Tuition and Fees

Tuition

All tuition is due and payable in full at registration. Arrangements may be made, at the discretion of the Financial Services office, for students (and/or parents of students) to sign a Financial Plan to pay a portion of tuition and fees not met by scholarship, financial aid or other sources and arrange repayment terms for the balance.

Any payments not made by the scheduled due dates are subject to late fees. All arrangements for financial aid should be made well in advance of the beginning of the program.

Tuition is based on the number of credit-hours taken quarterly. Any student taking 12 credit-hours or more is classified as a full-time student. Any student taking less than 12 credit-hours is classified as a part-time student. 10 or more credit-hours is viewed as full time for tuition calculation purposes only for students enrolled in Program Groups 1, 2, 3, 5, 6 and 7 as outlined in this section.

Harrison College reserves the right to increase tuition at any point throughout the catalog year. Students not pursuing an academic credential are considered non-degree seeking students. Non-degree seeking students are not eligible for financial aid.

A student enrolling for a midterm start will typically be limited in the number of courses the student may attempt during that abbreviated quarter. Consequently, the student will be charged at a per-credit-hour tuition rate that applies to students taking twice the number of credits during a full quarter. For example, a student enrolling in a midterm start quarter who is taking six credit-hours will be charged at the 12 credit-hour rate for each credit-hour attempted during the midterm start quarter.

Tuition Freeze Program

Harrison College instituted a tuition freeze in 2007. A student who remains continuously enrolled in a program of study will not be subject to future increases in tuition. A student who changes majors or majors in more than one program, will be charged a consistent tuition rate as long as the student remains continuously enrolled. This assumes that the program change and/or second major are within the same Program Group as outlined in this section.

Students, who petition for reentry, having been withdrawn or suspended from the College, will be charged at the tuition rate in effect during the quarter of reentry. Harrison College reserves the right to rescind the Tuition Freeze Program in future catalog years for students not covered by the above policy.

Effective July 1, 2016

Tuition Adjustment Policy

Harrison College believes in a fair tuition adjustment policy. The College recognizes that situations occur over which the student has no control; however, the College has incurred a continuing cost in facility, space, personnel and equipment for each student enrolled.

No student is charged for any quarter beyond that in which the student has attended classes. A tuition liability is established once a student has attended classes.

Students who must withdraw or are suspended for failure to meet college standards, a withdrawal form must be completed with the campus president, dean or registrar. A percentage of quarterly tuition will be charged according to the following schedule:

Tuition Adjustment Schedule

Time of Withdrawal

Federal funds received during the term of withdrawal are refunded based on the number of days a student is in attendance, up through the 60 percent point in time of that term, per federal regulations.

Refunds shall be made within forty-five (45) days of the last day of attendance, provided the student has notified the College of his/her withdrawal. Otherwise, refunds shall be made within forty-five (45) days from the date the College determines that the student has withdrawn. In all instances, the refund will be based on and computed from the last day of attendance according to the College’s attendance records. The College encourages all students who must withdraw to provide notification of intent to withdraw to the dean or registrar. Refunds for students who do not begin classes shall be made within forty-five (45) days from the start of the term.

If a student has paid his/her tuition in full and finds it necessary to withdraw from college during a term in which the student has attended, the above tuition adjustment policy will be followed. Any credit balance on the student’s account resulting from the above tuition adjustments will be refunded. Refunds will be applied according to federal and state guidelines. Monies paid for books and personal supplies are nonrefundable. This policy applies to complete withdrawal from the College. It does not apply to withdrawal from individual courses.

South Carolina

The following Tuition Adjustment Policy is for distance education students who reside at a permanent address in South Carolina:

Harrison College believes in a fair tuition-adjustment policy recognizing both the reality that situations occur over which the student has no control and that the school has incurred a continuing cost in facility, space and equipment for each student enrolled. At Harrison College, no student is charged for any quarter beyond that in which the student has attended classes. A tuition liability is established once a student has attended classes. For any student who must withdraw or is terminated for failure to meet school standards, a withdrawal form must be completed with the campus president or dean. After classes begin, during the first 60 percent of the first term the applicant attends school, the College will refund to the appropriate parties a pro rata portion of fees charged, less $100, for the time the student actually attended, based on the last date attended. After the first program term, in the absence of mitigating circumstances, the College will only refund fees received for future terms. The College will make a refund, as provided above for students who withdraw in subsequent periods of enrollment due to mitigating circumstances. After the students first period of enrollment, a refund as provided in this agreement must be made for students who withdraw in subsequent period(s) of enrollment due to mitigating circumstances. Mitigating circumstances are those that directly prohibit pursuit of a program and which are beyond the student’s control (e.g., serious illness of the student, death in the student’s immediate family or active duty military services, including active duty for training).

