When is the Deadline to Pay?

Spring Semester Classes January 19, 2016

(To avoid additional finance charges, tuition and fees must be paid on the later of the first day of each semester or on the date of your enrollment.

Non-Credit Offerings

Non-credit courses, workshops, and seminars will be priced on the basis of individual program costs. Payment in full is due at the time of enrollment.

Fee Payment due date

Students at Oklahoma City Community College will be charged tuition and fees for all classes in which they are enrolled as of the fee due date for the semester. Fee due dates are listed in the college class schedule and the college catalog as well as online on the bursar webpage. Students who pay on their date of enrollment or by the fee due date for the semester will pay tuition and fees only. Students who choose to make monthly payments will be assessed a finance charge. Students enrolling after the initial due date must pay in full at the time of enrollment or go to the Bursar’s Office to find out the minimum payment due. STUDENTS WILL NOT BE CANCELLED FROM CURRENT CLASSES DUE TO NON PAYMENT OF CURRENT TUITION AND FEES BY THE FEE DUE DATE. Instead, students will be automatically billed on a monthly basis for all tuition and fees due (see below). Students must withdraw from any classes in which they do not wish to be enrolled prior to the due date in order to avoid finance charges. Students will receive a refund only for classes from which they withdraw prior to or during the official refund period. See the academic calendar for exact withdrawal dates.

In compliance with the College’s fee payment policy, students WILL be canceled from any future enrollments if they have not paid in full by the final payment due date for the semester. A Bursar hold will be placed upon records and enrollment activity.

Oklahoma City Community College does use the services of a collection agency for all past due accounts that remain unpaid after the end of the semester. Overdue account balances will be assessed all additional collection charges associated with the collection of the debt to include reasonable attorney’s fees, court costs and all other charges allowed by law. This may result in endangering your credit rating on a local and/or national level by being reported to all three credit bureau’s (Equifax, TransUnion, Experian). Oklahoma City Community College also participates in the State of Oklahoma’s Warrant Intercept Program, authorized by House Bill No. 1314 of the State of Oklahoma in 1983. The Intercept System allows a state agency to take a debtor’s tax refund and apply it to their indebtedness which may result in collection of debt many years in the future.

Fee Payment options

Students may choose to pay their tuition and fees prior to the beginning of the semester or by making monthly payments.

OPTION 1: Pay Fees by Due Date

Students may pay their tuition and fees by the published fee due date for the 2015 Spring semester (January 20, 2015), or on their date of enrollment, and incur no additional finance charges. Students enrolling after the initial due date must pay in full at the time of enrollment or go to the Bursar’s Office to find out the minimum payment due.

OPTION 2: Make Monthly Payments*

Students may choose to pay their fees on a monthly basis. Monthly payments will include a 2% finance charge on the outstanding balance. A late payment charge of $20 will be applied to any payment not received by the 5th of each month.

*Students choosing to pay tuition and fees on a monthly basis are required to comply with the payment schedule in order to enroll, or remain enrolled, in any future semesters. Payment in full will be required by the last monthly billing date for the semester.

Refunds for Schedule Changes or Complete Withdrawals *

Students adjusting their schedules or completely withdrawing from all classes during the first two weeks of a 16-week class or the first week of a four-, five-, six- or eight-week class will be charged 100% fees for any courses added and will receive a 100% refund of tuition and fees for any dropped courses. See academic calendar for exact withdrawal dates.

* See posted dates on the academic calendar.

If you are receiving student financial assistance funds (Pell Grants, SEOG, Direct Loans) and completely withdraw from the college during a semester, you may be required to repay a portion of the funds that are determined to be “unearned.”

The calculation of earned vs. unearned funds is based directly on the portion of the semester you attended before totally withdrawing. This calculation is not related to the college’s tuition refund policy. It is in addition to the college’s refund policy and is required by Federal Title IV regulations.

All refunds, including financial aid, will be processed in accordance with preferences selected using your OCCC debit card at www.occcdebitcard.com. Payments made by credit card will be refunded to the credit card.

Fees Are Subject to Change

In the event that the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education approve a fee change, you will be assessed accordingly.

Financial Aid Applicants

Students who apply for Federal student aid, are awarded by the published fee due date, and who maintain financial aid eligibility will have their tuition and fees deducted from their financial aid.

Students who are not awarded by the published fee due date and have not paid their tuition and fees will automatically be billed on a monthly basis and incur finance and late charges consistent with College policy.

Students who are awarded state, college and/or Federal aid insufficient to cover their charges in full are responsible for the remaining balance due after their award(s) are credited to their account. They will be billed monthly and incur appropriate finance and late charges calculated on the remaining balance.

Never Attended—Non-Attendance

  • Students who do not attend the course(s) for which they are enrolled will be reported by the individual faculty member as never attended and be subsequently administratively withdrawn from the course(s). Students who enroll, but do not attend will be responsible for the full amount of the tuition and fees owed.
  • Faculty members will be asked to submit a report of students who have never attended their class one week after the add and drop period for that term.
  • Students, regardless of whether or not they have made any payment or been approved for financial aid, will be administratively withdrawn from their course(s), but no reduction in charges will occur.
  • Those approved for financial aid will not be awarded that aid if marked as never attended.
  • Never attended in online classes will be defined as having not engaged in course assignments or discussion and in face-to-face classes as having not had a physical presence in the classroom.
  • Students will have 90 days from the end of the term to appeal for a late administrative withdraw and/or a reduction/elimination of charges. The appeal process will be administered on one form and managed by the Director of the Bursar Office and the Registrar or their designees.
  • Additionally, if a student does not begin attending any of their courses during the add/drop period, their pending financial aid disbursements will be cancelled. Funds disbursed prior to the start of the semester will be returned in full to financial aid programs and the student is responsible for reimbursing Oklahoma City Community College.
