Payment or payment arrangements for all charges for tuition, fees, and room and board for the fall and spring semesters must be made before the beginning of the term or students risk de-registration from semester courses. The payment deadline for Fall term is July 1 and for Spring term December 1. Students can select from a number of different payment methods as detailed below.
Payment for winter and summer terms is due upon registration. Financial Aid and payment plans cannot be used for winter term. In limited cases, financial aid may be available for the summer term when enrolling for six or more credit hours. Failure to make payments as scheduled will result in finance charges assessed on the outstanding balance.
CCU correspondence to students is primarily through e-mail. Students are responsible to keep their e-mail contact information up-to-date and to check their e-mail regularly for information regarding their CCU account. Students’ current account balance information is always accessible through their WebAdvisor online account.
Financial Aid—including any scholarships, grants, and loans—must first be applied to the student’s institutional charges which includes tuition, fees, room, and board. Please note: no financial aid funds can be disbursed without documentation of high school or GED completion. If financial aid does not cover the entire bill, the student is responsible to pay the remainder of the bill through either a Full Payment Method or a Monthly Payment Method. Overpayment will be refunded to the student.
As noted above, payment or payment arrangements must be made before the beginning of the term. If financial aid is awarded and/or disbursed after the first day of the semester, the student’s portion is still due prior to the start of the term.
Student pays the full semester charges (the portion not covered by financial aid and other outside sources) by the due date.
Payment can be made as follows:
Through NBS e-Cashier, students may set up an automated monthly payment plan to pay their student charges evenly divided over a set number of months, depending upon when enrolled in the plan. The payments are taken out of a checking or savings account on the 5th of every month until the balance is paid in full. The maximum number of months that can be used for the plan is 12 months, beginning in July and ending in June, for a full year (two semester) payment plan.
