rove City College Student Account Billing Information 2012-2013
STUDENT ACCOUNT: The student account reflects all tuition, room and board, course fees and other charges. Payments and financial aid (scholarships and loans) are recorded as credits that reduce the student account balance. The College considers the student financially responsible for their student account. Accordingly, all correspondence is addressed to the student and will be sent to the student’s GCC email address. If the student is receiving financial assistance from a parent or guardian, it is the student’s responsibility to forward all correspondence regarding the student account.
ONLINE STUDENT ACCOUNT ACCESS:
Log into your myGCC account at https://my.gcc.edu/ics
using your student ID number and password (issued in your acceptance letter). Once you are logged in, click on the Financial Info menu. Find the My Account Information portlet and click on the My Account Balance link. To view your student account statement, click on Course and Fee Statement, Generate my Course and Fee Statement, and then View my Course and Fee Statement.
PAYMENT DUE DATES: Payments for the Fall Semester are due by the first business day in August (August 1, 2012). Payments for the Spring Semester and January Intersession are due by the first business day in January (extended to January 4, 2013). Housing Deposits are due in early March (watch for announcement). May Intersession charges are due the Friday before Intersession begins (May 17, 2013). All other miscellaneous charges are due and payable within 10 days of assessment. All outstanding balances will be subject to a $35 late fee on the 1st business day of each month.
In order to be considered fully registered and enrolled your student account balance must be paid in full before the payment deadline. Unpaid balances result in a hold on your account and you will not receive grades or be permitted to register for future semesters until the balance is paid. Any changes to your schedule, housing status or financial aid will affect your outstanding balance. For the official payment policy, please refer to Payment Policy
. If you are unable to pay your account in full prior to the payment deadline, contact the Assistant Director of Financial Services at email@example.com
or 724-458-2214 before the payment deadline
ACCEPTED FORMS OF PAYMENT:
ELECTRONIC CHECK: Electronic check (e-check) payments may be made by using your bank’s nine digit routing number and checking account number. There is no charge to make an e-check payment; the payment is simply withdrawn from your checking account the following business day.
CREDIT CARDS: Credit card payments may also be made for a 2.75% convenience fee of each transaction (the fee goes directly to CASHNet, a third-party payment processing company, and does not benefit the College). MasterCard, Discover, and American Express are accepted; however, CASHNet cannot accept VISA due to restrictions imposed by VISA. Credit cards can only be accepted as outlined below and cannot be processed in the Student Accounts Office or over the phone.
To make either an e-check or credit card payment:
Log into https://my.gcc.edu/ics using your student ID number and password.
Click on the Financial Info Menu.
Under My Account Info select Go to CASHNet.
Follow the checkout process.
The payment will be processed by CASHNet and will be posted to your student account.

529 TUITION SAVINGS PLANS:
If you are expecting a disbursement from a 529 Tuition Savings Plan to pay for all or a portion of your charges, please notify the Student Accounts Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
before the semester payment deadlines with the following information: student’s name, ID number, name and state of the savings plan, amount to be disbursed and expected date of disbursement.
MONTHLY PAYMENT PLAN: Tuition Payment Plan participants will see their payments, which have been received, as a credit on their student account statements. The amount due will reflect the total of any outstanding payment plan payments plus any additional amount due. Traditional Payment Plan participants should mail the remaining payment plan payments as they become due, and remit any additional amount due so that it is received before the payment deadline. AutoPay Payment Plan participants can adjust their payment amount prior to the payment deadline to ensure their student account is paid in full by the payment deadline. Regardless of which plan is used, the student account must be paid in full before the payment deadline to avoid late payment fees.
CRIMSON CASH ACCOUNT:
The Crimson Cash Account is a declining balance account on the Grove City College Campus ID Card. The card may be used to pay for purchases at participating campus locations (bookstore, GeDunk, laundry) up to the amount of the prepaid card account balance. The Crimson Cash Account does not automatically interact with the Student Account. Funds are only transferred between the accounts upon request by email to email@example.com
or in person at the Student Accounts Office.
You can view your Crimson Cash balance and make deposits any time electronically via e-check or credit card through the myGCC portal under the Financial Info menu. Cash deposits can be made at the Automated Deposit Machines (ADM) located in the Student Union and the Library. Cash or check deposits are accepted during business hours at the Cashier's Window, 2nd Floor Crawford Hall.
Refunds of overpayments on your student account may be requested by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
. All estimated financial aid credits, such as state grants or GCC loans, must be received by the College before you will get a full refund of your account. If you have an estimated credit on your account and you need money to purchase books, you may request up to $500.00 until we receive all your estimated credits. Refunds will not be issued until after the first day of classes. Refunds can be issued via check, direct deposit (must be enrolled), or can be placed on your Crimson Cash Account.
BOOKSTORE: Purchases in the Grove City College Bookstore can be paid by cash, check, Crimson Cash or credit card (MasterCard, Visa, or Discover). Students using credit cards must have both the credit card and either a valid student I.D. or driver’s license with them at the time of purchase. Student account credit is not extended for any bookstore purchases.
It is important to note that all scholarships are divided between two semesters unless the Financial Aid Office has notification in writing from the donor that the scholarship is to be applied to a single semester only. The Financial Aid Office must receive written notification each year of all Outside Scholarships which you are expecting. For further information on Outside Scholarships, please click on this link: Outside Scholarship Policy
Please apply for loans in a timely manner to allow sufficient time for loan funds to be processed and received prior to the payment due date. The application process contains several steps. Please monitor your mail and email throughout the process for important notifications that require immediate action by borrower and co-signer. Failure to respond promptly could result in significant delays in completion of your loan. Missing or incomplete information will also cause delays in your loan application and disbursement. These delays could result in your student account being unpaid at the payment deadline for which you would be charged a $35.00 late payment fee. For further information on Loans, please use the following link: Loans
ENROLLMENT WITHDRAWAL: Students planning to withdraw or transfer from GCC must contact the Registrar's Office at 724-458-2175 to complete the exit interview process.
