Payment of Fees
All expenses and fees must be paid in full by August 10 for fall semester and January 10 for spring semester. The college will mail fall semester statements by July 15, and spring semester fee statements by December 1. These statements will include credits for financial aid if completed (except work-study, which is paid directly to the student) and the tuition deposit. Failure to pay the statement in full by August 10 or January 10, or file a payment program plan with Bethany by August 1 or January 1 will cause termination of classes, residence hall, and food service privileges.
Bethany realizes that individual student circumstances may not allow for lump sum payments by the due date. BLC has developed a monthly payment plan that allows the student and their parent(s) to distribute the annual cost over two four-month periods from August through November and January through April.
The student and/or parent(s) will authorize Bethany Lutheran College to deduct the student’s tuition and other educational costs from a checking/savings account or a debit/credit card. The student/parent understands the payment deductions will occur on the following dates:
- Spring 2013 - January 10, February 11, March 11, and April 10.
- Fall 2013 - August 12, September 10, October 10, and November 11.
However, the student/parent(s) understands they may discontinue the program at any time by contacting the Business Office at Bethany Lutheran College. Non Sufficient Funds (NSF) on accounts can cause termination of classes, residence hall, and/or food service privileges, depending on the amount paid and balance remaining. The processing fee for the monthly payment plan is $25 per semester (non-refundable). If a payment is received 5 days past the due date, a $10 fee is added.
If financial aid packaging cannot be completed prior to August 10 or January 10 due to tax filing issues, cash payment in the amount of $2,000 is required by August 10 or January 10. Subsequent payment of $2,000 will need to be made by September 10 or February 11 if financial aid package is still incomplete. If your financial aid package is not completed by October 10 or March 11, Bethany will terminate all classes, residence hall, and food service privileges, unless the remaining balance is paid in full. The college will withhold transcripts and all official college documents until a student’s account has been cleared.
