College offers to defer tuition costs

March 15th, 2013 in News

Columbia College is deferring tuition costs for military service members affected by the federal sequester.

The college will defer charges for the term beginning March 25, while military students seek other funding. For those unable to secure other financial assistance, the college will offer a no-liability withdrawal policy or and extended six-month payment plan for those affected.

To participate in the plan, students must be eligible for military tuition assistance; have a current Free Application for Federal Student Aid form on file at the college and defer tuition until April 26. Students who meet the above criteria will have the opportunity to withdraw from class through April 26 without financial or academic liability and will be offered a six-month payment plan with the first payment due April 26.
