Students who register for courses at Northampton Community College accept full financial responsibility for tuition, fees and other academic and administrative costs assessed and charged under published College policies and procedures. Failure to satisfactorily attend or complete courses does not absolve a student from their financial obligations for those courses. Students who apply for financial aid are responsible for payment of any balance not covered by financial aid, including student and parent loans.
Students with outstanding financial obligations to Northampton Community College (NCC) including but not limited to tuition, fees, room and board, library materials, fines, loaned equipment, etc. will have a hold on their account and may not be permitted to register for a subsequent semester, receive official transcripts or grades, or participate in graduation until the hold is cleared.
NCC makes every attempt to contact each student to arrange satisfactory payment of the outstanding amount. If we have exhausted all efforts available to us and the debt is still outstanding, the unpaid account is referred to a private collection agency and reported to the national credit bureau systems.
After an account has been referred to private collection, the student is responsible for payment of all collection costs and attorney fees in addition to the original debt owed to NCC. Payment arrangements for amounts in collection must be made directly with the appropriate collection agency.
If you have a question regarding a financial hold, contact the Bursar's Office for information. If your hold indicates one of the hold codes noted below, your account has been referred to an outside collection agency. You can contact the collection agency directly by telephone or through their website as follows:
