Fees

Payment Plan

For those students who are enrolled in credit courses and need their tuition divided into payments, the College has contracted exclusively with Heartland ECSI to offer a tuition payment plan. A payment plan is an interest-free, debt free way to spread tuition payments over a number of months. Plan participants will get a convenient monthly payment option at a low enrollment fee, if any. Students must have their payment plan established prior to the semester payment deadline. Contact the College’s Cashier’s office for more information on how to get your payment plan started.

Senior Citizens

Ohio residents over 60 years of age may enroll for regular credit courses at EGCC under certain conditions and not be required to pay tuition through the EGCC Senior Citizen Scholarship Program. The scholarship does not cover any fees, books or supplies. It only covers tuition. In order to participate in this program, Ohio senior citizens should contact the Financial Aid office.

Non-payment of Fees & Other Obligations

Official grade reports, transcripts, and diplomas will not be issued until the student has cleared all financial obligations with the Business Office or returned all overdue books. Students with outstanding debts or overdue books at the College will not be permitted to register for classes until obligations are paid in full. In addition, under Ohio Law, outstanding balances are turned over to the Ohio Attorney General for collection. SEE SECTION TITLED “DELIQUENT STUDENT ACCOUNTS”.

Fines and Returned Checks

For parking fines and requirements, see section titled “Auto Safety/Parking Restrictions”.

A fee of $20 per check will be assessed to any person whose check is returned by the bank for any reason. Returned checks will not be redeposited by the College. Only cash or certified checks will be accepted after a second returned check is received by the College.

Student Refunds

Students who are due refunds as a result of dropping classes for which they have paid will be mailed their refund check after the second week of classes for fall and spring semesters. The mailing of refund checks during the summer sessions will vary according to the length of the session.

Refund of Tuition

To receive a refund of all or part of the tuition paid for a semester or summer session, a student must have completed the drop process prescribed by the College. The date used in calculating the amount of fees to be refunded will be the date that the official completed student schedule change form is received by the specified office.

Refund of fees upon dropping from EGCC is as follows for 16 week semesters and 8 week Summer Session:

  Tuition Tuition

Delinquent Student Accounts

Any student registering at the College is reserving a space in those assigned classes and potentially limiting other students from enrolling in those classes. Students enrolled in classes must follow the college’s drop procedure in the time periods indicated in order to relieve themselves of the responsibility of tuition and fees for that semester.

Nonattendance in classes does not relieve tuition and fee obligations if the student does not follow the official drop procedure.

As an institution that is supported by state and local tax funding, the College has an obligation to taxpayers to collect all fees due the College. According to Ohio Revised Code Section 131.02, state supported institutions must certify their delinquent debts to the Ohio Attorney General for collection.

Students dismissed by Eastern Gateway Community College are not entitled to any refund of tuition and fees. Students are entitled to a full refund if the College cancels the course or does not permit a student to enroll or continue. Fees subject to refund are instructional, general, surcharge, and lab/materials/other course related fees.
