Students are expected to meet all financial obligations when due. The College will notify students by email of upcoming payment deadlines; therefore, students must update their personal information including mailing address, phone number, and especially the preferred email address in order to receive this communication. It is each student’s responsibility to be informed of all payment due dates, deadlines and other requirements by referring to official sources of college information such as the catalog, official schedule of classes, announcements on the college website or that are disseminated by other means from time to time.
Student Account Information
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) is printed in its entirety in the General Catalog. The intent of the Act is to define the types of information about students which may be released without their prior consent. Students may request that no information be released without their consent by signing a written statement in the Admissions Office.

Cash and check payments may be presented in person at the Decatur or Huntsville Campus during the Business Office hours of operation (see Office Hours and Phone Numbers page) or checks may be mailed but must be received by the payment deadline.

Calhoun offers an interest-free automatic payment plan through Nelnet Business Solutions. A nonrefundable enrollment fee depending on the number of payments applies. The payment methods available are automatic bank payment (ACH) or credit/debit card. All down payments and enrollment fees are processed immediately. Regularly scheduled payments will process on the 5th of the month. For more information about the payment plan, you may access the payment plan details at www.MyCollegePaymentPlan.com/calhoun.
After each applicable payment deadline, schedules can be deleted for nonpayment of tuition and fees. Students may not attend class if tuition or fees are unpaid. A financial hold will be placed on the student’s account when there is any past due financial obligation to the college. When there is a financial hold, the student will not be permitted to register for classes, receive transcripts, nor any other service from the college.
Students who intend to use financial aid to pay tuition and fees must complete all financial aid processes by the due date. Financial aid awards appear as authorized aid on your student account once you have completed all financial aid requirements and accepted your awards. You will also need to ensure that you will have enough financial aid to pay your balance. Any remaining balance that will not be covered by financial aid MUST be paid by the due date to avoid deletion of your schedule. If you have any questions about your financial aid, contact Student Financial Services.Close this window to go back to the schedule information
