Financial Obligations

Students are responsible for payment of all costs associated with attending The Good Samaritan College of Nursing and Health Sciences. Application for financial aid does not negate this responsibility. The financial obligation for each student must be paid in full or up to date in order to register for a subsequent semester. No balance will be carried over into a subsequent semester. Unusual circumstances or a financial crisis should be reported to the Bursar’s Office immediately, so the College can assist the student in planning or determining possible alternatives.

Payment of Tuition and Fees and Late Fees

It is the responsibility of each student to frequently access his or her account in SONIS and be aware of amounts due and published payment due dates. All student accounts are to be paid in full one week before classes begin each semester. If a student has not met their financial obligations for current semester charges by the due date, their registration will be cancelled. All financial obligations by way of payment plan and other arrangements for the current semester must be met prior to registration for the next semester. If a student has not met financial obligations for the current semester at the time of registration for the next semester, the student's registration for the next semester will not be processed and any priority in registration is forfeited. When outstanding monies are paid, the student's registration will then be processed.

There are four ways to pay tuition and fees:

  1. Payment in full by cash, check, money order, VISA, MasterCard, or Discover.
  2. Financial Aid Deferment. This can only be accepted if the student has submitted all the required forms/documentation needed by the Financial Aid Office. Any estimated difference between the cost of tuition and fees and the award requires that payment options be finalized one week before classes begin each semester.
  3. The GSC Semester Tuition Payment Plan is available to students to assist in meeting financial obligations. The GSC Semester Tuition Payment Plan divides tuition and fees for the semester into 4 equal installment payments. Students using the Tuition Payment Plan are required to keep payments current. Students who are delinquent will not be permitted to register for classes in the next semester or may result in dismissal from the College. Payments may be deferred only to the end of semester.
    When utilizing the GSC Semester Tuition Payment Plan, a Payment Plan Promissory and Disclosure Statement must be completed. A $25.00 processing fee is due at the time the student fills out the Promissory Note and Disclosure Statement. A payment schedule is determined to assure full payment by the end of each semester. The student using the payment plan must have a zero (0) balance at the end of each semester in order to maintain registration for the next semester. Further information may be obtained by contacting the Bursar’s Office at (513) 862-2744.
  4. Participation in the Employer Reimbursement Plan offered by the Good Samaritan College of Nursing and Health Sciences. Further information may be obtained by contacting the Bursar’s Office at (513) 862-2744.

Students enrolled in the Tuition Payment Plan and the Employer Reimbursement Plan must adhere to the policies agreed to at the time of enrollment in the plan.
