Student Account Services

All tuition and fees are due and payable at the time of billing. Students desiring financial assistance should contact the Financial Aid Specialist. See Financial Aid for a description of available assistance. All Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences tuition and fees are subject to change at the discretion of the College. 

Billing Services

Tuition and fees are due and payable at the time of billing unless arrangements have been made with the Director of Student Services. All College charges and credits for each semester are consolidated into one account for each student. The Bursar issues bills each month of the semester. Bills are mailed to the student’s home address unless otherwise requested. It is the student’s responsibility to notify the Student Services Department of the correct mailing address. Failure to receive a bill will not affect financial responsibility. Checks should be made payable to Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences and mailed or presented to:

Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences

Who gets the College bill?
The College bill is sent to the current address unless the student changes the destination of the bill. Students may update their address or change the destination by completing a change of address form in the student services department or online through the student portal.

Can parents receive the College bill?
Yes; to do this, the students should change the destination of the bill. The instructions are provided on the billing screen. All other correspondence from the College will still be mailed to the student’s current residing address.

Deferred Payment Program

The College offers a “Deferred Payment Plan” for all semesters. Students wishing to set up a deferred plan must complete the Installment/Deferment Plan form and return it to the Bursar’s Office by the Due Date on the original billing. Payments are to be made in four equal payments due the 15th of each month. There is a $25.00 non-refundable set-up fee that is assessed each semester. There will be a $10.00 late fee charged for each late payment. Questions about the Deferred Payment Plan should be directed to the College Bursar at (309)779-7700.

Refund Policy

If a student has completed registration and withdraws from class(es), tuition fees will be refunded according to the date the Add/Drop Form is received in the Student Services Department as outlined below. In the event the College cancels a class, 100% of all monies paid for the course will be refunded.

A 100% refund of tuition in a semester will be given if a licensed physician submits a statement recommending that the student withdraw from all their classes for medical reasons. A College Withdrawal Form must be completed. A reduced load is not acceptable. The physician statement, along with a signed Add/Drop Form, must be submitted in a timely fashion no later than the beginning of final examinations for the term enrolled.

It is very important to be aware of the Refund Policy. The Refund Policy varies by institution in which the courses are offered; therefore, students should check the Refund Policy for that Institution.

Refund Schedule

After the 100% refund period of the course, any drop from a course becomes part of the student’s permanent academic record and is recorded as a “WP” (withdrawal passing) or “WF” (withdrawal failing). A student may withdraw from a course through the 15th week of the semester (for 16-week classes). The instructor must approve any withdrawal after this date. If the class meets less than 16 weeks, the Student Services Department should be consulted regarding withdrawal. If the student stops attending a course without officially withdrawing, the student may receive an “F” or be withdrawn administratively by faculty. If a student never attends a course in which they are enrolled, the faculty may drop a student because of non-attendance or non-participation in an online course during the first two weeks of a course during a standard 16-week semester.

The responsibility for dropping a course rests with the student. Withdrawal or non-attendance may result in loss of financial aid. A student is financially responsible for tuition and fees for all classes not officially dropped by the appropriate refund date. If a withdrawal request is sent by mail, the date the request is received by the College will determine the percentage of the refund. No refunds are granted if a student is dismissed for disciplinary reasons.

Every attempt will be made to issue authorized refund checks by the end of the fifth week of classes. Questions concerning refund eligibility and exceptions to this policy are referred to the Student Services Department and questions concerning amounts refunded are referred to the Bursar. Refunds are processed by the Bursar and will be made payable to and mailed to the student. When a student owes money to the College, it is College policy to deduct that amount from the tuition refund. These financial obligations may include past due tuition and fees, returned checks, fines, or other obligations.

Return of Federal Financial Aid

If a student completely withdraws during the semester after federal financial aid payment has been received, the student may be required to return a portion of the federal financial aid awarded. The federal aid formula requires a return of funds if the student received assistance from the Pell Grant, Supplemental Grant, or Federal Direct Loan and withdrew on or before completing 60% of the semester. The calculation is based on the percentage of the semester completed. The portion of federal aid to be returned is equal to the number of days remaining in the semester divided by the total number of calendar days in the semester. Sample calculation and a complete explanation of this policy is available in the Student Services Department.

Reservists Called to Active Duty

Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences will allow withdrawal from courses without penalty for military reservist students who are called for active duty. Tuition will remain on the students’ account as a credit until semester hour credit for the course is awarded. Students will be allowed to return to the program of study upon return from active duty as courses become available. The College supports faculty in enabling reservists, who are called to active duty and who have substantially completed a course, to complete such courses without losing the time and effort they have already invested, when possible. The College is committed to assisting students as they transition to and from active duty. Students needing additional support services are encouraged to discuss their needs with the Director of Student Services.
