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 for Fall and Spring Semesters and in two easy installments for the Summer Semester.

In Fall and Spring, your first payment will include one-fourth of your fees plus a $15 service charge and should be set up by the fee payment deadline. The balance is divided into three monthly payments. For Summer, your first payment will include one-half of your fees plus a $15 service charge and should be set up by the fee payment deadline. Your subsequent payments will be given to you at the time you set up your payment plan and they are available in Self-Service, Student Finance.


If you drop your classes, a refund will be issued if you drop a class by the 15th calendar day of the semester.  After that date, no refunds for the class are offered. Refunds of instructional, general, laboratory and technology fees will be made according to the following schedule. You can drop/withdraw a course, online through Self-Service/Student Planning on the myClarkState portal. You can also drop in person at the Records and Registration Office in the Sara T. Landess Technology and Learning Center, Room 114; the Greene Center Student Services, Room 202; or at the Bellefontaine Campus at 2280 State Route 540, Bellefontaine.

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.
