Monthly Payment Plan


In order to facilitate the payment of annual charges, Post University offers students a monthly payment plan.  These charges include tuition, room, board and other fees less any deposits and financial aid. A monthly payment plan agreement can be obtained from the Office of Student Accounts. An established and approved monthly payment plan for up to ten months requires payment be made by the 15th of each month.  Details of the Post University Monthly Payment Plan are forwarded to students in April.


Late Payments

Payment of fees is due by July 15th and December 15th, or monthly as determined in the monthly payment plan agreement. Students must pay their fees on or before the set due dates or they will be charged a late payment fee. If circumstances are such that payments cannot be made by the scheduled date, it is critical that the student contact the Office of Student Accounts to make special payment arrangements. These arrangements must be agreed to in writing between the student and the Office of Student Accounts no later than one week prior to the payment due date. An account that is not current will result in (1) denial of registration for courses (2) withholding of transcripts and degrees and (3) assessment of a late fee.


FAILURE TO PAY POLICY

If there are outstanding balances, students may not register for classes, receive grades, graduate, or receive transcripts of courses from the University until all amounts due the University or any affiliated organization have been paid. Any outstanding balances, along with all expenses, are subject to collection for as long as they are outstanding.

Exceptions to interest charged on open balances:

  1. Interest will not be charged if 100% of any student’s open balance is covered by financial aid, all paperwork has been completed, and aid is received within 45 days.
  2. Interest will be charged only on the difference between what is owed and what is covered by financial aid as long as all paperwork is complete.
  3. Interest will not be charged if students are using work-study funds or are employed as a student worker with the Residential Life Department to settle account balances and have completed the necessary payroll documentation for direct funding to their Post University accounts.
  4. Interest will not be charged if students have signed payment plans on file and continue to make payments in accordance with their agreements.

Monthly Statements

Monthly statements will indicate the open balance and activity on your account for the prior month. If you are on a monthly payment plan please follow the terms of the agreement. Any balance not covered by a monthly payment plan is due and payable within thirty (30) days.


Refunds

Since faculty and staff salaries are made in advance of course activities and the cost of the physical campus are fixed, Post University must have a limited refund policy.  Only after a student's written notice of withdrawal is received by the Registrar will a refund be considered. The date of receipt by the Registrar will be the official withdrawal date.  The Registrar will determine the period of attendance and the Office of Student Accounts will calculate the refund and/or repayments to the federal, state, and Post University financial aid programs.


Refund of Title IV Federal Aid

For students who withdraw and were Title IV recipients, the University calculates the return of Title IV funds to the federal government.  The return of Title IV federal funds is calculated on a prorated basis from the student's date of withdrawal.  The University will return on a prorated basis a student's Title IV financial assistance if withdrawal occurs before the 9th week (60%) of the semester.


Room Deposits

Room deposits are non-refundable. 


Cancellation, Withdrawal, Medical Withdrawal, Dismissal
