Student Tuition and Fees Responsibility Policy
Tuition and Fees Policy
Students are responsible for payment or making payment arrangements with the Dean of Students by the first day of classes. Any amount owed to the college including, but not limited to, tuition and fees is considered a receivable and a debt owed to the college. A receivable becomes past due if payment is not received by the payment due date. When a receivable becomes past due a “Registration Hold” is placed on a student’s electronic Populi account that prevents students from registering for future terms or making changes to the current term schedule until the balance is paid in full. In addition, graduation candidates must have all balanced due to the college paid in full in order to be eligible for graduation-related privileges, including receiving their diploma, having their degree conferred, and receiving education transcripts. Students who become unresponsive to collections attempts by the college will have their electronic Populi account place on “Course” and “Grades/Transcript” hold until payment or payment arrangements have been made. Student billings are sent out electronically monthly. Students are notified of account balances and tuition payments that are due. Those who have account balances are encouraged to work closely with the Dean of Students to ensure compliance with this tuition and fees policy. Please reach out to the Dean of Students, Audrey Richardson, for assistance at 540-898-5077 or email arichardson@CornerstoneCollegeVA.org.
