Tuition and Fees

Special Fees (Non-Refundable)

Annual Notification: All career and technical education courses and programs are offered at Pierpont regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, or disability.

Payment of Tuition and Fees

Students attending Pierpont are offered an alternative to payment in full at the time of registration. Please contact the Student Account Office at 304-333-3739 if you would like to join in a payment plan. If payment is not received before the due date, a $50 late fee will be added to the account. The registration process is not complete until all fees have been paid in full. Fees can be paid with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card, and Electronic Check. Students receiving financial aid must apply one hundred percent of their aid prior to the payment plan.

Registration is not completed until payment of tuition and all applicable charges such as residence hall rent, board, and fees have cleared. A late payment charge of $50 will be assessed on the first day of class; a $25 charge will be assessed on each check returned for “insufficient funds” unless the student can obtain an admission of error on the part of the bank. The Office of Student Services shall declare the fees unpaid and registration canceled until the check has been redeemed and the additional charge paid. The Office of Student Services will not release student records for any student who has a delinquent financial obligation.

All outstanding amounts resulting from nonpayment of tuition and fees are the responsibility of the student. Withdrawal from school, officially or unofficially, will not cancel any financial obligation already incurred. Additionally, failure to pay all financial obligations may result in debts being turned over to a collection agency.

NOTE: The term “resident” refers to classification for fee purposes only. See end of this section for resident classifications.

All fees are subject to change. Please see our homepage for the most current tuition and fee information. From the main home page, select Financial Aid; next select Explore Costs; then select Tuition and Fees to locate this information.

Please remember that bills are no longer being sent via mail, billing information, reminders and important notices are sent to each student’s institutional e-mail address.

Refund Policy for Tuition and Fees

A student who withdraws from ALL classes shall receive a refund of fees, excluding special fees, in accordance with the following schedule:

Complete Withdrawal through First Week 100% Refund
Complete Withdrawal from First Week up to 10% of the Term 90% Refund
Complete Withdrawal from 11% up to 25% of the Term 75% Refund
Complete Withdrawal from 26% up to 50% of the Term 50% Refund
Complete Withdrawal after Completing More Than 50% of the Term No Refund

Refunds are determined from the first day of the school term. The student’s official withdrawal date is certified by the Student/Enrollment Services. Students who have paid in advance and cancel schedules prior to registration day will receive full refunds. Students who do not officially withdraw from all classes after Late Registration (add/drop week) will not be eligible for any refund of tuition and fees. An excessive withdrawal fee may be charged after 4 courses have been dropped each semester. Return of Title IV funds may reduce the tuition and fee refund resulting in the student owing a balance to the institution. The institution is responsible for notifying the student and recovering the funds.
