After the last day to register or add in each semester, the Business Office will perform an audit of all tuition and fees assessed and collected and financial aid awarded. If it is discovered that a student has overpaid, a refund will be issued to the student via Higher One. If it is discovered that a student has underpaid, the student or responsible party will be billed. All balances are due immediately.

If a student has reason to believe the College owes him/her a refund, the student should inform the Business Office. In the event a refund is warranted, the College will issue that refund through the proper channels and in accordance with College policy.
