The Business Office
1. Pay in full. All tuition and fees are due in full by the first day of class each term. This includes any balance that will remain after financial aid is supplied.
2. Deferred payment plan. Details are available by calling the Student Accounts Representative at 219-473-4394 or 877-700-1900, ext. 394, or visiting the Student Accounts Representative in Room 276.
3. Tuition reimbursement policy. If an employer provides a student with tuition reimbursement and will pay Calumet College of St. Joseph directly for tuition and fees, the student should provide verification to the Business Office at the time of registration. Any amount that the employer will not reimburse to the college will be the responsibility of the student and is due on the first day of classes. The college will not wait for the student to receive his/her reimbursement in order to make payment on his/her account.
A two week period is required to clear all personal checks. Therefore, documents will be held until
the check is cleared.
Students will not be able to register for another term unless their account is paid in full. Such obligations include tuition and fees, bookstore charges, and library fines. Students who withdraw from the college with a balance due on their accounts must pay the balance in full or make payment arrangements.
Degrees, transcripts, and letters of honorable separation are withheld from those who have not settled their financial obligations to the College, including, if any, all collection fees, attorney's fees, and court costs. Again, a two week period is required to clear all checks.
Remittance should be made payable to Calumet College of St. Joseph by bank draft, personal check, money order, or credit card. The college accepts the Discover Card, Visa, and MasterCard. Payment can be mailed to Calumet College of St. Joseph, Business Office, 2400 New York Avenue, Whiting, IN, 46394, or paid at the Business office "drop slot."
Should the College refer the delinquent account to an attorney or collection agency, the student will be responsible for all collection costs to include court costs, interest, agency fee, and attorney fees incurred by the College in the collection of monies due.
Returned Check Policy
The return of a check issued to Calumet College of St. Joseph will result in a $50.00 service charge per check placed against the account of the student on whose behalf the check was presented. Each account will be allowed two (2) returned checks after which payment by check will not be accepted. All returned checks will be forwarded to the prosecutor's office if the amount of the check plus the service fee have not been paid within ten (10) business days of the non-payment.
Financial Aid Policy
Refunds and repayments for students receiving federal financial aid will be calculated according to
federally mandated guidelines. For more information and examples, go to the Financial Aid Office.
