Weekend College and Graduate Student Information
Students are expected to have their student account in a paid status prior to attending the first class meeting for a semester or moving into a residence hall. In order to have a student account in a "paid status", students must be either paid in full for the semester, officially signed up for an approved payment plan with the Office of Student Accounts, or a completed Deferment Form with fee submitted. Students are expected to familiarize themselves with the payment due dates.
After an internal review period, students who are registered for classes and have signed up for a residence hall room, whose student accounts are not in a paid status, by the published semester payment deadlines, will have their class schedules cancelled and their residence hall assignments cancelled for the term, and will be assessed a $100 Late Payment Fee.
Spring 2013 Refund Policy for Weekend College Students
Notification of withdrawal must be received by the Weekend College Office. Ceasing to attend a class, never attending, or notifying an instructor does not constitute official withdrawal from a course(s). Any and all tuition refunds are based upon the date that a student "officially" withdraws.
- Prior to and during the first class session, students will receive a full refund of tuition charges.
- After the first class session, and before the second class session, students will receive a 75% refund of tuition charges and no notation will appear on their transcript.
- After the second class session, and before the third class session, students will receive a 50% refund and a grade of 'W' will be recorded on their transcript.
- After the third class session, and prior to the last class session, students may withdraw from the course and receive a 'W' on their transcript. No tuition will be refunded.
Study Abroad trip fees have a separate refund policy.
Only one bill will be sent out prior to the due date. If you have completed a FASFA and you have received your financial aid award letter and aid does not appear on the bill, please deduct the amount on the Financial Aid Award Letter from the amount due on the bill, excluding work study.
Hiram College accepts payment by e-check/ACH, credit card, American Express, MasterCard, or Discover, cash or wire. To pay by e-check, or credit card, you can gain access to online payments by www.hiram.edu/ebill or on our Student Accounts website. There is a 2.5% fee for using a credit card; however, an e-check transaction is free.
