Insufficient funds – returned items or chargebacks
A $25 service fee applies for any items returned (ACH, chargeback, stop payment) unpaid for any reason by your financial institution. Current classes may be dropped on the next tuition deadline and a student hold will be placed on your account.
In order to remove the hold, you must pay the full amount, including service fees, by cash or money order.
ACC refers unpaid amounts to a collection agency, which may assess further charges. You may be responsible for any resulting collection costs and attorney fees.
- Payment plan
ACC’s payment plan can help if you can’t pay your full tuition by the deadline.
- Financial aid
It is your responsibility to ensure your tuition and fees are paid in full by your tuition deadline. If you have NOT been offered and accepted aid to cover the full tuition and fees by your payment deadline, then you may be dropped from classes. See disbursement and refunds.
When to pay tuition
You must pay any outstanding balance at registration if:
- You have not yet received and accepted an award offer.
- Your registration bill exceeds your financial aid award.
- Your classes do not qualify for financial aid.
It’s important to confirm your financial aid has been paid by checking your billing statement online. Your classes will be dropped if your bill is not paid in full before the tuition deadline.
- Other payment arrangements
If your tuition will be paid by a sponsor ( for example, some other agency, your employer or a government agency), be sure they complete the authorization process before you register.
- Sponsorship agreement forms can be obtained from the Student Accounting Office (512) 223-1093, (512) 223-1091 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
- ACC must approve all third-party sponsorships
- Before registering, confirm with your sponsor that the sponsor agreement has been approved.
- If you register before the sponsor is approved you could be dropped from your classes
- NOTE: You are responsible to pay any amount not covered by the sponsor by the next payment deadline.
