Tuition and Fees
Tuition and fees are assessed based on the number of credit hours of enrollment. The tuition schedules below do not include lab fees related to specific courses. To view a full listing of tuition and fees click the link below.
Tuition and fees due by the published due date in the academic calendar. The student is responsible for payment of tuition, fees, and all charges incurred. It is the responsibility to drop courses if you do not plan to take them in the current term.
Payments accepted in the form of cash, check, American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and/or Visa.
Payments may be made:
If you are unable to pay your tuition and fees by the due date for a term, you may enroll in the Payment Plan to pay tuition and fees (not including books) in three equal installments. The first installment, equal to one-third of the total amount of deferred tuition, is due on or before the first day of classes. The second and third installments, each equal to one-third of the total amount of deferred tuition, are due during the following two months. Specific due dates are noted on a Deferred Tuition Payment Plan Agreement, issued through the Business Office, that the student must sign upon making their first payment. If the final deferred payment is not made by the scheduled date, credit for current coursework will not be awarded, and registration for the following term will be canceled.
Financial aid will be applied to your student account if you have qualified for assistance and have completed the requirements of the aid. If you are expecting financial aid and your account does not have an award listed, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 740.699.5154
Third Party Sponsored Students (Military/Tuition Assistance/Employers)
If your tuition and fees will be either partially or fully paid by a third-party sponsoring organization (your company, the military, or other sponsor), you must provide billing authorization to the Business Office by the due date of your account charges. This authorization must not be contingent upon the student receiving a specific grade. Billing authorization must be on company letterhead listing the student’s name, the term in which they are paying, and what expenses they will pay (tuition/fees/books). A new billing authorization is required each term. It is the student’s responsibility to monitor their account status regularly. If the sponsor does not cover the total charges, it is the student’s responsibility to pay the balance owed. Non payment by the sponsor, for whatever reason, becomes an immediate liability to the student.
Tuition and fees are due by the published due date in the academic calendar. If financial responsibilities have not been met, a student will be placed on financial hold. Students on financial hold are not eligible for registration for future terms and are also prevented from obtaining transcripts. In addition, students whose accounts are not paid in full at the time of graduation will not receive a diploma or any other certification of program completion.
Students who have unanticipated financial problems during a term should resolve them with the help of the Business Office and the Financial Aid Office to avoid further collection efforts.
Delinquent Accounts/Outstanding Balances
As a state-supported institution of Ohio, Belmont College has an obligation to collect all fees due the College. Section 131.02 of the Ohio Revised Code requires all state agencies to refer all outstanding balances greater than 45 days of billing date to the Attorney General of the State of Ohio for final resolution. Once a delinquent debt has been forwarded to the Attorney General’s office for collection efforts, the balance will accrue interest at a rate established by the Ohio Revised Code and calculated on all outstanding balances. In addition, delinquent debts may incur costs including but not limited to charges, fees, interest, and penalties.
