Student Financial Responsibility Agreement
PAYMENT OF FEES/PROMISE TO PAY
I understand that when I register for any class at Brewton-Parker College or receive any service from Brewton-Parker College I accept full responsibility to pay all tuition, fees and other associated costs assessed as a result of my registration and/or receipt of services. I further understand and agree that my registration and acceptance of these terms constitutes a promissory note agreement (i.e., a financial obligation in the form of an educational loan as defined by the U.S. Bankruptcy Code at 11 U.S.C. §523(a)(8)) in which Brewton-Parker College is providing me educational services, deferring some or all of my payment obligation for those services, and I promise to pay for all assessed tuition, fees and other associated costs by the published or assigned due date.
I understand and agree that if I drop or withdraw from some or all of the classes for which I register, I will be responsible for paying all or a portion of tuition and fees in accordance with the published tuition refund schedule on the Brewton-Parker calendar. I have read the terms and conditions of the published tuition refund schedule and understand those terms are incorporated herein by reference. I further understand that my failure to attend class or receive a bill does not absolve me of my financial responsibility as described above.
All students should be in good standing with the financial aid and business office by the first day of class.
- Your student account is considered in good standing if, your room, board, tuition, and fees are paid in full; you have a pre-approved payment arrangement (approved by the Business Office) that has been paid up-to-date; or you have financial aid (already approved) sufficient to cover your account balance.
- Both international students and those whose Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) appeal is denied must pay in full by the first day of class or registration will be purged.
For students with an unpaid balance at the end of the fifth week of classes may result in:
- Cancellation of enrollment
- Denial of registration for future classes
- Denial of occupancy in a residence hall room
- Denial of the use of the college dining room, library, and all other college facilities
- No participation in playing or practicing with athletic teams.
Financial Hold: I understand and agree that if I fail to pay my student account bill or any monies due and owing Brewton-Parker College by the scheduled due date, Brewton-Parker College will place a financial hold on my student account, preventing me from registering for future classes, requesting transcripts, or receiving my diploma.
Late Payment Charge: I understand and agree that if I fail to pay my student account bill or any monies due and owing Brewton-Parker College by the scheduled due date, Brewton-Parker College will assess late payment and/or finance charges at the rate of 1.5% compounded monthly, or $25 fee, whichever is greater, per month on the past due portion of my student account until my past due account is paid in full.
Collection Agency Fees: I understand and accept that if I fail to pay my student account bill or any monies due and owing Brewton-Parker College by the scheduled due date, and fail to make acceptable payment arrangements to bring my account current, Brewton-Parker College may refer my delinquent account to a collection agency. I further understand that if Brewton-Parker College refers my student account balance to a third party for collection, a collection fee will be assessed and will be due in full at the time of the referral to the third party. The collection fee will be calculated at the maximum amount permitted by applicable law, but not to exceed 15 percent of the amount outstanding. For purposes of this provision, the third party may be a debt collection company or an attorney. If a lawsuit is filed to recover an outstanding balance, I shall also be responsible for any costs associated with the lawsuit such as court costs or other applicable costs. Finally, I understand that my delinquent account may be reported to one or more of the national credit bureaus
Method of Communication: I understand and agree that Brewton-Parker College uses email as an official method of communication with me, and that therefore I am responsible for reading the emails I receive from Brewton-Parker College on a timely basis.
Contact: I authorize Brewton-Parker College and its agents and contractors to contact me at my current and any future cellular phone number(s), email address(es) or wireless device(s) regarding my delinquent student account(s)/loan(s), any other debt I owe to Brewton-Parker College, or to receive general information from Brewton-Parker College. I authorize Brewton-Parker College and its agents and contractors to use automated telephone dialing equipment, artificial or pre-recorded voice or text messages, and personal calls and emails, in their efforts to contact me. Furthermore, I understand that I may withdraw my consent to call my cellular telephone using automated telephone dialing equipment by submitting my request in writing to the Director of Accounting or in writing to the applicable contractor or agent contacting me on behalf of Brewton-Parker College.
