Payment of Tuition and Fees
Unless a deferment is granted, students should pay the total amount of their semester or summer term tuition and fees by the due date on the statement of account they receive and should use a check for exact amount, MasterCard, or VISA. A special handling fee is assessed for students who enroll after the start of classes and a 1.5% default charge is assessed for any balance billed but not paid by the due date.
If the student's eligibility to receive financial aid is verifiable, the director of student financial assistance may authorize the deferment of payment of tuition and fees in accordance with the Board of Regents Policy and Procedures Manual (Chapter 2, Section E). The student's obligation to pay regularly assessed tuition and fees is not reduced by an approval to defer payment.
1. Those students who have fulfilled the application requirements and whose awards have been made by the June packaging date, but whose aid has not been disbursed. Deferments may be granted only to the approved level of financial aid eligibility. The amount of tuition and fees over and above the anticipated financial aid award must be paid by the student.
2. Veterans receiving benefits. Full tuition/fee deferment.
3. International students. Full tuition/fee deferment.
Tuition and fee payment checks that are returned uncollectible by financial institutions will be subject to a $30 charge, in addition to all other fees.
Withholding student records

K-State Student Union repair and replacement
This fee is used for repairs and replacements at the K-State Student Union.
Recreation Complex expansion fee
In 1991 a student referendum was passed allowing bonds to be issued to support the expansion of the Peters Recreation Complex. This bond issue is to be retired by the continuation of part of the previously assessed fee for the retirement of the original construction bond indebtedness.
Bramlage Coliseum repair and replacement fee
1992 student legislation provided for the continuation of a portion of the debt retirement fee previously assessed for the Bramlage Coliseum bonds following their retirement in May of 1993.
Library expansion fee
In 1991 a student referendum was passed providing for a $5 million commitment by students to partially fund the expansion of the library. This commitment is to provide a bond issue to be retired, in part, by a continuation of student debt service fees which were previously assessed for the retirement of Bramlage and Holton Hall bonds.
This fee is used for a range of student interests and activities.

Office of Student Activities and Services
