Summer 2015 Billing Information
 

 

Important Notice

Students become obligated and agree to pay all academic charges when they register for classes.  Charges including tuition, fees, room, meal plans, and other fees that may be assessed are due on or before the fourteenth day of the term.  Charges are subject to adjustment only to the extent allowed under Peru State College’s Withdrawal Policy.  Peru State College reserves the right to change current policies and procedures.

 

Also includes all enrollments for Online & Distance Education Courses.

 

Payment Deadlines

Summer 2015 term begins May 11, 2015 and ends August 7, 2015.

  • May 26, 2015 - May 11th class start date
  • June 22, 2015 - June 8th class start date

* Billing due dates are also posted in myPSC

 

Student Bills

Paper billing statements are not mailed, however, an online billing statement is available in MyPSC self-service at the end of each month.  It is the student’s responsibility to view their account charges in MyPSC and make payment by the published payment deadlines.  Students are responsible for payment whether or not they access their account information in MyPSC.  An email communication will be sent to the student’s campus email address as soon as the semester charges are available to view online.

 

Delinquent Accounts

If a student has not paid in full by the due date or signed up for a payment plan, a late payment fee of 2% of the unpaid balance will be assessed to the student’s account. In addition, an enrollment cancellation notice may be sent, which may include cancelling the student’s registration and removing the student from on-campus housing and/or meal plans. Past due balances will prevent registration for future classes, processing transcript requests, and assignment of the account to a collection agency, and possible legal action.

 

Educational benefits are exempt from discharge under bankruptcy unless “undue hardship” as established under the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 can be proven. In most cases, tuition and institutional receivables will not be discharged by bankruptcy.

Third-Party Billing

Peru State College accepts payments from outside sources that have formally agreed to pay tuition and fees for an eligible student.  These organizations include but are not limited to the Veteran’s Administration, Vocational Rehabilitation, National Guard, and Americorps.  Each student remains responsible for payment for all charges by the specified due date if the financial aid and/or third party process has not been completed.  Peru State College may assist students in completing the required documents, but the student is responsible to ensure that all documentation, requirements, and deadlines are met.

Payment Methods

Pay in full with:

  • Cash
  • Check
  • Online Bill Pay Through myPSC (VISA, MasterCard or Discover)
  • Credit Card by phone (VISA, MasterCard or Discover)
    402-872-2211

 

Payment Plans

Class start date May 11, 2015

 

Class start date June 8, 2015*

 

* A deferment fee of 1% of the total charges will be applied per semester

* A late fee will be assessed for delinquent payments after the due date

 

Book vouchers

Book vouchers are available to students whose “accepted” financial aid award amount exceeds the tuition, fees, room, and board charges.  The amount of the book voucher will be limited to the amount of the anticipated refund amount.  To request a book voucher, complete and submit a Book Voucher E-form located on the Business Office homepage, http://www.peru.edu/businessoffice/.  Students are encouraged to participate as early as possible. 

 

Financial Aid

Pending financial aid does not extend the payment deadline.  We suggest enrolling in a payment plan to avoid further late payment fees and begin making payments until the financial aid has been credited to the student account.

 

If a student receives federal financial aid awards based upon full-time status and then drops below full-time status, a portion of the federal financial aid may need to be returned to the federal government.  The student would be responsible for the repayment of the returned funds.  The same is true for any student who has received federal financial aid awards based upon the enrollment status at which they were awarded.  Please check with the Financial Aid office, 402-872-2228 or finaid@peru.edu if you have questions regarding how dropping a class or classes will affect your financial aid awards.

Student Refunds

The first financial aid disbursement of the summer term will occur on Monday, May 11th, for students whose enrollment begins on May 11th.  Financial aid will be disbursed on June 8th for students whose enrollment begins June 8th.  An email communication will be sent as soon as refund checks are available.  On-campus enrolled students may pick up refund checks at the Business Office.  Students whose enrollment is entirely internet based will receive their refund check by mail.  Students may also participate in direct deposit.

 

Direct Deposit

Direct deposit of student refunds is available for student participation.  The direct deposit process will expedite the receipt of funds, which will be deposited into bank accounts within 3 days of refund processing, and eliminates the possibility of lost checks through mailing or waiting in line at the Business Office.


To participate in direct deposit, log into MyPSC and navigate to the Student Account tab and click the “My Bank Info” link.  Students will receive email notification as soon as the banking information has been entered, edited, or deleted.

Dropped Courses

To receive full financial credit or a refund for dropping an enrolled course, you must drop your course by the following scheduled drop dates:

 

Semester/Term

Must Drop By This Date to Receive Refund

May 11th Start Classes Sunday, May 10, 2015
June 8th Start Classes Sunday, June 7th 2015

Withdrawal From College

(FOR STUDENTS CANCELLING THEIR ENTIRE ENROLLMENT AFTER THE START DATE)

 

Students who withdraw completely from college will receive prorated credit according to the following scheduled percentages:

 

Prorated Tuition Schedule

 
Withdrawal Date Percentage Refunded
1st Week 100%
2nd - 4th Week 50%

Summer workshops with shortened class lengths will not follow this same pro-rated schedule.

 

Warning - withdrawing from college may also affect your financial aid awards. If you have already received a refund from excess financial aid, you may need to repay a portion of the financial aid according to the federal prorating guidelines for a withdrawal student.
