Deferred Payment options (Agency or Employer Funded)

Students must present written documentation from their sponsoring agency or employer to receive a deferment.

Deferment of tuition and fees is optional for students who are eligible for financial aid (grants or loans). They must complete all financial aid procedures, including submission of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), before they can obtain a book voucher from the Payments/Billing Office.

Grade reports and/or transcripts of any student who has an outstanding financial obligation to the College are placed on hold until all debts are paid in full.

Officially withdrawing from class(es) does not eliminate a student's responsibility for any outstanding financial obligation to the College. The state refund policy applies to class changes made during the term, and any refund that a student might receive will first be applied to any outstanding debt.

Other payment options

Returned Check Charge. A minimum service charge of $35 will be assessed on each check returned by a bank. A returned check may result in cancellation of a student's registration.

Bankruptcy Limitations. Southwest Wisconsin Technical College is a non-profit institution of higher learning. As such, student receivable accounts are considered to be educational loans offered for the sole purpose of financing an education and are not dischargeable in bankruptcy proceedings.
