Financial Responsibility Timeline
Beginning October 3, 2016 those entering their third quarter if a nursing student, second quarter if a medical assisting student, will be required to meet with the Financial Aid Office within the first week of the quarter. By that time, the financial aid office will have the entire picture of all financial aid received, and aid yet to come, and be able to provide the student with a final balance owed (provided student successfully completes remaining classes of their program). The student will then be responsible for producing official documentation stating the method that will be used to pay the balance (i.e. Sallie Mae, Wells Fargo, Private Pay, etc.). The student must produce this documentation within 3 – 4 weeks of the aforementioned meeting.
The student has until the fifth (5th) week of the last quarter of their program to produce payment for the balance of their account. In the event payment is not provided, the student will not be permitted to attend class or clinical until such time as this responsibility is fulfilled.
The following documents will also be withheld until the student’s financial obligation is complete:
- Official Transcripts
- Documents necessary for NCLEX, MBLEX, or NHA Certification Exam.
Once the balance is paid in full, all documentation will be released.
Important Notice – FERPA
In order for the financial aid office to discuss financial aid information with a spouse, family member, etc. You will need to fill out a FERPA Form granting the office permission to do so. Failure to add other parties to this form for records release means that the office will only be able to discuss these matters with you personally.
