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,, National Guard, and Go Army Ed. 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 $30. Signing up for automatic withdrawal is an additional process. 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 may have to 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:

  • Students are encouraged to enroll in direct deposit of student refunds by entering bank information into their MyCSC student dashboard before the refund posts to the student account.
  • On-campus students may pick up their refund check in the Business Office with their photo ID. Paper checks produced after the refund process will take approximately 5-7 days to arrive in the Business Office.

  • Students whose enrollment is entirely off-campus or online may receive their refund check in the mail.

Changes of Registration and Withdrawal Policy

Please refer to the Changes of Registration and Withdrawal Policy for further details.

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. Students are encouraged to receive 1098-T forms electronically. Click on the link below for instruction on how to grant consent to receive your 1098-T electronically.

Privacy on Student Account Information

Federal guidelines prohibits CSC from giving information about student accounts to parents or anyone else unless permission is granted. Any student wishing to sign a release allowing parents to access their account information can contact the Vice President for Enrollment Management, Marketing, and Student Services in Crites Hall, Room 336, or print and complete this form:

Book Advance

Students needing to purchase books with financial aid can do so prior to receiving a financial aid refund. However, students must have all financial aid awarded and have completed all necessary documents to be eligible for a book advance. The book advance will be taken out of the student’s financial aid prior to being refunded so please plan accordingly.

The book advance is for Chadron State College MBS Direct only. Books purchased elsewhere are not eligible for book vouchers. 

The deadline for book advances to be awarded is three to five weeks prior to the semester start date. If a student has not been awarded a book advance the student may contact the Business Office to determine eligibility.
