Tuition and Fees Policy

  • Minimum payment criteria must be met by the published due dates. Refer to SCC's Payment Policy for Summer, Fall and Spring Semester due dates and for details on the minimum payment criteria requirements and the Registration Cancellation for Nonpayment policy.
  • Agency funded students as well as students receiving federal and state financial aid are responsible for any balance remaining after their term award has been subtracted.
  • Monies owed to the college are subtracted first from financial aid allocations.
  • It is the responsibility of the student to ensure their agency authorization reaches the campus BEFORE the published due dates. This should be in the form of a guaranteeing document stating that the tuition, or a portion of the tuition, will be paid by the designated agency.
  • You will become obligated for all unpaid balances relating to courses for which you have registered (even if you are not actually attending the classes) unless you drop/withdraw from ALL your classes within the drop/withdrawal period.
  • A late fee of $50 is charged to students whose tuition is not paid in full or who have not enrolled in the Nelnet Business Solutions/FACTS Automatic Payment Plan by the 30th business day of the term. In addition, by the 30th business day of the term all Nelnet Business Solutions/FACTS Automatic Payment Plan Agreement balances should be equal to the student's SCC account balance. If a balance remains on a student's SCC account at the completion of their Nelnet/FACTS agreement, a $50 late fee may be charged. The late fee will also apply to resale activity.
  • Students who have any outstanding debts at the college will not be allowed to register for classes or obtain a college transcript.
  • A senior citizen (62 or older) will be charged based on the type of course. Refer to the SCC College Catalog for details.
  • Failure to meet minimum payment criteria will result in cancellation of all course registrations as required by MnSCU Board Policy. However, do not assume that the courses have been cancelled based on this policy. Certain payment criteria may have been met that prevented cancellation of the courses. It is the student's responsibility to drop courses that they are not going to attend. Individuals will be held financially obligated for those classes that are not dropped by the fifth day of the term. (Summer Session classes have a shorter drop period. Please refer to the Student Policies)

By completing registration for any semester, you agree to the financial responsibility for all charges on your student account. You promise to pay South Central College the full amount of the obligation by the due date. Furthermore, you agree to pay any and all costs, including collection, attorney, and litigation costs incurred by SCC in efforts to collect, should you default on your account charges.

Tuition and fee statements are not mailed. Students must monitor their student account online. To access account balance information go to the Current Students Web Page, E-Services and choose "MnSCU Account Login". Once logged in, choose "Bills and Payment" to view balance due by term or full account detail. Full Account Detail will allow you to review details about your tuition, fees, and other miscellaneous charges by term. Financial aid awarded but not credited to your account will not be available. Financial aid credited to your account and payments to your account are available. If you make changes to your class schedule, drop or add classes, the changes to your balance will be available online. Prior term charges and payments are also available and can be used for tax information.
