Cost & Refund Policies

Student Account Responsibility

Payment of tuition, fees, and other semester charges including assessed late fees, are the sole responsibility of the student. All payments are due on the 15th of the month prior to the start of the semester. Approved payment includes proof of a payment plan through an authorized Simpson University vendor including Tuition Management Systems (TMS). Students with a past due balance are subject to the loss of service including but not limited to meal plan, housing, and class attendance. Students with an unpaid balance will be subject to late fees and ultimately sent to a 3rd party for collections in which delinquent payments could adversely affect credit. Late fees include, but are not limited to, a $150/monthly institutional charge.

Students will be unable to register for future courses including the succeeding semester, or receive official transcripts/ diploma when there is an unpaid student account balance. Students with an owing balance will be dropped from classes on the tenth day of the semester at 3:00pm and will need to pay balance in full before being considered for reinstatement. Any exceptions concerning registration eligibility, fees and service interruptions are at the sole discretion of the Student Financial Services (SFS) office and will involve signed agreements.

Refund Disbursal Options

As part of the registration process you will be asked to select a refund disbursal option via the Student Account Center. At that time, you will be asked to indicate the refund disbursal method you prefer when your account has an actual credit balance. Your two choices are:

  1. Reloadable Simpson University Discover Prepaid Card
    • Offers free reloading, bill pay, rewards points, and more
    • Funds typically available immediately upon release
  2. Direct Deposit
    • Deposits to a current checking or savings account
    • Funds available in 2-3 days of release

If you would like to receive a refund disbursal via check, please contact Student Accounts (530-226-2777) for further information. Be aware that this method of refund disbursement may take up to 10 days to process once funds are released.