Refunds shall be made within forty (40) days of the last day of attendance, provided the student has notified the College of his/her withdrawal; otherwise, refunds shall be made within forty (40) days from the date the College determines that the student has withdrawn. In all instances, the refund will be based on and computed from the last day of attendance according to the school’s attendance records. The College encourages all students who must withdraw from school to provide written notification of intent to withdraw. Refunds for a student who does not begin classes shall be made within forty (40) days of the start of the quarter. If tuition is collected before any lessons have been completed and if, after expiration of the seventy-two-hour cancellation privilege, the student fails to begin the program, no more than one hundred dollars shall be retained by the institution.

An Enrollment Agreement may be cancelled by submitting written notice within seventy-two (72) hours (until midnight of the third day excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays) after the enrollment contract is signed by the prospective student. The school shall promptly refund in full all tuition and fees paid pursuant to the enrollment agreement. Such refund shall be made no later than forty (40) days after cancellation. This provision does not apply where the student has already started classes. After expiration of the seventy-two hour cancellation privilege, if the student does not attend, not more than one-hundred dollars ($100) shall be retained by Harrison College.

If a student has paid his/her tuition in full and finds it necessary to withdraw from school during a quarter in which the student has attended, the above tuition adjustment policy will be followed. Any credit balance on the student’s account resulting from the above tuition adjustments will be refunded. Refunds will be applied according to federal and state guidelines. All efforts will be made to refund prepaid amounts for books, supplies and other charges unless the student has consumed or used those items and they can no longer be used or sold to new students or returned by the institution to the supplier as “new” merchandise. This applies to books and supplies purchased directly from Harrison College. The institution cannot guarantee refunds for books and supplies purchased by the student from a third party. This policy applies to complete withdrawal from the College. It does not apply to withdrawal from individual courses.

Guaranty Bond

Persons wishing to review the College’s guaranty bond may schedule an appointment with the campus president for that purpose.

Books and Supplementary Materials

Students taking courses in online and blended sections may elect to purchase hard copies at an additional cost from the campus bookstore if a hard copy of the e-book is available. Not all online or blended courses require e-books.

Individual textbooks may be required in more than one course. Students will receive these textbooks when they are registered to take the first course in which the textbook is required. Students are responsible for the cost of a replacement textbook should they no longer have access to the previously received textbook.

Students active in programs must purchase textbooks and supplementary materials for their courses. The College bookstore is offered as a convenient service to the students.

Students may opt-out of purchasing their required textbooks from the bookstore, however, remaining opted-in and purchasing textbooks and supplies through the Harrison College bookstore allows students to obtain all the resources needed to be successful in their program in one place, and helps to stabilize expenses each term. The College has negotiated special low prices on materials for students and the students get to take advantage of those discounted prices by participating fully. If a student chooses to opt out of purchasing textbooks and supplies through the Harrison College bookstore, the student must contact your Financial Aid representative.

The following is an approximate cost for books:

School of Business $300.00 Per Term  
School of Criminal Justice and Social Services $300.00 Per Term  
School of Health Sciences $300.00 Per Term  
School of Information Technology $250.00 Per Term  
School of Veterinary Technology $250.00 Per Term  
The Chef’s Academy Culinary Arts/Pastry Arts $195.00 Per Term  

Financial Clearance

Tuition and fees for the quarter are due and payable in full at registration. Details of payment options may be obtained from the Financial Services Office.

All students must be financially cleared before final registration. Financial clearance is defined as:

  • Payment in full for the current quarter.
  • A financial plan in place that is estimated to cover current costs in full.
  • Completion of appropriate paperwork required by the Financial Services office.

Students choosing to finance part or all of their education through a tuition payment arrangement must maintain a current payment status.

Students who do not comply with the above requirements may not be cleared to begin classes. In extreme circumstances, students may need to temporarily interrupt their education until appropriate payment arrangements are made.
