The Compass Student Services team is here to assist students with admissions, financial aid, enrollment, and billing inquiries.
2018 Spring Semester: Payments are due December 1, 2017.
All balances not resolved by December 1, 2017, will be assessed a late payment fee of $250 for balances above $1000, and $100 for balances of $1000 or less. Students who fail to pay their bill in full by the due date risk:
Fall statements are posted to student accounts on November 3, 2017, and all payments are made online through TouchNet. A posted statement may actually reflect a credit balance if there is estimated financial aid that will overpay the 2018 Spring semester tuition and fees (see 'Credit Refunds & Balances' below).
View and make payments on your account by accessing TouchNet through WebAdvisor by clicking here.
All full-time undergraduate traditional students* (registered for 12 credits or more, with no more than 50% online courses) are billed for Student Health Insurance. This plan is mandatory for students who are not covered by another policy and have not completed the online waiver form. A charge of $909 per semester is billed to the student account unless a waiver is completed by the deadline. Review the 17-18 Summary of Benefits to determine your health insurance coverage needs. Health Insurance cards confirming coverage are mailed to students' local address by mid-September.
Health Insurance Waivers must be completed by the Fall semester billing due date of July 27, 2017.
To complete a Health Insurance Waiver:
If you have any problems with the online waiver form, please contact Compass Student Services at 1-802-860-2777.
If a waiver is not received by July 27, 2017, the insurance plan and associated cost of $909 per semester will remain in effect for the full academic year, unless the student withdraws from the College.
*All Radiography majors, whether part-time or full-time, are billed for health insurance.
The College offers a ten-month payment plan through Tuition Management Systems (TMS) from May 15, 2017, to Feb 15, 2018. Although the May 15th enrollment date has passed, TMS will continue to accept applications through July 15, 2017.
The application must be accompanied by the $65.00 non-refundable application fee and the three monthly installment payments for May, June, and July. These payments should be sent directly to TMS and must be received by July 15, 2017.
For further information, please contact Tuition Management Systems directly at www.afford.com/champlain or 1-888-572-8985. To avoid the late payment fee referenced earlier, all payments due to TMS must be current as of July 27, 2017.
If you are enrolled in the TMS payment plan and there is still a balance remaining due to Champlain College on your fall statement due on July 27, 2017, please review your TMS budget. You may require a budget increase to cover additional expenses on the statement, please contact our staff at 802.860.2777 for assistance with budget recalculations or you may pay the remaining fall balance online on TouchNet.
Financial aid awards are listed as pending credits on the online billing statement.
Federal Direct Loans: The pending credit listed for Federal Direct Loans is the net disbursement amount after loan processing fees.
Direct PLUS Loans: If a parent has been approved for a Direct PLUS loan by the billing date, the loan will appear on the bill as a pending credit. Parents applying for the Direct PLUS loan must go to www.studentloans.gov and complete two steps: "Apply for a PLUS Loan" and "Complete Loan Agreement (MPN Master Promissory Note)."
Private Education Loans: Students who will be borrowing a Private Education Loan must be approved by the lender in order for the loan to be deducted from the bill.
Direct PLUS and Private Loans not fully approved by December 1, 2017, are not deducted when determining the late payment fee so we strongly encourage you to act promptly.
You may deduct from your payment due any private scholarships that will be disbursed to the College before December 1, 2017. Please send a copy of the scholarship letter or check to Compass Student Services and pay your remaining balance online.
If you have already received a financial aid award letter, these additional scholarship funds may impact certain aid eligibility, and the Office of Financial Aid may revise your award accordingly.
A posted statement may actually reflect a credit balance if there is estimated financial aid that will overpay the 2018 Spring semester tuition and fees.
Students who receive financial aid in excess of their billed charges will be issued a refund in February. We recommend that you enroll in Electronic Funds Transfer (eChecks), through WebAdvisor to have these funds sent directly to your bank account. Enrolling in eCheck refunds ensures the fastest access to your refund. In WebAdvisor, see "eChecks" on the student menu.
A refund will only be issued after the funds have been received by the College and the student's enrollment has been confirmed, usually the third Friday of the semester. An email is sent once the funds have been released so you will know when your refund has been processed.
Proceeds from Parent PLUS Loans that exceed the cost of tuition, residence hall, meals, and other fees, will be refunded to the parent borrower. All other proceeds will be issued to the student.
A refund will not be issued for accounts with payment plans for Tuition Management Systems since the account is not actually paid in full until all payments are completed.
The Software Technology Fee of $100 is a one-time assessment to all newly enrolled undergraduate students.
Your ID card serves as your Champlain College Student ID, your meal plan card, and residence hall key. You may also use the card to ride for free on any Chittenden County Transportation Authority (CCTA) bus in Chittenden County.
You have the option of using the card as a debit card at certain campus sites, including the bookstore, campus laundry facilities and at EATS, our on-campus food court.
Additionally, the card may be used with multiple vendors in the greater Burlington area, wherever merchants display our CC Cash Card logo. Tuition payments are not permissible via the CC Cash Card.
You may deposit funds to your Cash Card account 24 hours a day through our secure online portal.
Two meal plan options for commuter students may be purchased after July 10th.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that affords parents or guardians the right to have access to their student's education records. The student must sign a FERPA consent form authorizing the College to speak with others about their account.
Once a student begins classes, the FERPA consent form is required to allow our staff to speak with you about your student's account. Download the FERPA Consent form.
