Occasionally an individual course may have an additional fee, i.e., lab and/or materials fee. In each case, the Schedule of Courses will note a fee if applicable, and the course syllabus will state the fee. All tuition and fees are due and payable in full (in US dollars) upon registration.  Payment can be made by cash, check, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express). We encourage all students to pay via the student portal. Accounts must be cleared prior to any additional registrations.

AUDITS/NON-CREDITS

Auditing a course or being allowed to take a course for non-credit means a student has obtained permission to attend the course and is not enrolled for academic credit. Thus, audit or non-credit courses cannot be dropped nor refunds issued. Audited courses are not listed on transcripts.

PAYMENT OF ACCOUNTS

All tuition and fees are due and payable in full at the time of registration. Payment may be made by cash, check or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover). Students are encouraged to make payments via the student portal.

DEFERRED PAYMENT PLANS

Students may choose a deferred Three Payment Plan. The Three Payment Plan allows students to pay one-third of their balance at the time of registration with a second and third one-third balance payment at designated times during the semester that are set by the institution. There is a deferred payment fee when students choose a payment plan. Accounts must be cleared prior to the taking of final examinations.

OUTSTANDING BALANCES

A student’s account must be current by the end of each enrollment period. Students will not be permitted to register for courses in subsequent semesters if they have an unpaid balance on their account unless special permission is obtained from Student Accounts. Balances remaining on a student’s account at the end of the semester will incur a financial charge of 1.75% per month until paid in full. This is an annual interest rate of 21%. A student’s records, grades and transcripts will not be released while an outstanding balance exists. The King’s may report unpaid accounts to national credit agencies and solicit a collection agency to secure payment of delinquent accounts. Students will be responsible for the payment of all collection costs including attorney and court fees.

REFUND POLICY

Tuition refunds/credits are made for withdrawal from a course(s) when an official Schedule Adjustment (Drop/Add) Form is filed with the Registrar. Students may withdraw from a course and receive a full refund any time prior to the beginning of the course or during the first week of a fourteen-week semester. The date of withdrawal is certified as the date on which the Schedule Adjustment (Drop/Add) Form is filed with the Registrar (not the date of the last class attended). Failure to attend class does not constitute withdrawal. Students failing to properly withdraw from a course will not normally receive a refund.
