Keep in mind that the cost of attending a St. Augustine College education may differ from individual to individual depending on a variety of factors, ranging from where you live, to the transportation you use. However, St. Augustine College has a variety of resources ranging from scholarships to obtaining the maximum in financial aid so that you pay little to nothing out of pocket.
Anyone accepted for admission to St. Augustine College who is a citizen or permanent resident of the United States may be eligible for financial aid. Although the government regulations largely determine what “financial need” is, the staff of the Financial Aid Office will assist students in meeting their financial needs in order to attend the College.
Payment of Tuition and Fees
Charges for tuition and fees are due and payable in full at the time of registration for any semester. Students who are self-financed can arrange a special payment plan with the Bursar’s Office. At the time of registration, self-financed students are required to make a minimum payment equal to 25% of the tuition and fees. Use of a special plan does not relieve the student of the obligation for the total semester charges, subject to the withdrawal and refund policies of the College. Charges may be paid by money order, VISA, MasterCard, cash, or personal check. In the latter some restrictions may apply. Students may also apply for student loans through the Office of Financial Aid.
Selected courses may carry a fee in addition to tuition charges. Any course with an additional fee is so noted in the Program Descriptions section of this website. Inquiries on course fees should be directed to the Bursar’s Office.
Refunds, Including Title IV Refunds
Any students who withdraw (drop) from a class before the end of the third week of class will be granted a full (100%) refund. Additionally, students who attend a class only once or never by the end of the third week will be automatically withdrawn (dropped) and receive a full (100%) refund. If the College cancels a class and is not able to place the student in another suitable class, any tuition and fees paid for the closed class will be refunded. For terms shorter than a semester, the refund period will be reduced in the same proportion. Refunds are calculated according to the U.S. Department of Education’s guidelines for the refund and return of Title IV student aid.
According to federal law, the Office of Financial Aid must recalculate Federal Title IV financial aid (excluding Federal Work Study funds) for students who withdraw from all classes or cease to attend on or before completing the 60% point of the semester. After the 60% point, the student is deemed to have earned 100% of the Title IV funds.
Withdrawal date is defined as the student’s last date of recorded attendance or the midpoint of the semester for students who leave without notifying the institution.
