Payment Plan

^ TOP

In a continuing effort to assist the families of our students, Southeastern University offers the Southeastern University payment plan as an alternative to standard payment arrangements. The university has partnered with Tuition Management Systems (TMS) to administer the payment plan.

Families are able to pay university-billed expenses in regular monthly payments. Parents determine how much of the expenses they wish to pay in equal monthly payments. Tuition Management Systems can also aid in budget planning.

No Finance Charges

The Southeastern University payment plan provides the benefits of a monthly payment plan without finance charges. The only cost is the enrollment fee to cover administrative expenses.

Finance Charge

^ TOP

A 1.25% finance charge is added monthly (15% annually) to any unpaid balance more than 30 days old unless the student is enrolled in the Tuition Management Systems payment plan.

Late Payment and Termination

^ TOP

A student may not complete the registration process for a new semester or receive a transcript until the student account has been satisfactorily settled. If a student account is delinquent and it becomes necessary to submit the account to a collection agency, all charges and fees incurred for the collection process will be added to the outstanding balance and will adversely affect the student’s credit report.

Payment Requirements for Graduation

^ TOP

A student will not be allowed to participate in graduation ceremonies unless the student account balance is paid in full, including any charges for after-graduation course work.

Payment Requirements for Special Programs

^ TOP

Students enrolled in Directed Study courses or special study programs, not a part of the regular semester, are required to make payment in full by the first day of classes. Internships are charged an internship fee and hourly tuition.

Summer School

^ TOP

Summer school students are required to pay for summer school charges by the first day of classes.

Food Services

^ TOP

Students living on campus are required to choose a meal plan. If no choice is made, the 10-meal plan will be selected for you. Meal plans are not transferable, usable beyond limits indicated, or refundable for meals not used.

Withdrawals

^ TOP

When a student submits written notice of cancellation to the Admission Office or the Office of the Registrar prior to the first day of classes, a full refund (100%) of institutional charges is made. If a student withdraws from the university on or before the add/drop deadline after classes have begun, a full refund (100%) of tuition and room are made.  Pro rata refunds on meal plans are calculated as follows: cost per week times the number of full weeks remaining equals refund.

When official withdrawal forms are filed in the Office of the Registrar after classes have begun, refunds of tuition and room and board are made during the first nine weeks.  Expenses and financial aid will be prorated based on Federal Title IV Funds Guidelines.   The amount of federal financial assistance that a withdrawing student earns is calculated on a pro-rata basis.  Once the student has completed more than 60% of the payment period, all federal financial assistance is considered to be earned and the student will be responsible for 100% of charges.

Fees are nonrefundable after the first week of classes.

Return of Title IV Funds

^ TOP

The law (34 CFR 668.22) specifies how Southeastern must determine the amount of Federal Student Aid (FSA) that a student has earned when withdrawing from school. The FSA programs covered by this law are: Federal Pell Grants, Stafford Loans, PLUS Loans, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG), Federal Perkins Loans and in some cases, certain state grant aid. The amount of financial assistance that a withdrawing student earns is calculated on a pro-rata basis. Once the student has completed more than 60% of the payment period, all federal financial assistance is considered to be earned.

A student’s withdrawal date is:

  • The date the student officially notifies the Registrar of his/her intent to withdraw; or
  • The midpoint of the period for a student who leaves without notifying the institution; or
  • The student’s last date of attendance at a documented academically-related activity.

The percentage of Title IV aid earned shall be calculated as follows:

  • Number of calendar days completed up to and including the withdrawal date divided by total calendar days in the payment period with an allowance for any scheduled breaks that are at least five (5) days long.
  • The percentage of semester completed shall be the percentage of Title IV aid earned by the student.
  • The percentage of Title IV aid unearned shall be 100% minus the percent earned.

When a student receives federal financial assistance in excess of earned aid, the school returns the lesser of institutional charges multiplied by the unearned percentage, or Title IV federal financial assistance disbursed multiplied by the unearned percentage.

The student returns any remaining unearned aid not covered by school charges. Loan funds are repaid in accordance with the terms of the promissory note. Any grant amount the student has to return is a grant overpayment, and arrangements must be made with the Southeastern University Student Financial Services Office to return the funds.

The school must return the unearned aid for which the school is responsible by repaying funds to the following sources, in order, up to the total net amount disbursed from each source.

  1. Unsubsidized Stafford Loan
  2. Subsidized Stafford Loan
  3. Perkins Loan
  4. PLUS Loan
  5. Pell Grant
  6. Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
  7. Other Title IV programs

The student (or parent for PLUS) must return unearned aid for which the student is responsible by repaying funds to the following sources, in order, up to the total net amount disbursed from each source, after subtracting the amount the school will return. Amounts to be returned to grants are reduced by 50%.

  1. Unsubsidized Stafford Loan
  2. Subsidized Stafford Loan
  3. Perkins Loan
  4. PLUS Loan
  5. Pell Grant
  6. Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)
  7. Other Title IV programs
