Financial Information and Policies

Financial Obligations

Semester Charges

Understanding and planning for the payment of charges resulting from enrollment in classes is a critical part of receiving an education at Crown College. Personnel are available in the Student Billing Office to assist students and their families so they understand the overall process, as well as the policies and deadlines associated with paying their bill.

Medical Insurance

All students are required to carry medical insurance. Students must complete a waiver form to provide proof of coverage in order to avoid a semester charge for medical insurance. If a waiver is not received, the student will be placed on insurance offered through the college and an appropriate charge will be made to the student's account.

Other Charges

Students may have charges (fines and/or fees) to their account that are not included during the registration process. These charges must be paid in full by the end of each month.

Payment Policies

Payments

Students must pay all charges not covered by financial aid (scholarships, grants, and loans). That balance can be paid via cash, check, or credit card or by registering for the Tuition Management Systems payment plan. Tuition Management Systems is the only monthly payment option available. The plan eliminates the lump sum payment due at the start of each semester but requires the balance to be paid within the semester. For more information, visit crown.afford.com or call 1-800-722-4867.

Full payment is due before the start of the semester. Payment is due by August 8, 2014, for the fall semester and by January 5, 2015, for the spring semester. The College reserves the right to administratively withdraw students from classes and require them to vacate the premises within 24 hours if accounts are not paid in full on or before the first day of classes.

Late Fine

A late fine will be assessed if full payment is not received before the start of the semester. The College reserves the right to administratively withdraw students from classes and require them to vacate the premises within 24 hours if accounts are not paid in full on or before the first day of classes.

Service Charges

On the 1st of each month, the College applies a service charge of 1.0% per month on all unpaid balances. Late financial aid and late Tuition Management payments are counted as unpaid balances. In order to avoid service charges, students should apply for financial aid well ahead of the semester and check with financial aid personnel to ensure all processes have been completed properly.

The College reserves the right to administratively withdraw students from classes and require them to vacate the premises within 24 hours if accounts are not paid in full on or before the first day of classes.

Unpaid Accounts

Registration for classes is dependent upon full payment of all prior charges. Students whose accounts are not fully paid will not be allowed to register for any upcoming semester until their account is paid-in-full.

Upon final departure from Crown, students must make full payment of any outstanding balance including all library, parking, and disciplinary fines as well as any other charges before the College will issue an official transcript or diploma.

Collection of Unpaid Accounts

The college turns over unpaid student accounts that are inactive for two months to a collection agency. This may negatively impact a student's credit score. The agency contacts the student regarding payment options. The student is responsible for all collection fees, which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 33% of the debt, and all costs and expenses including reasonable attorneys' fees that may be incurred in such collection efforts. (See Seeger v. AFNI, Inc. 548 F.3d 1107, 1110, 1113 (7th Cir. 2008); see also Boatley v. Diem Corp., No. CIV. 03-0762-PHX-SMM, 2004 WL 5315892, *5-6 (D. Ariz. Mar. 24, 2004)).  

By providing a telephone number for a cellular phone or other wireless device, students are expressly consenting to receive communications, including but not limited to prerecorded or artificial voice message calls, text messages, and calls made by an automatic telephone dialing system, from Crown College and its affiliates and agents at that number. This express consent applies to each such telephone number provided now or in the future and permits such calls regardless of their purpose. Calls and messages may incur access fees from your cellular provider.

Refund Policies

Withdrawal Policies

If a student decides to withdraw from the College or delete/modify other contracted services, appropriate forms must be filed with the Registrar's Office. When a student is dismissed from the College, any outstanding school accounts become immediately payable in cash. The following refund policy was adopted by the Board of Trustees and is consistent with guidelines published by the U.S. Department of Education.

Schedule of Tuition Refunds

The following schedule applies to tuition. Any other fees or charges are not refundable.

  Withdrawal during class days 1-8 90% refund
  Withdrawal during class days 9-20 50% refund
  Withdrawal during class days 21-40 25% refund
  Withdrawal after class day 40 no refund

Students deciding to drop classes are subject to the same tuition refund schedule.

Room Refund

Students who withdraw prior to the first official day of classes will be charged the daily guest room rate. Beginning with the first official day of classes, students will be charged a prorated amount of the semester charge.

Board Refund

Students who withdraw prior to the first official day of classes will be charged the guest meal rate. Beginning with the first official day of classes, students will be charged a prorated amount of the semester charge.

Priority of Disbursing Funds

If a refund is due the student, funds must be returned to the financial aid programs from which they came. If the student received funds from institutional or private programs, remaining refund monies will first be returned to institutional programs and then private agencies, not to exceed the amounts awarded in those programs.

Special Circumstances

Every student is presumed to be familiar with the costs and other matters pertaining to financial policy and procedures published in this catalog. Crown College reserves the right, however, to make any exceptions to the above policies to insure proper handling of each individual situation and in order to comply with State and Federal regulations.
