Student Financial Responsibilities

You are expected to attend all classes in which you are enrolled. If you do not attend or stop attending classes and fail to personally drop by the drop deadline you will be responsible for all tuition and fees. You are responsible to pay all charges on your account by the payment due date, even if you do not receive a bill, or your account is being paid by another party. Unless you pay immediately at the time of registration, you are entering into a student loan agreement with the college, which is non-dischargeable under USC § 523 (a) of the U.S. Bankruptcy code. You are responsible for keeping
BHCC informed of any address or telephone changes. You are liable for any charges incurred. If your account is referred for collection you agree to pay all collection and attorney fees, including those incurred at trial and on appeal. If you are unable to attend, remember to drop your classes (including wait listed classes). Tuition charges will be removed only if your drop is received by the published drop deadline. Lack of attendance does not constitute withdrawal.
