Paying Your Bill

Paying Your Bill




Tuition Deadlines will be posted on our Website and around campus.  We will send out postcards, bills, or phone calls at least two weeks prior to the tuition deadline.  You can make one or multiple payments to the Business Office as long as your tuition is paid in full by the tuition deadline.  Failure to pay your tuition balance in full by the tuition deadline may result in being dropped from your classes.  Payment for classes added after the tuition deadline is due at the time of enrollment.


IMPORTANT!   Non-attendance the first four (4) days of semester/class will result in the class/classes being dropped from the student's schedule.  You may re-register for these classes (if they are available and with the instructor's permission).  Please see the Registration Office for the add/drop form.


Please see Carl Sandburg College's refund schedule to determine if you are eligible for a refund.
