Tuition and Fees

View/Print PDF

Fees are established by the Board of Regents for the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (ConnSCU).  This listing is intended to help estimate the costs of attending the University. Students will be responsible for any fee increase that the Board of Regents for the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities authorizes up to the first day of classes for 2017-2018.

FULL-TIME AND PART-TIME STATUS

Only those students who have been admitted to an undergraduate program may be classified as full-time students. To maintain full-time status, an undergraduate student must be registered for at least 12 credit hours.

Part-time undergraduate students are those registered for fewer than 12 credit hours per semester.  Part-time undergraduate students registered for at least 9 credits are 3/4 time; at least 6 credits are 1/2 time; at least 3 credits are 1/4 time; and less than 3 credits are less than 1/4 time.

Up to the end of the Add/Drop period, a student's status may change from full-time to part-time or from part-time to full-time based on registered credits.  Financial aid recipients should contact the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, as a change in status and/or registered credits may impact the student's financial aid award, which could result in the student owing funds to the University and/or government.  Students should consult the Refund Policy below for the impact on charges for the term.

RESIDENCE STATUS

Students admitted to the University are classified as Connecticut residents or out-of-state residents according to Connecticut General Statute Sec. 10a-29 (Determination of Student Status) and the policies of the Board of Regents for Connecticut State Colleges and Universities. Essentially, Connecticut General Statute Sec. 10a-29 provides that an emancipated person who provides evidence of domicile in Connecticut is eligible for classification as an in-state student for tuition purposes. Residence in this state for a period of not less than one year is required for the establishment of a new domicile in this state.  The domicile of an unemancipated person is that of his/her parents. Incoming freshmen and transfer students are to consult with the Admissions Office regarding questions on their classification as Connecticut or out-of-state residents.

International students with temporary United States government status (i.e., visa holders) cannot establish permanent residence in Connecticut for tuition purposes. Therefore, international students on visas are considered out-of-state residents.

Whenever the University deems it necessary, the student may be requested to submit an affidavit to certify residence status in accordance with regulations established by the Board of Regents for Connecticut State Colleges and Universities. The failure to disclose fully and accurately all facts relating to the student's residence status shall be grounds for disciplinary action.

A student classified as an out-of-state resident who feels that he or she qualifies as a bona fide resident of Connecticut may request a change of classification from the Registrar. Procedures on changing residence status may be found on the Registrar's office website at SouthernCT.edu/registrar.

PAYMENT OF TUITION AND FEES

Bill Statements:

Students and authorized users will receive an email notification when a new statement is available for viewing online.  Paper statements are not mailed out.

Payment Due Dates:

Fall semester bills are due July 15, and spring semester bills are due December 15 or upon registration if the due date has passed.  Payment for summer, winter, or spring break intersession is due upon registration.  

To establish proper payment arrangements by the bill deadline, the Student Accounts Office must receive one or a combination of the following to cover the balance in full:

  • Financial aid award, including scholarships, posted to the student's account.
  • Personal or third party payment on account.  
  • Signed payment plan agreement with down payment. 

Please visit the Student Accounts website for more information.

Past Due Accounts:

An account is considered past due once the due date has passed.  Student accounts may become past due for various reasons (i.e. inadequate or returned financial aid, missed payment(s) on payment plans, the addition of unpaid charges/courses after the bill due date, etc.) 

If a student does not pay the amount due by the due date, a hold may be placed on the student's account restricting course registration, access to grades, and transcript requests; the student may not be allowed to move into a residence hall until the payment is made; and the student may be subject to class schedule or housing assignment cancellation due to non-payment.  To be reinstated, payment of a $100 non-refundable re-registration fee plus the original account balance in full is required, though availability of the original class schedule and housing assignment is not guaranteed.  Past due accounts are also subject to a $50 late fee after a ten (10) day grace period.

Past Due Payment Plan:

Students may request a past due payment plan with the Student Accounts, although the hold described above will remain in place until the account balance is paid in full.  The penalties for late/non-payment above also apply to past due payment plans.  Failure to make a required payment plan installment within thirty (30) days of any due date will result in the student being withdrawn from the past due payment plan and the account will be sent to a collection agency without further notice.

Collection of Debt:

In an effort to collect past due debt, the University will send collection letters and emails to students at their last known address.  To avoid account referral to a collection agency, students must pay the balance in full, or set up a past due payment plan within 30 days of the notice.  For accounts referred to a collection agency, students are responsible for all collection fees, the balance will be reported to a national credit bureau(s), and the University will no longer accept direct payment--in that the student must make all payments to the collection agency before conducting any further business with the University.

REFUNDS

Regulations established by the Board of Regents for the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities govern the refund of tuition and other fees at Southern Connecticut State University. Full-time students who wish to receive a refund must withdraw formally from the university. Full-time students are not entitled to a refund for courses individually dropped. Part-time students who wish to receive course refunds must formally withdraw from the course(s). It is the student's responsibility to withdraw online through their Banner Web account.

For the purpose of this policy, a school term may be defined as the period of time with specific start and end dates, during which the University holds classes. Multiple terms of different lengths may exist within any given semester or intersession. The amount of refund is based on the date the student withdraws from the term, not on whether the student attended classes or on how many classes the student attended.

For students who withdrew/dropped from a course(s) or the university, please see the Refund Policies below for the time periods where a cancellation of charges may be applicable. These refund policies exclude the effect of the return of financial aid and veteran benefits due to withdrawal, which may then result in the student owing funds to the University, the government, or both.