Updating Contact Information: I understand and agree that I am responsible for keeping Brewton-Parker College records up to date with my current physical addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers by contacting the Registrar. Upon leaving Brewton-Parker College for any reason, it is my responsibility to provide Brewton-Parker College with updated contact information for purposes of continued communication regarding any amounts that remain due and owing to Brewton-Parker College.
This agreement supersedes all prior understandings, representations, negotiations, and correspondence between the student and Brewton-Parker College, constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the matters described, and shall not be modified or affected by any course of dealing or course of performance. This agreement may be modified by Brewton-Parker College if the modification is signed by me. Any modification is specifically limited to those policies and/or terms addressed in the modification.
I understand that aid described as “estimated” on my Financial Aid Award does not represent actual or guaranteed payment, but is an estimate of the aid I may receive if I meet all requirements stipulated by that aid program.
I understand that my Financial Aid Award is contingent upon my continued enrollment and attendance in each class upon which my financial aid eligibility was calculated. If I drop any class before completion, I understand that my financial aid eligibility may decrease and some or all of the financial aid awarded to me may be revoked.
If some or all of my financial aid is revoked because I dropped or failed to attend class, I agree to repay all revoked aid that was disbursed to my account and resulted in a credit balance that was refunded to me.
I agree to allow financial aid I receive to pay any and all charges assessed to my account at Brewton-Parker College such as tuition, fees, campus housing and meal plans, parking permits, service fees, fines, bookstore charges, or any other amount, in accordance with the terms of the aid.
Federal Aid: I understand that any federal Title IV financial aid that I receive, except for Federal Work-Study wages, will first be applied to any outstanding balance on my account for tuition, fees, room and board. Title IV financial aid includes aid from the Pell Grant, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), Direct Loan, PLUS Loan programs. I authorize Brewton-Parker College to apply my Title IV financial aid to other charges assessed to my student account such as bookstore charges, service fees and fines, and any other education-related charges. I further understand that this authorization will remain in effect until I rescind it or the end of enrollment and that I may withdraw it at any time by completing the BPC Loan Change Form found in the Forms section of My Financial Aid in MyWeb.
Prizes, Awards, Scholarships, Grants: I understand that all prizes, awards, scholarships, and grants awarded to me by Brewton-Parker College will be credited to my student account and applied toward any outstanding balance. I further understand that my receipt of a prize, award, scholarship, or grant is considered a financial resource according to federal Title IV financial aid regulations, and may, therefore, reduce my eligibility for other federal and/or state financial aid (i.e., loans, grants, Federal Work Study) which, if already disbursed to my student account, must be reversed and returned to the aid source.
METHOD OF BILLING
I understand that Brewton-Parker College uses electronic billing (e-bill) as its official billing method, and therefore I am responsible for viewing and paying my student account e-bill by the scheduled due date. I further understand that failure to review my e-bill does not constitute a valid reason for not paying my bill on time. Student account information is available at myweb.bpc.edu.
If you believe your bill is incorrect, or if you would like more information about a transaction on your bill, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We must hear from you within 60 days of the bill that the item of concern first appeared. Please include in your email:
Your name, the student’s name and student ID #
The dollar amount of the suspected error
A description of the error and an explanation, if possible, of why you believe the error occurred.
You do not have to pay the amount in question while we investigate, but you are obligated to pay the portion of your bill that is not in question.
I understand that administrative, clerical or technical billing errors do not absolve me of my financial responsibility to pay the correct amount of tuition, fees and other associated financial obligations assessed as a result of my registration at Brewton-Parker College.
MINIMUM BALANCE POLICY
In accordance with the Minimum Balance Policy Statement of the College, no billing statements or account refunds less than $1 will be issued.
RETURNED PAYMENTS/FAILED PAYMENT AGREEMENTS
If a payment made to my student account is returned by the bank for any reason, I agree to repay the original amount of the payment plus a returned payment fee of $35. I understand that multiple returned payments and/or failure to comply with the terms of any payment plan or agreement I sign with Brewton-Parker College may result in cancellation of my classes and/or suspension of my eligibility to register for future classes at Brewton-Parker College.
If I decide to completely withdraw from Brewton-Parker College, I will follow the instructions at https://www.bpc.edu/academics/registrar which I understand and agree are incorporated herein by Reference.
