  Students who are required to provide proof of insurance and do not comply will automatically be enrolled in a health insurance plan at their own expense.

In the event of any financial default, the College shall have the right to employ a collection agency and/or any other legal means to collect sums due. Students will be required to pay all collection costs, including legal fees and interest.

Other expenses include a contingency deposit of $150 that is required of all full-time students as a guarantee for payment of damage to or loss of college property, residence hall damages, unpaid telephone charges, library and parking fines, or similar penalties imposed by the college.  

Throughout the academic year, students who have used any of the $150 will be billed accordingly. Upon graduation or withdrawal from the college, students will receive a refund of that portion of the contingency deposit not used.

Diplomas and transcripts will not be issued until a student has made satisfactory settlement of his or her accounts.
