Financial Aid

The information provided below is for students enrolled in the College of Professional Studies.

Payment options

Payment options for CPS students are as follows:

Prepay

Students using this payment method may register for a full semester of courses; however, courses not paid at the time of registration will be coded "pre-registered." The student is responsible for ensuring that payment is received by the Business Office by the registration deadline. Payments may be made by check, money order, cashier’s check, or credit card. See below to make a payment by credit card via our online payment processor.

Financial Aid

Students using financial aid to pay for their tuition are responsible for ensuring that all proper paperwork is completed in a timely manner. A FAFSA must be on file with our financial aid office before registration. Students whose aid does not cover the entire tuition charges must make sufficient arrangements with the business office. Students who do not qualify for aid or their aid is canceled for any reason will be required to pay their account in full and provide a new payment option form for future courses.

Direct Billing

Some employers may wish to have their employees’ tuition billed directly. Students should contact their admissions representative or the business office for more information.

Voucher/Authorization Process

Students whose employer uses a voucher system will choose this option. Vouchers are an approval for each course obtained by the student from the employer. The voucher or authorization form is due to the business office by the registration deadline of each session.

Students are responsible for obtaining the voucher from their employer, submitting the voucher to Indiana Tech and once the course has been completed and a grade issued Indiana Tech will bill your employer for the course. If your voucher is submitted via email you will receive a confirmation email stating your voucher has been received.

Deferment for Employer Assistance

Students who receive tuition assistance from their employer must complete the deferment section of the payment option form. These students qualify to defer the tuition for 45 days after the end of the session. There is a $25 fee for this service. There is a late fee of $50 if payment is not made by the scheduled due date.

Military Benefits

Please contact Ben Parker in the registrar’s office at 800.288.1766, ext. 2341. for more information.

Withdrawals

Withdrawals information for CPS students is as follows:

Academic Withdrawal Policy

You can withdraw from an accelerated degree program or online course without academic record until the end of the first week of the course (all session lengths). Withdrawals with record are allowed until the end of week 3 for five- and six-week courses; until the end of week 5 for 10-week courses; and until the end of week 6 for 12-week courses. See the drop policy below for information on withdrawal fees. You must contact the Warrior Information Network to withdraw, or you will receive a failing grade and be charged for the class.

Withdrawal Fee Policy

An Accelerated Degree Program or online course can be dropped without charge until the end of the first week of the session (e.g., the first Friday of the classes). Saturday classes must be dropped on the Monday following the first class. Drops during the second week will receive a 25 percent charge. Third-week drops will receive a 50 percent charge. This applies to all session lengths. Drops can be handled by phone or via e-mail. Students will receive a drop confirmation email. Refer to the Course Schedules section for refund deadline schedule.

 

Account balances

How to view your student account balance:

  1. Visit my.IndianaTech.edu
  2. Sign in with your Indiana Tech network login and password
  3. Click the My Account tab at the top of the page
  4. Click the My Account Balances link in the My Account Info box
  5. Click on Course and Fee Statement to see detailed transactions

Past due accounts

All student accounts that are past due 30 days or more are in jeopardy of a financial hold and our normal collection process which may include being turned over to a collection agency.

If you would like to make a payment arrangement to pay a prior balance, please contact Tuition Management Systems. You will need to provide them with the following information:

  • You are a CPS student at Indiana Tech
  • You wish to make a payment arrangement to pay a prior balance
  • The amount of your prior balance, your name, and your student ID number

You can call them at 800.356.8329 or visit them on the web at www.afford.com.

Refunds

The business office processes refunds every working Tuesday and Friday for our CPS students unless instructed to hold funds until the end of the semester. You have to have a credit balance on your account to be reviewed for a refund. Please check the financial aid portal to make sure all of your financial aid information is completed so the financial aid office can disburse your awards to your student account. Once this is done if you have a credit balance on your account the business office has 14 days to send your refund to you.

All Indiana Tech refunds are handled through Higher One (see information below). Higher One will alert you when a refund has been processed for you. The financial aid office, the business office, and the Warrior Information Network do not have aid disbursement or refund dates available.

Disclaimer

There are circumstances which require Indiana Tech to reduce the amount of financial aid that was posted to your account. These circumstances are often the result of a student registering for too few classes, dropping classes, failing to attend classes, and/or not performing well in classes. When this occurs, the financial aid office reduces the award which results in the appropriate funds being pulled from your student account and sent back to the appropriate loan or grant. If a refund of excess financial aid has already occurred, you will be notified of the need to pay these funds back to Indiana Tech.

Higher One

Indiana Tech distributes student refunds through Higher One with the following two options for disbursement:

Debit Card

  • Each new student is issued a card when they have completed enrollment. The card is delivered by the USPS with instructions for activation.
  • With this option, funds are immediately available after Higher One receives and posts the refund file.
  • Cards can be used for POS purchases as well as ATM withdrawals. The daily limit for these transactions are $2,500/day for POS purchases, and $500/day for cash withdrawals. Certain transactions are subject to fees. Visit Higher One's web site for additional information.
  • Replacement cards can be ordered for a fee of $20. Once the order has been placed, the card will typically arrive in 5-7 business days. Contact the business office if your card has been lost or stolen.

Direct Deposit

If you do not wish to use the card, you may elect to have the funds directly deposited into your checking or savings account instead. Please contact the business office if you are interested in direct deposit.

With this option, your funds are available 2-3 days after Higher One receives and posts the refund file.

Visit Higher One’s web site for additional information.
