All tuition and fees are due by August 17, 2012 unless other arrangements have been made in
writing and approved by the appropriate Simmons official. Examples of other arrangements are
Promissory Notes (see Payment Plan), and evidence of external funding such as PELL grants,
Vocational Rehabilitation allowances or Veterans benefits.
Payment Plan┼
For the student who is unable to pay the total cost of registration and tuition by the due
date, the following payment plan is available. A student may pay one-third of the total
fees by August 17, and divide the remaining charges in three equal payments with the
installments being due and payable on or before the fifth (5th) of each succeeding
month. All student accounts must be kept current and all accounts must be paid before
the students’ grades will be posted in a given semester. Any student who fails to remain
current on their account will not be allowed to register for classes for the following
semester.
Financial Penalties┼
Students whose accounts are not paid by the established semester deadlines may be subject to
financial penalties. Students with unpaid account balances will be placed on Financial Hold by
the Bursar's Office. Students placed on Financial Hold become ineligible for further registration
and transcripts will not be released until the student account is paid in full. A late payment fee of
$50.00 may be assessed when student accounts are not paid by the last day to drop/add for the
semester.
A return payment fee of $25.00 may be assessed when payment is not honored by the bank on
which it was drawn. If restitution is not made within 10 days of notification, the student may be
subject to financial penalties and/or legal action.
Debtors who do not make satisfactory payment arrangements on their past due accounts may
have their accounts placed with a billing service. If not paid through the billing service, the
unpaid account may be forwarded to a collection agency. It is the policy of the College that
unpaid accounts will be assessed the costs and expenses of collection, including attorney fees.
Refund Policy for Cancellations Prior to the First Day of Classes
Rejection: An applicant rejected by the college is entitled to a refund of all monies paid.
Cancellation: An applicant who provides written notice of cancellation prior to the first day of
classes is entitled to a refund of all monies paid, excluding non-refundable fees.
Tuition Reductions┼
When a student officially withdraws from the College or from any course, or courses, for which
hourly tuition rates apply, tuition charges will be adjusted according to the TUITION
REDUCTION SCHEDULE. The full amount of tuition charges for the semester will be due
3
unless the withdrawal occurs during the Tuition Reduction period. Course fees, special fees and
laboratory fees are reduced only with 100% tuition reduction.
TUITION REDUCTION SCHEDULE┼
August 17 is the last day to initially register for the term. After you register for a term,
you may drop/add through the withdrawal deadlines dates. The last day to add is also the
last day to delete a course from your record. After that date, a grade of "W" is assigned
for all withdrawals.

Withdrawal Procedure:
A. A student choosing to withdraw from the college after the commencement of classes is to
provide a written notice to the Registrar. The notice must include the expected last date of
attendance and be signed and dated by the student.
B. If special circumstances arise, a student may request, in writing, a leave of absence, which
should include the date the student anticipates the leave beginning and ending. The
maximum period of a leave of absence is 180 days. The withdrawal date will be the date the
student is scheduled to return to Simmons College of Kentucky from the leave of absence but
fails to do so.
C. A student may be determined to be withdrawn from the institution if the student misses six
consecutive instructional days or seven consecutive instructional hours and all of the
absences are unexcused.
D. All refund requests must be submitted within 45 days of the determination of the withdrawal
date.

Return of Title IV Policy
The Financial Aid Office is required by federal statute to recalculate federal financial aid
eligibility for students who withdraw, drop out, are dismissed, or take a leave of absence prior to
completing 60% of a payment period or term. The federal Title IV financial aid programs must
be recalculated in these situations. The calculation must be performed even if the student has
completed 60% of the payment period to show that the school determined that the student
withdrew.
If a student leaves the institution prior to completing 60% of a payment period or term, the
financial aid office recalculates eligibility for Title IV funds. Recalculation is based on the
percentage of earned aid using the following Federal Return of Title IV funds formula:
Percentage of payment period or term completed = the number of days completed up to the
withdrawal date divided by the total days in the payment period or term. (Any break of five days
or more is not counted as part of the days in the term.) This percentage is also the percentage of
earned aid. Clock hour institutions must use clock hours scheduled to be completed as of the
withdrawal date divided by the total hours in the payment period.
Funds are returned to the appropriate federal program based on the percentage of unearned aid
using the following formula:
Aid to be returned = (100% of the aid that could be disbursed minus the percentage of earned
aid) multiplied by the total amount of aid that could have been disbursed during the payment
period or term.
If a student earned less aid than was disbursed, the institution would be required to return a
portion of the funds and the student would be required to return a portion of the funds. Keep in
mind that when Title IV funds are returned, the student borrower may owe a debit balance to the
institution.
If a student earned more aid than was disbursed to him/her, the institution would owe the student
a post-withdrawal disbursement which must be paid within 120 days of the date the institution
determined that the student withdrew.
Refunds are allocated in the following order:
· Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan
· Subsidized Federal Stafford Loan
· Federal Perkins Loan
· Federal Parent (PLUS) Loan
· Federal Pell Grant
· Federal Supplemental Opportunity Grant
· other Title IV assistance
· other state
· private and institutional aid
· the student
Veterans Refund Policy
Any person receiving educational assistance from the Veterans Administration (VA)
shall be entitled to a pro-rated refund of any charges and/or fees. The refund shall equal
5
the pro-rated cost of the incomplete course. (Students receiving VA entitlements should
contact their VA representative for further financial assistance.)
