2017-2018 Graduate Studies Catalog

10 F INANCIAL I NFORMATION In order to provide students some security and predictability concerning the cost of education, Hardin-Simmons University guarantees that the tuition rate during the first tuition year (for example: the tuition year 2017 is June 1, 2017, through May 31, 2018) will not increase, as long as the student maintains full-time HSU enrollment during succeeding fall and spring semesters. This does not apply to enrollment in doctoral programs, intercollegiate courses or courses in the Patty Hanks Shelton School of Nursing or Logsdon Seminary. P AYMENT OF A CCOUNTS Registration is not complete until tuition, fees, room, and meals have been paid in full and/or satisfactory financial arrangements have been approved by the Business Office, which is located in the Student Financial Services area on the 2nd floor of Sandefer Memorial Building. All registrants must follow through with the financial commitments made at registration to pay all charges in full before advance registration for the following semester. Student transcripts will not be released for students who fail to meet this requirement. HSU Payment Deadlines Students must complete payment by 4:00 p.m. on the scheduled dates (see HSU university calendar) or the date of registration if after the first payment deadline. For the FALL and/or SPRING semesters only, there are two payment options: Option 1: Payment in full of any portion not covered by approved financial aid. See HSU university calendar. Option 2: Enroll in the HSU PAYMENT PLAN which is a four-payment plan through CASHNet of any portion not covered by financial aid. A $10 enrollment fee will be charged to enroll in this plan. A 2.75% fee will be charged for any credit card payments. A late payment fee of $15 will be charged if payments under the four-payment plan are received 5 days or more after the payment due date. A service fee of 1.5% per month (18% annual rate) is charged on any amount owed after October for the fall semester and after March for the spring semester, regardless of the payment plan or option you select. The Business Office accepts American Express, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover online through CASHNet. A 2.75% fee will be charged by CASHNet for any credit card payments. For the MAY TERM, SUMMER I, and SUMMER II semesters, payment in full of any portion not covered by approved financial aid must be paid by the scheduled date. See HSU University Calendar.
