To receive a financial clearance, you must see a Business Office Representative to verify that you have adequate Financial Aid or make satisfactory payment arrangements to cover your cost of attendance.

You are not “officially enrolled” unless you obtain financial clearance. Students not “officially enrolled” will be dropped from all of their classes during Enrollment Verification.
Step 3: GO TO CLASS!

Business Office Hold
The Business Office will place a "Hold" on registration, diplomas, and transcripts for students having outstanding financial obligations to the College of one dollar or greater. If a student has not made payment to an office on a timely basis for services received or other transactions, a Business Office Hold will be placed on student records and transcripts. The Hold will block registrations and transcripts until the delinquent financial obligation is cleared. Examples of outstanding financial obligations include parking fines, unpaid parking tickets, unreturned books to the library, unpaid tuition and fees. All account balances not paid in full when due are the sole responsibility of the student. The student is responsible for all costs incurred by the College to collect such debt. This may include, but is not limited to, late fees, collections costs, litigation/attorney's fees, and court costs.
Withdrawals - Reductio n of Tuition (Refund Policy)
Withdrawal Adjustments are based solely on the date of withdrawal, regardless of whether students attend any class(es). The student must file with and have approved a written withdrawal with the Office of the Registrar. Failure to attend class is not a withdrawal and students will not receive adjustment of charges if they do not attend class. In the case of non-payment, the student will be declared delinquent and subject to the penalties. See Course Catalog for current withdrawal policy.
