Tuition and Fee Payment Related Dates

Fall and Spring

After aid is applied, students receive a tuition statement with their remaining balance. A $50 late fee is applied if Tuition and Fees are not paid in full as of the 25th day of the academic term. Students will receive another statement with a notice that a late fee has been applied.

Summer

After aid is applied, students receive a tuition statement with their remaining balance. A $50 late fee is applied if Tuition and Fees are not paid in full as of the last day of the summer academic term. Students will receive another statement with a notice that a late fee has been applied.

Collections

100 days after the Tuition and Fees due date, the College will send the student a collection notification letter along with their tuition statement. The collection notification letter will specify the timeframe for full payment to avoid having the debt sent to the Minnesota Department of Revenue.

Veterans Benefits

Consistent with Minnesota State Statute 197.775, students who are eligible and have applied for but not yet received veteran benefits are exempt from being charged a late fee. The law states that ATCC “may not assess late fees or other late charges for veterans who are eligible to receive federal or state educational assistance and who have applied for that assistance but not yet received it, nor may they prevent these students from registering for a subsequent term because of outstanding tuition charges that arise from delayed federal or state payments.” The law also states that ATCC “may request without delay the amount of tuition above expected federal and state educational assistance and may require payment of the full amount of tuition owed by the veteran within 30 days of receipt of the expected federal or state educational assistance.”
