Financial Information and Policies

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. This financial commitment will likely provide dividends and opportunities that will be well worth the investment. Crown College has made a commitment to partner with students in this process by providing the research, instructors, classrooms, resources and administrative support to facilitate student success. 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. Due dates can be found in the Academic Calendar.

Other Charges

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

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.  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.

Crown College does not accept students' participation in a company reimbursement plan as a method of advance payment. Students whose employers reimburse educational costs must use the above methods of payment and seek reimbursement from their employer.

Arts & Science students are required to pay their semester bill or make financial arrangements before the semester begins. See the Academic Calendar for specific dates. Students who fail to do so may be administratively withdrawn.  Upon receiving the withdrawal notification, the student will have 10 days to meet all financial obligations or they will be administratively withdrawn. Once withdrawn, the student will no longer have access to the computer network resources (including but not limited to Internet, Canvas, Our.crown, Crown email). The student will be required to vacate the premises by noon on the designated date, and will not be allowed on campus without written permission from the Dean of Students.

Crown Online students are required to pay their semester bill by the first day of the semester. If students register after the start of the semester, bills are due upon registration.  See the Academic Calendar for specific dates.

Textbook Voucher

Students participating in financial aid will have access to a voucher for textbook purchases made through the Crown College Virtual Bookstore.

To be eligible for textbook vouchers, students must:

  1. Apply for financial aid.
  2. Have funds in excess of tuition and associated fees to cover book costs.
  3. Purchase books through the Crown College Virtual Bookstore. (MBS)

Once issued, the voucher information will be sent to the Crown student email address from MBS. The voucher will expire just prior to aid disbursement.

Please contact the Crown College Student Billing Office at billing@crown.edu or call 952-446-4126 for information.

Financial Aid Refunds

Crown College partners with Tuition Management Systems for refunds and disbursements (click here to view the Refund Services Agreement). If a refund for excess financial aid is due, students have a choice to receive direct deposit or a re-loadable Crown College Prepaid Card. Learn more at crown.afford.com/refunds or call 1-888-425-1138.

Late Fines

A late fine will be assessed if full payment is not received by the semester due date.  See the Academic Calendar for specific dates.

Service Charges

On the 1st of each month, the College applies a service charge of 1.0% per month on 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.

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 a transcript or diploma.

Collection of Unpaid Accounts

The college turns over unpaid student accounts that are inactive 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 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.

Withdrawal Policies

Arts & Sciences Withdrawal Policies

If a student decides to withdraw from the College, appropriate forms must be filed with the Registrar's Office. Upon withdrawal or dismissal from the college, students must make full payment of any outstanding balance. The following refund policy was adopted by the Board of Trustees and is consistent with guidelines published by the U.S. Department of Education.

Arts & Sciences Schedule of Tuition Refunds for Withdrawal

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

  Withdrawal during calendar days 1-10 90% refund
  Withdrawal during calendar days 11-29 50% refund
  Withdrawal during calendar days 30-64 25% refund
  Withdrawal after calendar day 64 no refund

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

Priority of Disbursing Funds

If a refund is due, 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.
