  • Cash – Legal Currency of the United States
  • Third Party Payments – Payments made by third party vendors via letters, purchase orders or invoices must be presented in person to any campus business office, each semester, in order for your account to be updated. Students are liable for any unpaid Third Party charges. Students are liable for any unpaid balances.

An installment payment plan (IPP) is available at any Campus Business Office and on the SOS Web based registration system under the Student Account Suite. When initiating the IPP the student will be required to pay 25 percent of eligible tuition and fees. There is a $25 setup fee which is prorated over the initial and future installments. The IPP will have three additional 25 percent payments on specified dates for each term. The College assesses a fee of $25 for each late payment. Through the Student Account Suite, students may establish an automatic payment from their selected method of payment using a credit card, checking or savings account. Students who utilize the IPP must follow the regulations for withdrawals and refunds. Students who withdraw from or add one or more classes still must pay the installments on time. The system will recalculate any changes to the future dated installments. No installment payment plan is available for books, supplies or cash advances. The Financial Aid section describes other forms of financial assistance. Installment Plans must be paid in full before another installment plan can be initiated.

Receiving refunds for withdrawal from one or all courses does not relieve the student of making all payments under the IPP when due and payable. Students electing to use the IPP are subject to regulations regarding withdrawals and refunds (refer to the refund page for details). See the San Jacinto Community College District Catalog available online at www.sanjac.edu/apply-register/overview/course-catalogs regarding “Refund Policy” and “Withdrawal” for further information.

An individual who uses a credit card to pay tuition or fees authorizes the College to communicate with the credit card issuer and/or financial institution for the limited purpose of verifying information related to use of the credit card at the College, such as verification of account number, verification of a transaction, or verification of a student’s signature.

San Jacinto College will not be responsible for multiple holds being placed on your credit card or debit card by your bank or the card issuer.

 

Currently enrolled students who are delinquent in repaying a loan, are responsible for a returned check, or have failed to pay appropriately and on time any other debts to San Jacinto College (not including library and traffic fines ) will receive warning notices informing them that they must pay their debts by a certain date or be withdrawn from all classes. If they do not pay by the designated date, the College may withdraw them from all classes, and they may not be reinstated during that term. Students are liable for any unpaid Third Party charges, rescinded Scholarships, Exemptions or Financial Aid.

Students must pay all debts—including tuition, fees, fines, returned check penalties, College generated loans and restitution for loss of or damage to college property before they may re-enroll, receive a diploma, or have a request for an official transcript honored.

In the event of failure to pay the Installment Payment Plan (IPP) or Financial Aid Short Term Loan (FASTL) at its maturity, and if the same is placed in the hands of an attorney or collections agency, the student shall be responsible for all expenses and expenditures, including cost of attorney and/or collection services incurred, protecting the College’s interest, rights and remedies on the Installment Payment Plans or Financial Aid Short Term Loan or returned checks.

Delinquent accounts sent to a collection agency may be reported to the credit bureau.

The College charges a late fee of $25 for late payment of any IPP’s or FASTL’s. The College assesses a $30 processing fee for each stopped-payment or returned check. Returned checks include electronically converted checks that have been rejected by the College bank. An individual who has had a check returned must then pay the College by cash, cashier’s check, money order or credit card.

A student who is in default on a government student loan for attendance at San Jacinto College may not receive an official academic transcript or diploma unless the student has made six consecutive voluntary monthly payments on the defaulted loan.
