Delayed Payment Plan
Clark State has an alternative to the lump-sum payment of college fees to help ease the burden of paying tuition costs all at once. Clark State's Student Delayed Payment Plan lets you pay in four easy installments.

Your first payment will include one-fourth of your fees (rounded to the nearest dollar) plus a $25 service charge and should be paid by the fee payment deadline. The balance is divided into three equal monthly payments. If you are registering after the fee payment deadline, you will need to make your first payment when you register. Please remember that the second payment will be due one month from the first fee payment deadline.


Refunds of instructional, general, laboratory and technology fees will be made according to the following schedule. All drops or withdrawals must be in writing and are effective on the date received by the Records and Registration Office.

Refunds are not issued for late fees, auxiliary services fees or Delayed Payment Plan service charges. For certain programs, liability insurance is required to be purchased. For these programs, a lab fee is assessed for this coverage. The coverage will remain in effect until the expiration of your insurance contract.

Refund Appeal
A student dropping a class after the published date to drop with a refund may complete a "Request for Exception to Refund Policy" form. This form must be accompanied by acceptable documentation and turned in at the Cashiers Office. As a rule, refunds are only granted in such cases as withdrawals for incapacitating medical conditions, death in the immediate family, natural disaster, such as fire or flood or Clark State error. Exception forms are available in the Cashiers Office.
