**Some health care facilities are requiring background checks on students who do their clinical practicum at their site. These costs will be incurred by the student.

St. Luke's College Reserves the Right to Revise Charges as Necessary and Without Notice.

Indirect costs should be considered as additional educational expenses. Such costs include transportation, housing, meals, supplies, child care if appropriate, and other miscellaneous expenses as needed. The College uses allowances based on average costs.

Payment Instructions & Due Dates

Payments may be made at or mailed to St. Luke's Fiscal Services Department, 2720 Stone Park Blvd, Sioux City, Iowa, 51104. Visa, Master Card and Discover credit cards are accepted for payment by stopping in or calling the Fiscal Services at 712-279-3149. Payments must be in US currency.

Payment is due in full by the first business day of the month following the month in which classes start unless a deferred payment plan has been approved by Fiscal Services. If a deferred payment plan has been approved, the minimum balance stated on the deferred payment agreement is due by the specified deadline. Contact Fiscal Services at (712) 279-3149 prior to the due date to arrange for a deferred payment plan.

If the total balance or minimum balance due is not paid by the first business day of the month following the month in which classes start, the bill is considered delinquent. A late fee of $20 per month will be assessed to all delinquent bills not paid by the first business day of the month and will be assessed monthly thereafter until the bill is paid in full. Students with delinquent bills will not be allowed to register for subsequent semesters nor will they receive grades, certificates, diplomas, official transcripts or other student services.

A $25 fee will be assessed per occurrence for any returned checks due to non sufficient funds.

Deferred Payment Plan

St. Luke's College offers a deferred payment plan for tuition, fees, and other authorized charges less financial aid and scholarships credited to an account. The deferred payment plan allows a student to make payments in three equal monthly installments. The student must obtain deferred payment approval from the St. Luke's Fiscal Services Department prior to the first business day of the month following the start of classes. There is a non-refundable deferred payment fee for processing the deferred payment plan of $15 per semester. Failure to make timely payments will result in revocation of the privilege to pay in installments, and the outstanding balance becomes due immediately and will be subject to a $20 late fee.

Refund Schedule

Withdrawal Information and Return of Funds
A student must first give written notice to the Registrar’s Office of his/her withdrawal. The Registrar will notify the
Administrative Office and Financial Aid Office of the withdrawal date. The Financial Aid Office will calculate any
adjustments to financial aid according to the institutional and federal refund calculation. Financial Aid adjustments for partial withdrawal will follow the refund schedule below. All institutional charges (tuition and fees) will be refunded according to the following schedule. A week is defined as 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Students will be granted a refund only after refunds required by federal and state regulations have been made and if there is a credit balance remaining.

Withdrawal during the following time period: Percent of charges refunded:
 On or before the 1st day of class  100%
 Week 1  75%
 Week 2  50%
 Week 3  25%
 Week 4  25%
 Week 5 +  0%
It is considered a withdrawal when the student stops attending classes and is no longer receiving credit for the original

enrolled hours.

An official withdrawal is when the student has completed the Request to Withdraw from a Course form or the Request
to Withdraw from the College form and submit it to Student Services with the appropriate signatures.

An unofficial withdrawal is when the student has stopped attending class for a two-week period without verbally or in
writing contacting the College of the withdrawal. The date used will be the last date the student attended class or made
contact with the College. If no date can be established, the mid-point (50%) of the semester will be used. If the student
was not able to notify the College due to circumstances beyond their control, the date related to the circumstance may
be used once the College has been notified.

If a student does not return after an approved leave of absence, the withdrawal date will be the date the leave of absence began and will be considered an unofficial withdrawal.

Based on the withdrawal, the student’s financial aid may be subject to adjustment. The date and type of withdrawal will
be the source for determining the amount of financial aid adjusted. Federal, state, and institutional monies will be
affected equally, and all will follow this Return of Funds Policy.

If the withdrawing student received more funds than the amount earned, the College, and/or student must return the
unearned funds, as required in the following order: Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, Subsidized Stafford Loan, Plus Loan, Pell
Grant, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, St. Luke’s funds, and Iowa Tuition Grant.

Students will receive no refund of financial aid or tuition and fees if they withdraw on or after the 60% point in the

Students who officially withdraw prior to the 60% point will have their financial aid adjusted by the appropriate percentage. The portion of unearned financial aid must be repaid to the appropriate loan and/or grant program. If the student is required to return federal grant funds, they will have 45 days from the date of notification to pay the amount in full or to make satisfactory arrangements for repayment with the College or the Department of Education. Failure to repay or make arrangements within this time frame will result in the loss of eligibility for all federal aid for
attendance at any college until the amount is paid in full.

Note: Because the institutional refund policy follows a different formula for reducing tuition, and refunding private and
institutional aid, students may still owe money to the College after all calculations are complete.

Please contact the Financial Aid Office, (712) 279-3377 if you have any questions regarding the return of funds.
