I understand that each term when I register for any class at Lower Columbia College
I accept full responsibility to pay all tuition, fees and other associated costs assessed
as a result of my registration.
I understand I am responsible for paying all tuition and fees even if my planned source
of funding ends up not covering my charges. If my funding source has additional requirements
like a separate application or student loan documents, I understand that I am responsible
for completing those requirements by their deadlines.
The College routinely drops students for nonpayment after the tuition due date. However,
I understand I cannot count on the College to drop me for nonpayment. If I do not
plan to attend a class, I understand I must drop it online or submit a drop request
to email@example.com, or I will be responsible for paying all charges, and may receive failing grades
on my transcript.
I understand that if I withdraw from a class, I will be responsible for paying all
or a portion of tuition and fees in accordance with the published tuition refund schedule
as provided in the Lower Columbia College academic catalog: https://lowercolumbia.edu/publications/catalog/welcome/refunds/
I have read the terms of the published tuition refund schedule and understand those
terms. I understand that my failure to attend class does not absolve me of my financial
responsibility as described above.
I understand that it is my responsibility to monitor my student account activity online
via ctcLink (https://gateway.ctclink.us) and pay the charges by the published due dates. Not receiving a bill does not absolve
me of my financial responsibility.
As a courtesy, the College may send reminder emails regarding balances. I understand
that the College uses the email address I designate as “preferred” in ctcLink as an
official method of communication with me, and that I am responsible for reading the
communications I receive via email in a timely manner. Lower Columbia College does
not send billing statements to students unless requested. To request a billing statement,
I understand that if I fail to pay all charges by the scheduled due date, LCC will
place a financial hold on my student account, preventing me from registering for future
classes or receiving my diploma.
I understand that my Financial Aid award is contingent upon my continued enrollment
and attendance in each class upon which my financial aid eligibility was calculated.
If I drop any class before completion, I understand that my financial aid eligibility
may decrease and some or all of the financial aid awarded to me may be revoked.
If some or all of my financial aid is revoked because I dropped or failed to attend
class, I agree to repay all revoked aid that was disbursed to my student account and
resulted in a credit balance that was refunded to me.
I authorize Lower Columbia College and its agents to contact me at my current and
any future phone number(s) or email address(s) regarding my delinquent student account.
I understand I may withdraw my consent to call my phone by submitting my request in
writing to Lower Columbia College or to the applicable contractor or agent contacting
me on behalf of Lower Columbia College.
I understand and accept that if I fail to pay my student account, my past due account
will be assigned to a collection agency and may be reported to credit bureau organizations.
I further understand that I am responsible for paying collection agency fees and charges,
in accordance with Washington State law.
