Expenses and Financial Aid




Payment of Tuition and Fees

Registration is not completed until payment of tuition, residence hall rent, board, and fees have cleared. A late payment charge of $50 will be assessed on the first day of the term; a $10 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 Enrollment Services shall declare the fees unpaid and registration canceled until the check has been redeemed and the additional charge paid. Student records will not be released by the Office of Enrollment Services for any student who has a delinquent financial obligation to the institution.

Students attending Fairmont State are offered an alternative to payment in full at the time of registration. This payment plan is known as the Financial Installment Plan Service, or FIPS. This allows students to pay their balance in four equal payments. If payment is not received before the due date each month, a $25 late fee will be added to the account. The registration process is not complete until all fees, and any penalties, have been paid in full. Fees can be paid with Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover Card. Students receiving financial aid must apply 100 percent of their aid prior to FIPS payments.

Payment in full is due prior to the first day of every term. 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: All tuition and fees are subject to change. Please see our homepage for the most current tuition and fee information. From the main home page, select Enrollment Center, next select Tuition and Costs to locate this information.

Please note that bills are not sent via mail. Billing information, reminders and important notices are sent to each student’s institutional e-mail address.
