A student must pay all tuition and fees in full before the beginning of each semester, prior to the first day of classes. Students who fail to take care of any balance prior to the tuition and fee deadline will be dropped for non-payment and will have to re-register for classes.

Deferred tuition payment plans are available. A copy of the terms and conditions may be obtained at the Cashier Office.

Residents of Richmond, GA and Columbia, GA counties pay Aiken County tuition plus a $15 reciprocity fee. Tuition and fees for auditing a class are the same as for credit classes.

A full-time student is enrolled in 12 or more credit hours per semester.

Exemption Exam $30.00 (per exam)
Reprocessing Fee $30.00 (reinstated in class(es) after being dropped for non-payment)

In order to be re-registered for the term, students who register for classes and are dropped from their classes due to nonpayment of fees will be a charged a “re-processing fee” of $30. The enrollment and re-processing fees are non-refundable. They are payable each semester (or when the student is reinstated for the semester).

Any student presenting a check to ATC that is returned by the bank will be charged a $30 processing fee. The student must then pay all fees and collection charges to the 2nd Circuit Solicitor’s Worthless Check Unit, located at 1689 Richland Ave. W, Aiken, S.C.

Student Refund Policy

Only students who submit a completed Add/Drop/Withdrawal Form within the specified deadline for the academic term for which the refund is requested may receive a refund. Non-refundable fees are not eligible for refunds.

  1. Should the college cancel a class, the college refunds the full tuition with no action required by the student.
  2. A student who elects to request an exemption exam for course(s) after the add/drop date is not eligible for a refund since a grade will be issued.
  3. When a drop results in the student taking fewer than 12 credit hours, the college recalculates tuition based upon the remaining credit hours. The difference between the tuition after drop and the original charge is the basis for calculating any refund.
  4. The college refunds full tuition and fees for the current term to the beneficiary of any student who dies while enrolled as a credit student, or if they receive military orders to deploy.
  5. The college will provide a 100% tuition refund for any student who drops from classes during the Add/Drop/Late Registration period (for each term/semester). There is no refund for students withdrawing classes after this period has passed.
Title IV Student Aid (Federal and Pell)
  1. Title IV-sponsored student “earns” his/her aid by successfully attending class. The aid is not fully earned until the 9th week of class. Because a refund will only be processed for students dropping during the Add/Drop/Late Registration period, students who withdraw after this period will owe the college or the federal government if he or she withdraws prior to the 9th week of classes.
  2. A student who never attends a class in any/all courses is considered to have dropped before the start of the term. However, it is the student’s responsibility to drop any class he or she does not plan to attend.
  3. A student withdrawing after the Add/Drop/Late Registration period receives no refund unless the Director of Enrollment Services determines extenuating circumstances were present over which the student had no control and which the student could not reasonably foresee at the time of registration. The student will still be responsible for all non-refundable fees and any bookstore charges purchased with financial aid.

Continuing Education Fees  
See Training and Business Development

Veterans Administration Benefits
A student receiving Veterans Administration benefits while enrolled in a non-degree program receives a prorata refund of tuition and refundable fees calculated on the number of class days attended.

Refunds Due To Academic Suspension
A student who has paid tuition and non-refundable fees for an upcoming term and is subsequently placed on academic suspension for that term receives 100 percent refund of tuition and fees paid.

Student Refund Policy for Military Activation

The following became law June 24, 2002:

  1. When any person is activated for full-time military service during a time of national crisis and, therefore, is required to cease attending a public institution of higher learning without completing and receiving a grade in one or more courses, the assistance provided in this section is required with regard to courses not completed. A complete refund of tuition and academic fees as are assessed against all students at the institution shall be granted to the student. The refund shall be distributed proportionately to the student after considering other resources received by the student for paying applicable tuition and fee charges. The proportionate distribution shall take into account appropriate federal and state regulations governing resources received by the student. Students must be offered the maximum price, based on condition, for the textbooks associated with the courses.
  2. When a student is required to cease attendance because of such military activation without completing and receiving a grade in one or more courses, the institution shall provide a reasonable opportunity for completion of the courses after deactivation.
