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.

Students who fail to meet their financial obligations cannot register until all financial obligations have been met. A student may be administratively withdrawn for failure to make payment in a timely manner. In addition, students are required to meet all financial obligations before grades, transcripts and credentials will be issued.

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.

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. Participation in the GSC Semester Tuition Payment Plan offered by the College. This plan provides students an option to defer payment of tuition and fees over an entire semester through the use of a monthly payment schedule. Students using the Tuition Payment Plan are required to keep payments current. Delinquency will result in students not being allowed to register for classes in future semesters. Payments may be deferred only to the end of a semester. The Tuition Payment Plan divides tuition and fees for the semester into 4 equal installment payments. 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.
