Tuition and Fees Policy
 
Tuition rates at Frank Phillips College are set by the Board of Regents of the college in accordance with the provisions of Texas statutes. Tuition rates are subject to change without notice by the action of the State Legislature or the Board of Regents.
 
Tuition and fees are due and payable in full before the first class day. Payment in full or an established payout plan (eg. eCashier) must be received by the Business Office before the first class day of the semester of the term. Cancellation of registration due to non-payment will occur after the close of business the day before classes begin. Should a student be removed from class rolls due to non-payment, the student will have to re-enroll with a late fee. Payment may be made by cash, check, money order, or credit card.
 
Returned Check Policy
 
Students must exercise care when paying the college by check. A $25 charge will be assessed for all returned checks. Students who have paid the college with a returned check will be notified by certified mail of the return and have 10 days to pay the check or the check will be turned over to the Small Claims Court for payment.
 
Refund Policy
 
Refunds are not automatically awarded. Students must complete appropriate forms to acquire authorized refunds. No refunds can be awarded until after the third week of classes. Processing refunds for the fall and spring semesters usually requires four to six weeks.
 
Tuition and fees paid directly to Frank Phillips College by a sponsor, donor, or scholarship shall be refunded to the source rather than directly to the student. Students who receive financial assistance should refer to the Student Financial Services section of the Catalog for refund information.
 
Students will be refunded 100% of their tuition and fees if a class is canceled by the college.
 
If a student withdraws from college prior to the first day of the semester, 100% of their tuition and fees will be refunded. A $10.00 change of schedule fee will be charged to add, drop, or change a class during the refund period.
 
Refunds are credited to the account associated with the student’s ID card.
