The student is responsible for these fees, which may vary from site to site. The Distance Learning Department will work with the student to secure an assessment site and provide information regarding the associated fees for that site.

Refund Information

Financial Responsibility and Past-Due Indebtedness

Students are expected to keep their accounts current with the College. By applying to the College, students have accepted financial responsibility for all costs associated with their education. The Financial Responsibility Acknowledgement covers the rights of the College to assign delinquent accounts to an external collection agency, report past-due debt to credit bureaus, and seize S.C. State tax refunds.

Chester Center
Students with past-due indebtedness will not be allowed to obtain grades, transcripts, diplomas, degrees, or certificates or to enroll in subsequent terms. The College reserves the right to cancel the enrollment of a student with past-due indebtedness; however, the cancellation of enrollment does not relieve the student of the incurred debt.

Cost of Attendance

“Cost of Attendance” is an estimated calculation of the total cost to go to school, giving an allowance ceiling for grants, scholarships, and loans should you need to have every expense covered in order to attend. Cost of Attendance does not represent the actual charges that you will be responsible to the college for.
