Financial Aid

All financial aid requirements MUST be completed and disbursed to student account to use as a payment option. Financial aid must be showing on the student’s account by the payment deadline. If financial aid is not disbursed to the account by the payment deadline, students may be responsible for a 2% late fee. If financial aid is not enough to cover the student account, student must pay or make payment arrangements with the Business Office staff for the remaining balance by the payment due date(s).

Please note that if a student drops below full-time status (12 credit hours) or does not meet satisfactory academic guidelines for the semester, their financial aid may be affected and the student may be required to repay a portion of the financial aid he/she has received.

Third-Party Billing

Chadron State College accepts payments from outside sources that have formally agreed to pay tuition and fees for an eligible student. These organizations include but are not limited to the Veteran’s Administration, Vocational Rehabilitation and National Guard. Each student remains responsible for any remaining balance to be left on their account after the third-party payments by the payment due dates. The student is responsible to ensure that all documentation, requirements and deadlines are met.

Payment Plans

CSC offers a payment plan designed to assist students and their families who may be unable to pay the full amount of the bill by the due date. The plan is interest free and includes an enrollment fee of $10-$35. For more information go to:

Delinquent Accounts/Consequences for Missing Payment Due Date - effective Spring 2016

If a student has not paid in full by the due date, signed up for a payment plan, or reported proof of other external resources or financial aid, a 2% late payment fee, which will not exceed $100 per semester, may be assessed on the account balance.

An enrollment cancellation notice may be sent, which may include disabling online course access, cancelling current and future registration and removing the student from on-campus housing and/or meal plans. A hold will be placed on the past due student account blocking registration for current and/or future classes and processing transcript requests until the account balance due is paid in full plus a $100 reinstatement fee. Students must also receive permission from all professors to be re-enrolled in current classes. Students may not be allowed to make up missed work due to disabled access or administrative withdrawal as a consequence for non-payment. If the student is not granted permission for re-enrollment the student will receive a “W” for the class.

Delinquent student accounts may be assigned to a collection agency and receive possible legal action. The collection agency may report the account to one or more of the national credit bureaus.

Financial Aid Refunds

Financial aid will be disbursed after the add/drop period deadline. If a student has a credit balance after all financial aid has been disbursed the account, they may be eligible for a financial aid refund. Students may receive their refund in the following ways:

  • On-campus students may pick up their refund check in the Business Office with their photo ID. Checks produced after the refund process will take approximately 5-7 days to arrive.
  • Students whose enrollment is entirely off-campus or online may receive their refund check in the mail.
  • Students may participate in direct deposit of student refunds by entering bank information into their MyCSC student dashboard.

Withdraw/Drop Policy

New withdrawal policy beginning Fall 2015:
Students will be allowed to drop classes without financial or academic penalty at 100% tuition and fee refund based on the following schedule:

  • Regular session courses - through the Sunday of the first week of classes for the term
  • Eight week session courses - through the Wednesday of the first week of classes for the term

If you do not plan to take courses, it is your responsibility to drop the courses you are enrolled in by the drop deadline. You can do this by:

  • Logging in to your MyCSC account and dropping through self-service OR
  • Sending an email request for the courses to be dropped to the START Office at

Student requesting or attempting to drop courses after the 100% drop period will be required to pay a $75 Late Drop Fee prior to being dropped. Written requests to be dropped for a 100% refund need to be submitted to and will be reviewed on a case by case basis at which time class attendance/participation will be verified.

For more information, visit the START website.

Direct Deposit

Direct deposit will expedite the receipt of refunds which will be deposited into bank accounts within three days after the refund process and eliminates the possibility of lost checks through mailing or waiting in line at the Business Office.

To participate in direct deposit, log into MyCSC, navigate to the Accounts tab and click the “Direct Deposit (Refunds)” link. Students will receive email notification as soon as the banking information has been entered, edited, or deleted.

1098-T Electronic Consent

Students may receive their 1098-T Tuition Tax Statement beginning in January of each calendar year. Each 1098-T will be mailed to the student’s permanent address on file unless the student grants electronic consent to receive it through their MyCSC Dashboard.
