All scholarship, veterans, and financial assistance recipients must enroll in the Financial Aid EZ Pay Payment Plan – even if tuition and fees are covered in full – because any change in enrollment status may result in decreased eligibility for financial aid. Students expecting financial assistance to pay their tuition and fees also must enroll in EZ Pay. 

Financial aid recipients will only be charged a fee for using EZ Pay if funds are withdrawn from the student’s bank account or charged to a credit card. As long as financial assistance is applied to the student’s account for the full amount owed, the student will not be charged a fee. If a student’s enrollment status changes after receiving financial aid and a balance is now due, the College will charge the $25 enrollment fee and initiate the payment plan process to collect the balance.  Financial aid recipients have the responsibility to meet their payment obligations, be aware of all deadline dates, and complete their financial aid application on time.
