Student Financial Agreement
Prior to registration, all students must agree to the Student Financial Agreement, which will be displayed in myGCC the first time students access a term. The Student Financial Agreement acknowledges that course registration creates a financial obligation to Genesee Community College. The agreement also clarifies Residency, withdrawal and non-payment conditions. Any questions regarding the Student Financial Agreement can be directed to the Business Office at (585) 345-6950.
I understand and agree that once I am registered for a course or courses at Genesee Community College (the “College”), I am solely responsible for the payment of the resulting tuition, fees, and any other charges that I have authorized to be posted my account. I fully understand, acknowledge and agree that regardless of any expected reliance by me on any third-party resource, including, without limitation, financial aid, employer reimbursements, scholarships, or any other external resource, I am and remain personally responsible for paying any and all balances due the College. This agreement constitutes a continuing agreement obligating me to pay all outstanding balances due the College.
To qualify for New York resident tuition, the student must submit to the Business Office a certificate of residence once per academic year. Ordinarily, a certificate of residence is submitted at the time of registration, but no earlier than 60 days before the beginning of a semester. Students who do not submit a certificate within 30 days after the start of the semester will be subjected to double tuition charges. For additional information see Residency Requirements.
Course registration creates a financial obligation to the College. The tuition refund policy is only effective upon receipt of an official withdrawal notice. Non-attendance is not withdrawal. For additional details see the Withdrawal Policy Page.
Failure to Pay & Collections for Nonpayment
I understand that if my account should lapse into delinquent status, I will receive no transcript, no grades, and will not be allowed to register until my bill is paid. Please note that it is the College’s practice to place delinquent accounts with an outside collection agency at the end of each term. I agree to reimburse the College the fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 33% of the debt, and all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, that the College incurs in such collection efforts.
I authorize the College and their respective agents and contractors to contact me regarding my student account at the current or any future number that I provide for my cellular phone or other wireless device using automated telephone dialing equipment or artificial or pre-recorded voice or text messages.
I hereby acknowledge that I have read this Agreement and fully understand it. By clicking on the I Accept button below, I am agreeing to be bound by all the terms of this Agreement, thereby obligating me to pay all outstanding balances that I may incur with Genesee Community College now and in the future.
