Registration for classes creates a financial obligation by the registrant to pay tuition and fees while constituting an understanding and acceptance of this responsibility. Students are expected to have made the necessary financial arrangements prior to enrolling for classes. Students who will receive financial aid must have documentation to verify pending receipt of financial aid. Immediate payment is expected upon receipt of their financial aid check. If a student does not qualify for financial aid, or if there is a balance after financial aid is applied to the student’s account, the student should pursue financing from outside sources such as family or local lending institutions. Students who fail to make arrangements in advance of the semester are responsible for making all payments due while a financial aid application is in process. Additional information regarding tuition and billing may be found on James Rumsey Technical Institute’s “Adult Tuition Payment Schedule” located in the main office. Bills are mailed to the billing address on file with the school office. It is the student’s responsibility to keep all addresses (local and billing) updated with the main office. Students who do not receive a bill are required to contact the administration at James Rumsey Technical Institute. Not receiving a bill is not an acceptable reason for not making a payment when due. The following types of financial aid are available: Pell Grants, WIA, Vocational Rehabilitation, limited scholarships, TRA/TAA funds, VA benefits, and Plato-alternative student loans.

Payment Instructions and Due Dates

All tuition and fees are due on or before the 1st day of each semester. Payment may be cash, check, money order, or credit card (VISA or MasterCard). If the total balance due is not paid at that time, the bill is considered delinquent. Students with delinquent bills will not be allowed to register for subsequent semesters nor will they receive grades, certificates, diplomas, or other student services.

Collection Efforts

Any student who has an outstanding balance whether it be an account receivable or an adjustment to financial aid balance, will be responsible for any additional costs incurred by James Rumsey Technical Institute associated with the collection of that balance. This balance includes but is not limited to collection agency fees, litigation costs, attorney fees, etc.

Return of Title IV Funds

The following is a list of the guidelines for the return of Title IV funds, including Pell Grants.

Tuition and fees are charged to the student’s account. Pell funds are credited to the student’s account. If a student withdraws, a calculation is performed to determine the amount owed the school and the amount to be returned to the United States Department of Education. Any money owed to the United States Department of Education is returned. Any money owed to the student is sent to the student. If students withdraw, drop, or are terminated from a program before completing 60% of the payment period, and they received a refund from the school, they may be required to reimburse the payment. If students withdraw, drop, or are terminated from class, any refund given to the students must be used to satisfy any debt owed to the school.
