Financial Information

Application Fee

There is a one-time, non-refundable application fee of $20.  It must be paid upon making application for admission. In order to take any number of courses for credit at True North College, a prospective student must first apply to the school and be accepted. This must be done prior to the beginning of the semester (Fall or Spring) in which a prospective student wants to take his or her first course(s) at True North College. Once accepted, the new True North College student may register for classes in that upcoming semester and can register for classes in future semesters as long as he or she remains in good academic standing. Applications can be submitted online and include, among other things, submission of a high school transcript or its equivalent.

Student Life Fee

Upon registration for classes in any given semester, all students pay a student life fee based on the number of courses taken in that semester ($30 per course). This fee covers course materials, hospitality, student life activities, general facilities use, and use of the library. It is paid along with the payment of tuition prior to each semester in which a student is enrolled in courses regardless of how many credits are being taken in that particular semester.

Each student enrolled in a course will receive course materials to include a syllabus and course teaching materials. Various forms of hospitality (snacks, drinks, etc.) will be provided in class for students from time to time. Student life activities will also be made available to students during each semester. Although students are not required to participate in student life activities, they are encouraged to take advantage of them. Students may check out book from the library and/or use the library for research and study. A fine of $1 per day will be charged for overdue books. Library fines must be paid in full before additional books can be checked out of the library.  Students may only check out books during a period in which they are currently enrolled in a course.

Graduation Fee

A graduation fee of $40 must be paid after all appropriate course work is completed.  Students will not receive their degree until the graduation fee and any other outstanding payments to the school are paid.

Payment & Registration Schedule

Students must pay in full for tuition and fees prior to the start of classes. This date also serves as the registration deadline. A student is not registered for a course until full payment is made. Payment can be made online or at the Academic Services Administrator’s office during office hours. If full payment cannot be made prior to the beginning of classes, a payment plan may be applied. Students must contact the Registrar’s office in advance of the beginning of classes in order to set up a payment plan.
