** All International Students are required to enroll in adequate medical insurance including medical evacuation and repatriation coverage. Warner Pacific College will automatically enroll all international students in the Student Secure Budget Plan. Information about the health plan (which has coverage for injuries incurred while participating in sports), can be found online at Price is estimated based on 2014-15 monthly costs (plus the application fee) and varies based on the age of the student, if you are over 24 years of age. Refer to the website after June 1, 2015, for the monthly price. In order to waive the insurance requirement, students must provide Warner Pacific College’s Office of Student Financial Services with proof of similar or greater coverage and information on benefits and limits of the plan before August 1 of each year of attendance.

Payment Policies

Student Accounts
Charges to students for all tuition, fees and housing are recorded in an individual account based on the student identification number assigned upon initial enrollment. Grants, scholarships, and loan payments are recorded as credits against those charges as they are received. The balance due, if any, shown on the student’s account statement must be paid in full by August 1 for the fall semester and December 15 for the spring semester prior to moving into student housing, and upon receipt of any subsequent monthly statements. Payments in excess of charges will be refunded to the student unless the student requests the funds be held on the account as pre-payment of future charges. All credit balances must be refunded to the student at the end of each academic year, regardless of student request. The student may return the money to their student account for the next academic year charges by making a payment on their account.

If a student adds or drops courses, an official change of registration form must be submitted. Fees and charges are adjusted for adds and drops within the allowed add/drop period at the full semester rate(s), with related adjustments in financial aid. Students considering a drop below full-time enrollment status are encouraged to discuss the consequences for such a decision with Student Financial Services personnel.

When students register for classes, they incur charges and are responsible for payments of these charges whether or not they attend. Warner Pacific College, a non-profit institution of higher learning, in establishing any student account, extends credit to students solely for the purpose of financing their education.

Books and Supplies
All traditional undergraduate students are allowed to charge their student account up to a set amount for books and supplies through the WPC Bookstore through the first week of classes in the current semester. Amounts allowed may vary by semester and are based on the amount budgeted in the student’s cost of attendance. Any amount above the actual or anticipated credit on the student’s account is the student’s responsibility and must be paid by the deadline on the next statement. Students may opt-out of charging to their account by paying directly in the WPC Bookstore or purchasing elsewhere.

Payment Plans
Balances remaining after all financial aid, third party payments, and personal payments are applied require a payment plan. Traditional Student Payment Plans are computed on the academic year ending in April (typically nine months, maximum of 12 months). A pre-authorized plan is available to automatically deduct a monthly payment from a checking or savings account, work study payroll earning, or a debit or credit card. A non-refundable enrollment fee equal to 5% of the amount financed will be charged to the student account and included in the payments upon plan approval.

Third Party Plans
The college participates in programs with third parties such as employers, government agencies, and embassies provided written documentation confirming enrollment in the third party’s reimbursement program is submitted to the Office of Student Financial Services by the semester due date. All fees and charges not covered in the arrangement are the responsibility of the student and are due prior to the first day of classes. Delayed employer reimbursements may result in service charges to the student.

Unpaid Account Status
Full payment, or an approved payment arrangement, is required prior to moving into housing or attending classes. A student is placed on unpaid status if satisfactory payment arrangements are not made by the first day of the semester. Failure to contact the Office of Student Financial Services may result in a voided registration. Unpaid balances, including those created or increased after initial clearance, may be subject to a 1.5% monthly service charge (18% annually).

Outstanding Student Account Balances
Failure to meet arranged payment plan terms may result in plan termination. Delinquent monthly accounts and any deferred payment arrangements incur service charges. Continuous nonpayment may result in an administrative withdrawal from enrollment and may prohibit the student from registering in subsequent semesters and obtaining official and unofficial transcripts until such obligations are satisfied. Prior to the end of enrollment, graduating students with balances greater than $200 must enroll in an approved automatic payment plan to cover the balance remaining in order to participate in graduation ceremonies. Diplomas and transcripts are not released to any student until their student account balance is zero. In addition to withholding transcripts, records, or diplomas until all college expenses are satisfied, Warner Pacific reserves the right to preclude students with past due balances from representing the college in public activities or events. Students experiencing legitimate extenuating circumstances relating to their financial situation are encouraged to meet with Student Financial Services personnel for counseling.

Refund Policy
If a student withdraws from all courses or is dismissed from the College, a pro-rated amount of tuition and fees, except applied music fees and housing related fees, will be refunded based on calendar days attended. After 60 percent of the term has passed, no refund will be granted. Any refund may be reduced by the tuition deposit, room reservation deposit and meals consumed. Additional charges may arise from the terms and conditions of a residential lease.

Special Procedural Provisions
Federal Title IV student aid is disbursed to pay educational expenses while enrolled. When a student withdraws prior to the completion of 60 percent of the semester for which aid was awarded, a pro-rated portion of the aid must be returned to the federal government.

Federal regulations require a written institutional policy for the refund and repayment of federal aid received by students terminating enrollment for any reason during a semester for which payment has been received. Refund calculations are performed using the Department of Education’s Title IV refund procedure to determine the refund percentage.

The institution is responsible for the return of funds to appropriate federal sources based on the refund percentage identified. The student is responsible for repayment to the institution or the federal government for any balance created by the withdrawal.

As required by Title IX and 34 CFR §106.9, Warner Pacific College does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs and activities.
