Information on how to pay your student account, apply Florida prepaid to your account, receiving and applying outside scholarships to your student account, and how and when refunds are issued.

Student Payment Information

The College’s Business Office oversees receiving payments for your student account, issuing refunds, applying Florida prepaid to your account, and receiving and applying outside scholarships to your student account.

Each term, payment for tuition, housing, meal plans, and other fees are due by the end of the second week of classes. The amount due is the sum of all charges less financial aid, loans and scholarships. Students who have a balance after the fee payment deadline are subject to a late payment fee and may have their registration cancelled. To re-register, they will need to pay the balance due, plus the late registration fee of $50 in addition to the late payment fee of $100.

The fee payment deadline is published on the Academic Calendar.

The Business Office must abide by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) which essentially states that a student’s account is private and can only be discussed with the students unless we have on-file a release form allowing us to speak to specific persons. Students must sign a release authorization form agreeing that parents/guardians may be apprised of financial account information by the Business Office.

The FERPA Release Form allows us to discuss your financial account either over the phone or in person with whom you designate while the Parent Contact Form provides us the necessary information of how to contact your designees.

NOTE: If a FERPA authorization form is not on file, then no information may be disclosed to anyone but the student,regardless of who pays the bills for the student.

A regular billing is done within 30 days of the start of each term Fall and Spring, and then again approximately 30 days into the semester. Fees are due by the deadline and can be accessed and paid through NewCLEIS.

Installment Plan

New College offers students a two payment installment plan. There is a $15 processing fee due with the first half of the balance due. The completed, signed and notarized Installment Plan Form must be returned to the Business Office along with the first half of the balance, the $15 fee prior to the fee payment deadline. The remaining balance is due by mid-term.


The date of financial aid and loan disbursement to accounts is not the same as the refund date!

Approximately one week to 10 days after financial aid and loans are disbursed onto student accounts by the Financial Aid office, any remaining credit balance on the student account will be refunded. It takes this time to determine eligibility and to check accounts for accuracy. After the initial refund run, subsequent refunds are processed on Wednesdays and deposited into your bank account on Friday

Refunds are reimbursed via ACH (direct deposit) directly into the checking or savings account that the student has designated on the Student Direct Deposit Authorization Form. A check can be issued, however we will process manual checks only twice a month once the initial refund run has processed. Refund checks not picked up within five business days will be mailed to your address on file.
