Pennsylvania Highlands Community College reserves the right to change tuition and fees without prior notification before the beginning of any academic year. All charges are due in full by the tuition due date unless other arrangements have been made with the Student Accounts Office. If you plan to change your registration, check the refund schedule or contact the Student Accounts Office to see how your billing will be affected. If you have been awarded financial aid, you should also meet with someone from the Financial Aid Office to see how changes in your registration will affect your financial aid award. Collection costs may be added to any defaulted student account balance. Defaulted account balances will be placed with an outside collection agency and will incur additional costs and/or legal fees. Accounts of graduating students must be paid in full prior to the release of diplomas.
Returned checks, for any reason, will be assessed a returned check fee.
