Office of Business Affairs

Barton College’s Office of Business Affairs, under the direction of the controller, oversees the daily business transactions of the College and manages the tuition payment plans.

Tuition Payment Information

Payments are due prior to the beginning of each term; however, the College offers extended payment options. Transcripts and diplomas will be withheld from students with outstanding financial obligations to the College. In order to register for a subsequent semester or term, the student’s financial account must be current.

Payment Options

Standard Payment Plan

The payment plan option offers you the flexibility of dividing the total amount due for the semester into five monthly payments due the first of each month. Fall semester payments begin August 1 and end December 1. Spring semester payments begin January 1 and end May 1. The payment plan fee is $40.00 per semester.

 

Summer Session Plan

The total of all amounts for the summer session, minus financial aid, is paid in two installments at the beginning and ending of the summer term. A payment plan fee of $20.00 is required.

 

Accelerated Professional Program (APP) Plan

The payment plan option offers you the flexibility of dividing the total amount due for the semester (Session I and Session II) into five monthly payments due the first of each month. Fall semester payments begin August 1 and end December 1. Spring semester payments begin January 1 and end May 1. The payment plan fee is $40.00 per semester. NOTE: If you register for only the second session, then your monthly payment will be based on the number of months left in the current payment plan.

Change in Enrollment Status

Students withdrawing from Barton College are required to complete the College’s withdrawal process. Withdrawal forms and information may be obtained from the Office of Student Success or the Office of the Registrar. Please note, the College uses the date the withdrawal process is initiated as the withdrawal date, not the last date of attendance.

A student who completely withdraws (including medical withdrawals) from any term will be refunded tuition, mandatory fees, board charges, and room charges based on the schedule below. Students who move out of campus housing will have their room and board charge adjusted using the refund schedule below, if exception is granted by the Vice President of Student Affairs and the Business Office.

Note: The “Bully Bucks” portion of the Meal Plan is non-refundable.

For billing and refund purposes, the Business Office does not recognize First Summer Session
and Second Summer Session. Tuition and Refunds are assessed for the entire Summer Session,
not individual sessions. Therefore, potential refunds will be calculated using the first day of the
First Summer Session as the first day of class. Withdrawals during the Fall and Spring Sessions
follow the traditional refund schedule.
