All fees are payable at the time of registration each semester. Registration dates and payment due dates are listed in a schedule of classes published prior to the beginning of each semester. Student schedules are deleted if fees are not paid by the applicable due date. Registration is incomplete until all fees are paid and no student may be admitted to classes without having met all financial obligations. Students whose fees are paid by an outside source must ensure that all appropriate paperwork from the paying agency is on file in the Office of Financial Aid prior to the last day to pay for early registration.

There is a $30 charge for any check returned to Northeast State. A student who has not redeemed a returned check for fees within 10 days after being notified by the Business Office will be administratively withdrawn from school. Receipt of three bad checks from any person will result in that person becoming ineligible to make payments by check thereafter. No student may re-enroll, graduate or receive a transcript or grades until all financial obligations to Northeast State are met. All charges are subject to subsequent audit. Errors will be corrected by refund or additional charge. The Business Office is located on the first floor of the Pierce Administration Building at the Northeast State campus in Blountville. Regular office hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., (423) 354-354-2511. Please refer to the fee section of the current semester Schedule of Classes for dates and times of extended Business Office hours during the registration period. Cash, checks, money orders, Mastercard, and Visa are accepted. Please call the Business Office at (423) 354-2511 with any questions concerning payment of fees.

There is no maximum maintenance fee or out-of-state tuition fee charge for summer semester or intersession courses. All fees are calculated on the per hour charges per credit hours taken.

**Students are classified as resident or non-resident by the Office of Admissions and Records for the purpose of assessing tuition charges. The definition of residency as determined by the Tennessee Board of Regents will apply. A student once classified as an out-of-state student will continue to be thus classified unless a change of legal residence is established by evidence other than presence as a student. The burden of proof of all conditions pertaining to residence is placed upon the student, including the responsibility for submission of documentation required by Northeast State. If there is any question as to in-state residency at the time of registration, the student will be classified as out-of-state and will be charged out-of-state tuition. Information about residency classification may be obtained from the Office of Admissions and Records. Students have the right to appeal the assignment of residency status to the Vice President for Student Affairs.

Refunds

 ^ TOP

General Refund Policy – Northeast State will refund a portion of the maintenance and out-of-state tuition to any student who officially drops, withdraws, or is dismissed from a course(s) within the drop/withdrawal deadline. Official withdrawal date for calculating refunds will be based on the date the withdrawal form is received in the Office of Admissions and Records. Refunds are disbursed at the end of the refund period and will be mailed. Refer to the Schedule of Classes published each semester for specific refund periods.

Refund amounts will be calculated per the following provisions:

  1. One hundred percent (100 percent) of maintenance fees, tuition, and other registration fees will be refunded for classes canceled by the institution.
  2. One hundred percent (100 percent) of maintenance fees, tuition, and other registration fees will be refunded for withdrawals processed through the last day prior to the first day of classes.
  3. One hundred percent (100 percent) of maintenance fees, tuition, and other registration fees will be refunded in case of death of a student.
  4. The basic refund for withdrawals or drops during regular terms (fall and spring) is 75 percent of maintenance fees and tuition only from the start of classes through the fourteenth calendar day. From the 14th day up to 25 percent of the length of the term, the refund will be 25 percent of maintenance fees and tuition only. There is no refund after the 25 percent period ends.
  5. For summer sessions and other short terms, the 75 percent refund period and the 25 percent refund period will extend a length of time proportionate to the 75 percent and 25 percent periods of the regular terms. Exact dates are published in the Schedule of Classes.
  6. A full refund (100 percent) is provided to students who are compelled by Northeast State to withdraw when it is determined that through Northeast State’s error they were academically ineligible for enrollment or were not properly admitted to enroll for the course(s) being dropped. In each case, an appropriate official must certify in writing that the provision is applicable.
  7. When a course is included in a regular term’s registration process for administrative convenience but the course does not begin until later in the term, the 75 percent/25 percent refunds will be based on the particular course’s beginning and ending dates. This provision does not apply to classes during the fall or spring terms which may meet only once per week. Those courses will follow the same refund dates as other regular courses for the term.
  8. In those cases where an institutional refund of tuition and fees occurs, the application of those funds shall be in accordance with Institutional Policy 04:36:00, Application of Refund Due to Drops and/or Withdrawals. This policy is located in the Student Financial Aid Handbook.

Refund Appeals Process - Students may appeal a refund by submitting a written request outlining the basis of the appeal to the Business Office. Refund appeal requests will be decided by the Business Manager. The student will be notified in writing of the decision within 10 working days of receipt of the written appeal request. Students may appeal the decision of the Business Manager to the Vice President for Business Affairs by submitting a written request for a refund appeal review to the Vice President for Business Affairs. The student will be notified in writing of the Vice President’s decision within 10 working days of receipt of the request for refund appeal review.

Return of Title IV Funds – Refunds of fees for students who receive assistance from Title IV financial aid programs are returned to each grant and/or loan account in accordance with applicable federal regulations when students totally withdraw or stop attending all classes at Northeast State. Return of Title IV Funds policies that apply to students who receive assistance under Title IV financial aid programs can be obtained from the Office of Financial Aid.

Eligibility for Deferment of Payment of Tuition and Fees by certain eligible students – Certain eligible students receiving U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or other governmentally funded educational assistance benefits may be eligible for a deferment of payment of tuition and fees. Service members, veterans and dependents of veterans who are eligible beneficiaries of U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs education benefits or other governmentally funded educational assistance, subject to the conditions and guidelines set forth in Tennessee Code Annotated 49-7-104 as amended, may elect, upon formal application, to defer payment of required tuition and fees until the final day of the term for which the deferment has been requested. Application for the deferment must be made no later than 14 days after the beginning of the term, and the amount of the deferment shall not exceed the total monetary benefits to be received for the term. Students who have been granted deferments are expected to make timely payments on their outstanding tuition and fees balance once education benefits are being delivered, and eligibility for such deferment shall terminate if the student fails to abide by any applicable rule or regulation, or to act in good faith in making timely payments. This notice is published pursuant to Public Chapter 279, Acts of 2003, effective July 1, 2003.
