Students will receive full refunds of tuition and fees (excluding the mandatory application fee) if they formally withdraw from the college by the last day to withdraw from classes without academic or financial penalties as listed in the Academic Calendar. Reductions that result in a schedule of 15 or more credit hours are not eligible for a refund. The college will not issue refunds to students who withdraw from some or all classes after the last day to withdraw from classes without academic or financial penalties. Furthermore, the college will not issue refunds to students who stop attending classes and do not complete the formal withdrawal process (see Withdrawing from Classes).
If the director of registration and records administratively withdraws students because classes are canceled, because students fail prerequisite courses the previous semester, or because students are academically dismissed at the conclusion of the previous semester, the college will refund the original tuition if the reduction changes their enrollment from full-time (12 or more hours) to part-time status (less than 12 hours). If the administrative withdrawal results in students being withdrawn completely for the semester, the college will refund 100 percent of the tuition and fees (excluding the mandatory application fee). The college will refund 100 percent of the tuition and fees (excluding the mandatory application fee) paid by students who are reported as No Shows by their instructors (see No Show Policy).
Nelnet Payment Plan
Athens Technical College offers students a payment plan option through Nelnet Business Solutions. Students must pay an enrollment fee when signing up for payment plans. The fee is based on the number of monthly installments selected. Students must also make a down payment when signing up for payment plans. The amount of down payment, number of monthly payments, and the enrollment fee are determined by the date of enrollment in the plan.
Students apply for payment plans through BannerWeb. Once students log into the secure area, they need to click the Student Services and Financial Aid link to access the Nelnet payment plan application.
