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.
I am due a refund. When can I expect it?
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 the Student Accounts office, which updates your billing record. The following week refund checks are generated.
Under no circumstances are students allowed to pick up checks from our office. They are mailed on Thursdays.
CBCS collection agency
If your account is not paid in full by the close of the previous semester, your account will be sent to our collection agency, CBCS. You must contact them, as soon as possible to make payment arrangements. Their number is 1-888-488-5351. Please note that you will not be able to attend BCCC in the future, or have official transcripts sent until your obligation to BCCC is paid in full.
