PAYMENT POLICIES

Payment Methods
CIIS accepts payments by cash, check, money order (made out to “CIIS”), or credit card (VISA and MasterCard). To make a payment online, log on to MyCIISat and click the “eBiz” tab.

Payment Deadlines
Tuition and fees are charged upon registration and are due at that time. Financial aid recipients whose aid covers only a portion of the total charges must pay the balance at the time of registration. Any balance that will be covered by aid should not be paid in advance. Students seeking exceptions to this deadline should contact the Financial Aid Office at least one week prior to registration.

Deferred Payment Plan
The Deferred Payment Plan allows students to pay their total semester charges in equal installments. A $50 fee is charged for this service. The installment payment due dates are as follows:

A $25 fee is added to the student’s account each time an installment is not paid by its due date. The Deferred Payment Plan is not available to registrants who are not admitted to a CIIS academic program (i.e., Special Students).

Students receiving financial aid or who have signed up for the Deferred Payment Plan are exempt from late payment fees.

Refund Deadlines
One hundred percent of a course’s tuition charge is reversed if it is withdrawn from on or before the Add/Drop Deadline. Seventy-five percent is reversed if it is withdrawn from through the third week of the semester. Fifty percent is reversed if it is withdrawn from through the seventh week (the fifth week for summer). No percentage is reversed for courses withdrawn from after the seventh week (the fifth week for summer). Refer to the “Academic Calendar” for the specific deadlines. These deadlines apply regardless of the actual start and end dates of the course.

For students who received any form of federal financial aid, the amount that will be returned to the financial aid programs is determined by federal guidelines and may be different than the amount calculated by CIIS’s refund policy. Contact the Financial Aid Office for more information about this calculation.

All fees are nonrefundable. This includes the registration fee, which is not be refunded even if all courses are dropped or withdrawn from.

Refunds Granted after Refund Deadlines—Financial Petition Process
Students who believe they have extenuating circumstances warranting a credit, refund, or adjustment of tuition and/or fees may present a petition to the Financial Petition Committee (FPC). The Financial Petition form is available from the Registrar’s Office and on MyCIIS.

The FPC considers a request only if all of the following are in place: 1) The student experienced a serious extenuating circumstance beyond his or her control; and 2) the student includes an explanation of this circumstance along with supporting documentation; this documentation becomes the property of CIIS and will not be returned; and 3) if petitioning to receive a reversal of a tuition charge, the associated course has been dropped or withdrawal from; and 4) the petition is submitted within 90 calendar days of the last day of the semester in which the charge was incurred.

The petition and its its attachments will remain confidential and be seen only by members of FPC, which is composed of representatives from the following offices: Academic Affairs, Dean of Student , Registrar, Business and Financial Aid. The FPC may, with the petitioner's permission, consult with any faculty, staff, students, or other parties, who may have relevant information. The FPC may request additional supporting materials from the student, or , if the student consents, from  other parties. The student is not present when FPC meets. The FPC issues its decision within 30 calendar days of receiving all documentation, informs the student and any Institute personnel who need to take action to implement the decision, and places documentation of the petition and the decision in the student's file maintained in the Registrar's Office.

The decision of the FPC is final. Reconsideration is granted only if significant information not contain in the original petition becomes available. Students do, however, have the option of seeking further consideration of a petition through the CIIS General Student Complaint Procedure.
