*Tuition and fees are subject to change.
All tuition and fees must be paid in full or students must be signed up and current on a payment plan before any future enrollments can be processed. 1 week before classes begin the student can view their student account on line by logging into their Buster Web, under "Review Student Account/Make Payment/ Set up Payment Plan. From there a student can make a payment, set up a payment plan or authorize others to view their student account, make payments or sign up on a payment plan on the student's behalf. Students whose financial aid applications are complete and accurate in the Financial Aid Office by July 1 or December 1 will have their aid eligibility determined by August 1 or January 1.
In addition to GCCC's refund policy, all students receiving Federal (Title IV) Financial Aid are subject to a "Return of Title IV Funds" calculation. This calculation is required for students who completely withdraw on or before the 60% point of the semester. The "Return of Title IV Funds" calculation involves only the Federal Financial Aid portion of funds received by the student. It determines the amount of federal funds the student and GCCC are entitled to keep, based on how long the student was enrolled during the semester. It is possible that GCCC and/or the student will owe federal funds back to the Department of Education regardless of the outcome of the GCCC institutional refund policy.
Students are expected to make prompt payment of all college financial obligations such as tuition and fees, housing, food, special fees, library fines and loans. MasterCard and VISA cards are accepted for payments.
• All existing financial obligations must be paid before enrollment will be allowed for the subsequent semester or summer session.
• If a student leaves the college with unpaid accounts, his/her academic records will be placed on hold and no academic transcripts will be issued until the account is cleared.
• Graduating students must clear all outstanding accounts before their diplomas will be issued.
• Holds will be placed on records of students who have defaulted on Federal Student Loans received while attending GCCC. No academic transcripts will be issued until the default status is resolved.
• To avoid registration delays a student, relying on financial aid to pay college costs, is responsible for contacting the Financial Aid Office and having all necessary forms and documentation completed before registration.

Students with financial aid in place at the beginning of each semester may purchase books with a book voucher issued by the Business Office.
