Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to know before I register?
To register for the next semester, you must have a zero balance on your student account with the College. There are NO exceptions to this rule. Balances can be paid in person at the Student Accounts Office or the Student Services office. Checks can be mailed to our office, but until the payment is posted (usually in 2 to 3 days) you will not be able to register.
If you are paying off the previous semester's charges, the Student Accounts office will only accept immediate funds to pay off the previous semester charges (NO personal or business checks: only credit cards, cash or money orders).
At the time of registration, all students should be prepared to make payment or establish a payment plan.
Can I defer part or all of my tuition?
If you are unable to pay the total amount due at this time, Bucks offers a tuition payment plan.
What if my check is returned for insufficient funds?
Checks returned to the College for insufficient funds or stop payment will be assessed a fee in the amount of $25. You will be required to pay by cash, money order, or credit card if you have more than one returned check.
When can I expect my refund?
If you have dropped a class during the 100% refund period, 50% refund period, or 25% refund period, please note that your refund will be processed two weeks after the semester starts. Please allow at least one additional week for processing.
If your refund is due to financial aid, your student account is updated only when the Financial Aid Department receives the funds and updates your record. They, in turn, notify Student Accounts, which updates your billing record. The following week refund checks are generated.
You cannot pick up checks from our office. They are mailed on Thursdays.
What happens if I do not pay my balance in full?
If you do not settle your balance in full by the due date, you will not be permitted to register for additional course(s) or receive an official transcript. In addition, accounts not settled in full within 90 days of the end of the term will be placed with one of our collections agencies. If your account has been placed with an outside collection agency please contact them for questions regarding repayment of your Bucks student account balance.
