**An Academic Instruction Fee will be charged for all Laboratory or other similar experiences.

This will be added to the normal tuition charge for that course.

A non-refundable tuition deposit of $100 will be required from all students matriculated in Culinary Arts and Nursing. A matriculated student is defined as one who has been formally accepted into a degree or certificate program. The President or his/her designee reserves the right to waive the fee in circumstances where the collection of the deposit is not feasible (e.g., late admits, financial hardship, obstacle to disbursing financial aid). The deposit will be applied to the tuition for the semester immediately following the student’s matriculation and will not be refunded even if the student withdraws during the designated full refund period or if the student fails to attend. The tuition deposit is not transferable to another semester unless an exception is made by the President or his/her designee.

Delinquent Account Collection Process

The following collection clause will be listed on all forms requiring the student's signature:

I agree that by registering for courses within the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH), I am financially obligated for ALL costs related to the registered course(s).  Upon a drop or withdrawal, I agree that I will be responsible for all charges as noted in the student catalog and handbook.  I further understand that if I do not make payment in full, my account may be reported to the credit bureau and/or turnedover to an outside collection agency.  I also agree to pay for the fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage of the debt up to a maximum of 35%, and all additional costs and expenses, including any protested check fees, court filing costs and reasonable attorney’s fees, which will add significant costs to my account balance.

Students who wish to return to Nashua CC will be required to prepay in full for one semester at the time of registration.

Third Party Billing

Where the employer, the VA, or other agency is guaranteeing both tuition and fees, such guarantee must be in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the company or agency.

 Refunds Policy

Students who officially withdraw from the College or an individual course by the end of the fourteenth (14th) calendar day of the semester will receive a 100% refund of tuition, less-nonrefundable fees. Classes that meet in a shorter format than the traditional semester will have 7 calendar days from the designated start of the alternative semester to withdraw for a full refund. If the seventh (7th) or fourteenth (14) calendar day falls on a weekend or holiday, the drop refund date will be the first business day following the holiday or weekend. Exception: students in courses that meet for two weeks or fewer must drop by the end of the first day of the class in order to get a 100% refund. All Federal Title IV funds (i.e. Pell, SEOG, Perkins Loans, Stafford Loans) are returned to the federal programs according to the rules and regulations mandated by the Department of Education.

Students registered for non-credit workshops must withdraw in writing at least three days prior to the first workshop session to receive a full refund of tuition and fees. In extenuating circumstances, the President (or designee) is authorized to offer alternative compensation in the form of tuition credits to students on a case-by-case basis. Tuition credit on a student account must be used within one calendar year from the date of authorization. All refunds require that students complete an official withdrawal form.

In accordance with Federal regulations, refunds for an amount less than $1.00 ($0.99 or less) will be forfeited.
