Payments
All tuition and fee charges are due and payable on the day of registration. Any deferred payments or exceptions to rules on financial affairs must be approved by the Chief Fiscal Officer.

Self-supporting classes are not free for any student.

Any outstanding balances (unpaid fines, tuition, etc.) must be paid in full prior to registering for a new session. Library fines should be paid in the Learning Resource Center (cash only), and all other balances should be paid in the College’s business office in the administration building.

Payments can be made by cash, check, Master Card, Visa, Discover, American Express, financial aid, or 3rd party sponsorship. All forms of payment must be received by the Business Office to be officially registered.

Tuition Payment Plan
Cape Fear Community College now offers a convenient monthly Tuition Payment Plan .
Refund of Tuition
A 100 percent tuition refund will be made if the pre-registered curriculum student officially drops any/all classes prior to the first day of the College’s academic session/semester. Students are also eligible for a 100 percent tuition refund if the College cancels the class. Drops within the 75% refund period must be processed online through WebAdvisor/Self Service.

A 75 percent refund will be made if the student officially drops a class(es) during the period starting from the first day and ending on the 10 percent day of the course.

Classes beginning at times other than the first week (seven calendar days) of the semester

A 100 percent refund shall be made if the student officially drops from the class prior to the first class meeting. Students are also eligible for a 100 percent tuition refund if the College cancels the class.

A 75 percent refund shall be made if the student officially drops from the class prior to or on the 10 percent point of the class.

Students who have not attended at least once by the 10 percent date of the class will be dropped by the instructor as a “No Show” and not allowed to continue with the course.

Return Check Guidelines

Tuition payment made with a check returned by the bank will be considered nonpayment of tuition. Students will lose their classes or will not be able to attend classes until full restitution is made. Absences incurred due to nonpayment of fees will be counted in accordance with the College’s attendance policy.

A returned check processing fee will be charged in the amount of $35.00 for a paper check or e-check when payment is refused by the bank for any reason.

Company Sponsorship
When a North Carolina employer, other than the armed services, pays tuition for an employee to attend a community college, and when the employee works at a North Carolina business location, the employer shall be charged the in-state tuition rate. Submit the Company Sponsorship form with required documents. The form and documents must be submitted and approved prior to the first day of classes.
