Financial aid funds include Federal Direct Loans, Federal Grants, Private Alternative Loans, and Scholarships. The Financial Aid Office processes the awarding of all student aid. Once the financial aid funds are certified, these funds will be applied to the student's bill as pending financial aid. The anticipated funds need to be pending on the account to be deducted from the balance due. Please allow enough time in applying for financial aid to meet clearance deadlines. After the semester begins and enrollment is verified the funds will be disbursed to the school. Visit the Financial Aid website for more information on applying for financial aid.
The Tuition Payment Plan administered by Official Payments:
Tuition payment plans are available for the 2015–2016 school year. To activate a payment plan, please visit the Official Payments enrollment page and follow the prompts to complete your enrollment. Please note that plans must be set up and current to be considered active and therefore clear you for registration. Please note that Official Payments charges a fee of $35 for 5-Pay Plans and $25 for 4-Pay Plans. A fee of 2.6% is charged for using a credit card to make payments. There is no fee for electronic check payments.
Third Party Payment:
The BAC will bill a sponsor, government organization, or employer for all or part of your tuition and fees. You must submit a purchase order and/or sponsorship letter prior to the semester's clearance deadline. The purchase order should include the organizations billing information, the student it plans to sponsor, for what semester and/or specific courses, and for the exact dollar amount they will pay. Payment must be submitted directly to the BAC and is due within 30 days of the invoice date. Please note that third party sponsorship cannot be contingent upon the receipt of grades.
If the sponsorship eligibility changes and payment is not made you are ultimately responsible for any outstanding balance. Please contact the Bursar's Office with any questions.
