Course Cancellation and Liability
For students that register during the advance registration period for classes to be held either in the fall or spring terms, the payment is due by the published due date. For the fall, this is usually the first Friday in August and for the spring it is usually the first Friday in January. (Please check current publications for specific dates) In order not to be cancelled from your pre-registered classes, a student must have been deferred by the Financial Aid office, be paid in full, or have enrolled in the TIP ( Tuition Installment Plan) through the Bursar's office by the due date. Students that fail to meet one of the above criteria will be cancelled from all pre-registered classes. Cancelled students that re register will automatically be changed an additional $80.
First-time students as well as re-registering students that register for classes after the August or January due date, and whose bill is not covered by one of the above methods of payment, will automatically be charged $75 and placed in the colleges TIP (Tuition Installment Plan).
Please remember that it is the student's responsibility for payment even in instances of non-attendance, unless courses are officially dropped by the student during the published add/drop dates. The last date for dropping courses without liability is the last day of schedule adjustment.
It is important to note, that by registering for classes the student acknowledges liability to ECC for tuition, fees and any required collection costs or legal fees as outlined in the tuition and fee section of the college catalog. As noted above, failure to attend classes does not absolve a student from liability. In all cases, it is the student's responsibility to drop classes by the due date or they will be held liable for their classes.
