Bill Payment, Due Dates, and Payment Plans
All statements will be sent to the student’s Adrian College email address. FERPA law does not allow Adrian College to add an email address other than the student’s to the statement. It is the student’s responsibility to add any additional email addresses, thus allowing their statements to be emailed to any other person(s).
Adrian College has partnered with Educational Computer Systems, Inc. (ECSI) to offer a monthly payment plan due on the 1st of August, September, October, November, and December for the fall semester and the 1st of January, February, March, April, and May for the spring semester. If you will be making a single payment for the semester’s full charges, payments are due on August 1, 2012, for the fall semester and January 1, 2013, for the spring semester. To make a one-time payment, please follow this link.
Payment plans can be set up by calling ECSI at 888-549-3274 or paying on line through https://www.ecsi.net/adrian, using a credit card or by check, or by mailing in your payment. MasterCard or Discover will be accepted. Visa will not participate through ECSI. By teaming up with ECSI, Adrian College is doing everything we can to make education more affordable for our students.
A $75 monthly late payment fee will be assessed by ECSI when the minimum payment is not received by the due date. If you have not set up a payment plan through ECSI and carry a balance, $75 monthly late fee will be applied to your student account through Adrian College for any outstanding balance. No late fee will be applied if the outstanding balance is due to work study that will be applied to the student account.
Any non current student with a past due balance will be subject to any/all collection costs and/or attorney fees necessary to collect the amount due. Students with a past due account will not be permitted to register for classes, have transcripts or diploma released until paid in full.
An additional $50 charge will be assessed if the student account contract is not signed and returned by September 1, 2012.

Class Withdrawals/Refunds, Tuition and Fee Adjustments (Tuition and Fee Liability)
All Students are required to read, understand, and abide by the following College deadlines.
A $100 Late Academic Registration Fee applies to all students who are not enrolled in at least one course before the first day of classes each semester.
The last day to WITHDRAW from or SWAP classes without any tuition liability is the Thursday of the First Week of classes (the “Add/Drop” deadline). Students who wish to withdraw for the semester must complete an official Withdrawal Request Form, which can be obtained from the Registrar’s Office. The form includes instruction on how to complete and submit the form for processing. A SWAP is defined as one or more course(s) switched for one or more course(s) of equal credits. If you reduce your number of credits to fewer than 12 credits for a semester, or completely withdraw from the College after the Add/Drop deadline, you will be responsible to pay tuition and fees pertaining to the dropped credits according to the schedule below.
Please contact the Registrar’s Office to complete the necessary paperwork for a Semester Withdrawal or a course SWAP.
When is the Last Date to Withdraw from Classes Without Incurring Tuition and Fee Liability?
The last day to withdraw from classes without any tuition liability is the Add/Drop deadline. This means that if you reduce your number of credits to fewer than 12 credits for the semester, or completely withdraw from the College after the Add/Drop deadline, you will be responsible to pay tuition and fees according to the schedule below.
Students who officially withdraw from the College or reduce the number of credits to fewer than 12 credits for the semester after the Add/Drop deadline are still responsible to pay tuition and fees according to the schedule below. The first day of classes, as scheduled by the College, shall be deemed to be the first day that classes are offered, as scheduled on the Academic Calendar.
Students who enroll for class(es) after the semester start date or start attending class(es) after the semester start date and then withdraw from classes are still responsible to pay tuition and fees in accordance with the Tuition & Fee Liability Schedule below. The exception is for withdrawals from class(es) that are defined by the College’s Registrar’s Office as late-start classes.
REMEMBER that YOU, the Student, are responsible for (a) knowing that you are registered for classes, (b) knowing the classes for which you are registered, (c) paying your billing statements in a timely fashion, and (d) understanding and following the correct procedures to withdraw from courses or credits.
The Tuition & Fee Liability Schedule is:
Tuition Ineligible for Refund
Tuition Eligible for Refund
Fees Ineligible for Refund
Through Thursday of the First Week of classes (the “Add/Drop” deadline)
Friday of the First Week of classes through the Second Week of classes
After the Fourth Week
During the 0% Ineligible for Refund period any refunds will be processed and charges removed for tuition and all fees. After the 0% Ineligible for Refund period tuition will be prorated according to the schedule, above, and all fees are due in full. After 100% Tuition Ineligible for Refund Students are liable for tuition and all fees in full. Students who register for courses and who do not file the appropriate Withdrawal Request Form or do not drop courses before the end of the Fourth Week of classes are liable for their full charges.
Withdrawals & Cancellations
IF YOU DECIDE NOT TO ATTEND ADRIAN COLLEGE IT IS YOUR OBLIGATION TO PROPERLY WITHDRAW THROUGH THE REGISTRAR’S OFFICE. NON-ATTENDANCE OF CLASSES DOES NOT CLASSIFY AS AN OFFICIAL WITHDRAWAL AND DOES NOT RELIEVE THE STUDENT OF HIS OR HER FINANCIAL OBLIGATION OR ENTITLE THE STUDENT TO A REFUND.
All students who are given permission to cancel his or her registration or who are withdrawing from the classes shall be liable for payments of tuition and all fees in accordance with the liability schedule. The last day to WITHDRAW from classes without any tuition liability is the Add/Drop deadline.
The process of withdrawing from Adrian College is a formal procedure which the Student has the responsibility to initiate. A “W” is recorded on the academic transcript. A student withdrawing shall be responsible for payment of tuition and fees in accordance with the Tuition & Fee Liability Schedule. The date recorded by the Registrar’s Office will be used as the official withdrawal date for tuition adjustment or refund purposes.
All adjustments or refunds of financial charges are based on the date the Withdrawal Request Form is officially received by the Registrar’s Office, not the date of the last class attended. Students must submit the completed and signed Withdrawal Request Form to the Registrar’s office.
No grade is recorded on the academic transcript for a cancellation. A Student who is given permission to cancel his or her registration shall be responsible for payment of tuition and all fees in accordance with the Tuition & Fee Liability Schedule.
Non-attendance / Non-payment / Dismissal
Non-attendance of classes WILL NOT cancel your registration, nor will it relieve you of your financial obligation, or entitle you to a refund. Failure to appropriately cancel registration with Adrian College may result in the assessing of additional administrative fees to the Student’s financial account balance.
A Student who is dismissed for academic or disciplinary reasons prior to the end of an academic term shall be liable for tuition and fees due for the term according to the Tuition & Fee Liability Schedule.
Financial Aid Implications
Federal regulations require the Office of Financial Aid to apply a formula established by the U.S. Department of Education to determine the amount of Federal financial aid a Student may have earned as of the date in which the Student’s withdrawal is processed by the Registrar’s Office. The amount of Federal financial aid returned to federal aid programs is determined by the amount of time the Student spent in academic attendance, but has no relationship to the institutional charges incurred by the Student.
Please consult with an advisor in the Office of Financial Aid before you officially change your enrollment status or withdraw from the College, as your financial aid may be impacted by any status changes.
Please see the Office of Financial Aid’s website for more information.
