Tuition for the first enrollment period of the program selected is due by the first day of each module or term unless alternative arrangements are made with the Financial Aid Department.
Payment may be made with cash, check, credit card, or money order made payable to American Career College. Students are encouraged to make payments electronically on our secure student payment portal (http://www.tuitionoptions.com). Students may also make payments by visiting the Business Office on campus to make a payment in person. Additionally, check payments may be mailed to the respective campus and may take up to two (2) weeks for processing. Checks that are returned for non-sufficient funds will be assessed a $15 processing fee. If tuition payments by check are returned more than once for non-sufficient funds during the term of the enrollment agreement, all future payments must be paid in cash or by money order. Credit card payments may take up to three (3) business days to post to student account and student will be asked to sign an authorization form.
Two systems are used to process payments depending on the purpose of the payment. CampusVue is used to process payments such as application fee, down payment or term payments. CLA is used to process payments such as a tuition payment (tuition options) and miscellaneous fees (e.g., student would like to purchase an additional uniform).
Once the payment has been processed through CampusVue or CLA, the system will generate a receipt that will be provided to the student. In exceptional situations, a written receipt may be given. A student receipt is required each time a payment is processed.
ACC VA Tuition Payment Policy
Veterans Entitled to Educational Assistance under Chapter 31 and Chapter 33
American Career College permits any covered individual* to attend and participate in program-required courses beginning on the date the individual provides the campus Financial Aid Office a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance under Chapter 31 or 33 and ending on the earlier of the following dates:
ACC will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a covered individual borrow additional funds, on any covered individual because of the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement funding from VA under Chapter 31 or 33.
Note that this policy applies to the portion of tuition and fees expected to be paid for the term under Chapter 31 or 33. Covered individuals* whose educational assistance eligibility under Chapter 31 or 33 is less than the full amount billed for tuition and required fees each term or enrollment period may be required to remit payment or make other satisfactory arrangements to pay the difference between the amount of the student’s financial obligation and the amount of the expected VA education benefit disbursement.
*For purposes of this disclosure, a covered individual is any enrolled student who is entitled to educational assistance under Chapter 31, Veteran Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, or Chapter 33, Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits.
