Payment of Tuition and Fees     

Fall Semester

Students wishing to enroll for Fall Semester classes may do so on the published dates during the months of June and July
and must pay tuition and related fees on the same day that they register; otherwise, their registration will be cancelled.

Spring Semester, Summer Session, and Special Session Classes

Students enrolling for classes must pay all tuition and related fees on the same day that they register. Failure to do so will
result in the cancellation of their registration.

Students who have not paid tuition and fees are not authorized to attend class(es).

 

Maintenance Fee

All students enrolled for three or more semester hours on campus pay a Maintenance Fee. Currently, the Maintenance Fee is $1.00 per credit. Monies are used to maintain College parking lots.

Information Technology Fee

All students on and off campus will be charged a technology fee for each credit hour for which they enroll. This fee will be shown
separately on the registration form. All monies support the acquisition of high technology equipment for academic purposes. The
Technology Fee is $8.50 per credit
hour.

Other Fees

There are NO special laboratory or library fees. Students are responsible for any College property which they damage or lose (such as
laboratory or shop equipment, supplies, library books, and materials).

 

Nonpayment of tuition and fees, or Other College Debts

A student's continued attendance at the College is dependent upon proper settlement of all debts owed the institution. Transcripts,
certificates, diplomas, or degrees will not be issued, nor will students be permitted to complete registration until accounts are cleared satisfactorily with the Business Office, Bookstore, or Library. Should the student fail to satisfy all due and payable amounts for tuition
and fees, College loans, College fines, or other debts owed the College, the College may initiate disciplinary action in accordance with
the College's Code of Student Conduct and Discipline Policy.

Tuition Refund

Students are eligible for a tuition refund if they drop classes or withdraw from the College on or before the announced date each
semester. The add/drop form or withdrawal form must be processed by the Admissions Office. The College publishes in each
semester's Class Schedule the dates during which a student may be eligible for tuition refunds. No refunds will be considered after
the announced date unless the student has encountered severe medical problems which relate directly to the individual student, or
in case of an administrative error by the College. Before any consideration can be made, the student must appeal to the Dean of
Instruction and Student Development, and then to the Dean of Financial and Administrative Services. The tuition refund policy and
the deadline dates are established by State policy.

Please refer to the College Calendar for the deadline for tuition refund for full semester courses. Classes of shorter duration may have
a different withdrawal deadline. Please contact the Admissions Office if you have questions.

Books and Materials

Students are expected to obtain their own books, supplies, and consumable materials. The approximate cost of textbooks for a
full-time student is $250 - $500 per semester.  

Senior Citizen Tuition and Fees Waiver

The Senior Citizens Higher Education Act of 1974, amended in 1977, 1982, and 1989 has established specific fee waiver provisions
for Virginia residents who have reached 60 years of age and wish to attend classes at a State-supported institution of higher education.

To be eligible for free tuition and fees for CREDIT COURSES, part-time or full-time, a person must meet the following criteria:

  • be 60 years of age or older;

  • be a legal resident of Virginia;

  • had a taxable income not exceeding $15,000* for Federal income tax purposes for the year preceding the year in which
    enrollment is sought;

  • be admitted to the College as a student.

To be eligible for free tuition for AUDIT OF CREDIT COURSES or for taking NON-CREDIT COURSES (not to exceed three courses
per term), a person must meet the following criteria:

  • be 60 years of age or older;

  • be a legal resident of Virginia;

  • be admitted to the College as a student.

Any senior citizen planning to enroll at the College should contact the Office of Admissions and Records when registering for classes
under the tuition waiver program. Paragraph 23-38.56 of the Senior Citizens Higher Education Act states in part "a senior citizen shall
only be admitted to a course in which enrollment is sought after all tuition paying students have been accommodated." If eligible senior
citizens wish to enroll in a course free of charge, they must wait until after the registration period for tuition paying students is over and
then register on a space available basis. If they wish to reserve a place in a class, they are welcome to register in the same fashion as
any fee-paying student. In doing so, the refund policy of the College shall apply the same as for any fee-paying student.

Note: *Income restriction subject to change. Contact the Admissions Office for more information.

Section 23-7.1 of the Code of Virginia provides that free tuition for State-supported institutions be granted to children of: (1) deceased or permanently disabled veterans of the armed forces, or (2) prisoners of war or persons missing in action; or (3) persons who have been killed in the line of duty while employed or serving as a law enforcement officer, a fire fighter, or a member of a rescue squad. To be eligible for such aid, the student must be between the ages of 16 and 25, and the parent must have met certain State residency requirements.

If you are eligible for the waiver of tuition and required fees under items (1) or (2) above, you must present a letter of certification from the State Division of War Veteran's Claims to the Dean of Financial and Administrative Services before tuition can be waived. Requests for applications should be directed to the Director, Division of War Veteran's Claims, Commonwealth of Virginia, 210 Franklin Road, S.W., Roanoke, VA, 24011. If possible, applications should be submitted at least four months before the expected date of matriculation.

If you are eligible for the tuition waiver under item (3) above, you must provide certification from the chief administrative officer of the law enforcement agency or the State Fire Marshall that the deceased parent was employed or serving as a law enforcement officer or fire fighter or a member of a rescue squad and was killed in the line of duty. This certification must be submitted to the Dean of Financial and Administrative Services so that a determination can be made on the request for free tuition and required fees.
