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 payment plan with Nelnet Campus Commerce.  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 mycollegepaymentplan.com/crowncollege or call 1-800-609-8056.

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 Students who fail to do so may be administratively withdrawn.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notification, the student will have 10 days to meet all financial obligations, or they will be administratively withdrawn. Once withdrawn, the student will no longer have access to the computer network resources (including but not limited to Internet, Canvas, Our.crown, Crown email).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. Students who fail to do so may be administratively withdrawn.

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 Nelnet Campus Commerce for refunds and disbursements. If a refund for excess financial aid is due, students have a choice to receive funds via direct deposit, reloadable debit card or check. Learn more at our.crown.edu or call 1-800-609-8056.

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 Nelnet Campus Commerce 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. Crown College also reserves the right to process an administrative withdrawal if prior charges have not been paid in full. If a student is administratively withdrawn due to non-payment, Crown College will follow the parameters set by the Minnesota Office of Higher Education. Contact the Student Billing Office at billing@crown.edu or call 952-446-4126 for specific details.

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.

Crown College will process requests for official transcripts if any of the following circumstances apply as defined by the Minnesota Transcript Access Bill:

  • Current or former student who owes less than $250.
  • Current or former student who is in compliance with an approved Crown College payment plan. Note: to be in compliance, student must have completed two monthly payments or 30% of the balance paid whichever is greater.
  • Transcript is requested by a prospective employer for the student. (Student consent form still needed.)
  • Current or former student whose debt was sent to a collection agency.

Students always have the right to view their academic records including transcripts according to FERPA (Family Education Rights & Privacy Act).

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.
