Government Shutdown Causes Tuition Deferral

By Claudia Ugbana

 The College will be offering assistance to students affected by the government showdown for the spring 2019 semester. 

According to The College’s website, students can apply for a tuition deferral by completing a form. 

Michelle Campbell, vice president for Institutional Advancement, said, “We put up a basic form on our website which students can submit. They have to provide some kind of documentation such as a furlough notice they received from the government, or their parents received. The form is routed to our student’s account manager who will then work directly to these students to ensure that we meet their needs.” 

Campbell said the account department will assess each student specifically and then determine what the best approach to helping them is. 

“We want the students to be able to start the spring semester and hopefully the government will be up and running. If the government shutdown is not over by then, we have to re-evaluate what the process will be internally,” she said.
