Any student who submits registration materials will be obligated for a percentage of the fees even if he/she does not attend classes unless the Registration Office is notified in writing prior to the first official day of classes that he/she wishes to cancel registration.
The University reserves the right to refuse to release to any student their transcript or degree for failure to return UTC property or pay any accounts due at the University.
Mocs Express Fee Payment
Mocs Express combines all fees, charges, fines, and credits into one statement. The University will mail a Mocs Express statement to all students who register during the Priority Registration period. Students who owe a balance may write a check or authorize a MasterCard or Visa account to confirm attendance by the deadline date. Students who do not owe a balance or have a credit may simply confirm attendance by returning the bottom portion of the Mocs Express statement by the deadline.
The University accepts cash, checks, MasterCard, and Visa for payment of fees. Fees may be paid on line with MasterCard or Visa by accessing the UTC web site at www.utc.edu, click on Current Students, then click Pay Fees and select Pay Fees on Line.
Students should act early to avoid delays. Various offices, including the Bursars Office, Financial Aid, Housing, and the Registration Office often experience heavy traffic and high volume of telephone calls which may cause delays..
Every student who has registered prior to the deadline date is responsible for meeting the deadlines for paying or confirming classes.
Failure to pay fees or set confirmation of attendance with the Bursars Office by the published deadline will result in automatic cancellation from all classes. This applies to all students regardless of sources of funds and includes those whose fees are billed, deferred, waived, or paid with personal funds, including financial aid and graduate assistantships. All students whose registrations are cancelled will be required to reregister and pay appropriate fees, including late fees.
There is only one cancellation date each semester. Students who register after the cancellation will be held responsible for all fees and will risk receiving failing grades for all classes not dropped prior to the first day of classes in the semester.
The deadlines for the 2006-2007 academic year are:
For fall 2006, the deadline is 5 p.m. on August 10, 2006;
For spring 2007, the deadline is 5 p.m. on December 15, 2006.
Under the prepayment plan, students and/or parents choose the academic year expenses they wish to prepay, including room, board, tuition, fees, or books. The expenses can be prepaid over a period of eight months with the first installment due by May 10. The remaining seven monthly installments are payable on the tenth of each succeeding month. Contact the Bursars Office for details.
Deferred Payment Plan
A student who is in good financial standing with the University, and has an anticipated source of funds, may defer up to 50 percent of fees. A $10 extension fee and at least 50 percent of fees are due by the deadline date. The balance will be payable on the 45th calendar day of the term. An additional $50 will be assessed if the installment is not paid on or before the due date. Financial aid recipients must first apply their aid toward payment of fees, regardless of source of funds. This plan is not offered for the summer terms.
Dorm Payment Plan
Housing students may choose to participate in the dorm payment plan. Payment equivalent to 50% of rent plus a $10 extension fee charge is due and payable at fee payment. The remaining balance is paid in on the 45th calendar day of the term. A late payment charge of $50 will be assessed on each monthly installment not paid on or before the due date. Financial aid recipients must first apply their aid toward payment of fees, regardless of source of funds.
Refund of Fees and Additional Charges
General Refund Information
All refund periods are based on the official first day of classes for the University, as published in the catalog and on the UTC Website. No refund is due for courses that are dropped unless the charge for the remaining courses plus the percentage charge for the courses dropped is less than the maximum semester charge for tuition and maintenance fees.
All charges and refunds will be made to the nearest even dollar. All charges are subject to subsequent audit and verification. Errors will be corrected by appropriate additional charges or refunds.
Approximately six weeks after the beginning of the semester, (except summer) a statement of account will be sent to students who owe additional fees or fines.
