Course Cancellation and Liability
For students that register during the advance registration period (April 29 through August 2) for classes to be held in the Fall of 2013, payment will be due on August 2, 2013. In order to not be cancelled from all of your courses, a student must have been deferred by the Financial Aid office, be paid in full, or have enrolled in the Tuition Installment Plan (TIP) through the Bursar's office by August 2, 2013. Students that fail to meet one of the above criteria will be cancelled from all classes. Cancelled students that re-register will automatically be charged an additional $80.
First-time students as well as re-registering students that registers for classes after August 2, 2013, and whose bill is not covered by one of the above methods of payment, will automatically be charged $75 and placed in the colleges Tuition Installment Plan (TIP).
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 by the published add/drop date. The last date for dropping courses without liability is the last day of schedule adjustment. For the Fall of 2013, this date is Monday, September 9, 2013.
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 these classes.
