Affordable Care Act (ACA) Implementation Fee

Beginning Spring 2015 semester, students will pay an additional fee to cover the Affordable Care Act (ACA) implementation costs.  Beginning in January 2015, the ACA will require the University to provide insurance coverage for all employees, including adjunct faculty members and others not previously covered.  The fee will ensure that CCU can fully comply with the provisions of the ACA.  The fee will be $40 for full-time students and $4 per credit for part-time students.

 

Credit Card Policy

 When using a credit or debit card for transactions, a service fee is incurred. Some colleges and universities have discontinued accepting credit and debit card payments because of this. The University recognizes, however, that many students and families appreciate the convenience of using a credit or debit card for payment. Coastal Carolina University has been absorbing these charges, but will no longer do so because the funds associated with processing credit and debit cards have been paid out of tuition and other revenue, which reduces the dollars available for academic programs and services for all students. Therefore, effective December 3, 2013, all credit and debit card payments made by phone or online through WebAdvisor for student account balances, including tuition, fees, room/board, fines and other charges, will be subject to a percentage service fee of 2.7% charged to the individual card. The University will continue to accept VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and electronic checks, although there is no fee charged for electronic checks. The Office of Student Accounts will no longer accept credit or debit card payments by fax, but will accept cash, checks, money orders, and credit and debit cards in person.

All financial aid settlement refunds are now processed electronically by direct deposit. Direct deposit is the electronic transfer of funds into a checking or savings account. It is the quickest, safest and most efficient way to receive a refund. Students may use their checking or savings account or may use a parent's checking or savings account to receive their funds. The checking or savings account must be a U.S. account. Students should enroll through WebAdvisor. After enrolling in direct deposit, students must update their direct deposit enrollment information whenever their banking information changes.

Any credit on your account created by a Parent PLUS loan is refunded in the form of a paper check made payable to the borrowing parent and mailed to the permanent home address on file with the lender.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Short Semester Financial Aid settlements for classes that meet only once per week will be distributed on the 11th day of each term.  Please visit the Refunds/Cancellation Fees page for the refund schedule of these classes.

 

Account invoices are available on WebAdvisor in the Current Account Balance link under the Student Accounts/Financial Services menu in the Student portal. Please note that paper invoices will NOT be mailed. Payments must be made on time to avoid the risk of class cancellation.
