By matriculating at Cumberland University, a student accepts all the University policies as well as any federal and state regulations regarding payment and refunds. Charges are recorded by the semester and students should come to registration prepared to pay all tuition and fees due the University. Registration will not be completed and students cannot attend classes until all fees are paid or appropriate arrangements for payment have been made in the Business Office. Therefore, financial planning for the entire school year is highly recommended. A student who registers at Cumberland University assumes a financial obligation. The University expects that the student will comply in the timely payment of all charges. Personnel are available in the Office of Student Financial Services to assist with financial planning.
Third party students (those students whose tuition is paid by employers) must present, on company letterhead, a statement of his/her company's policy for payment of tuition and fees each semester in order to register for the semester. Third party students must have no more than the prior semester's balance outstanding in order to register for the current semester. Third party students must also sign a promissory note stating he/she is responsible for payment in the event the employer does not pay for any reason. It is the responsibility of the student to comply with all employer requirements for the payment of tuition.
