Student Accounts

Student Financial Services is responsible for billing and collecting amounts due from students and third-party sponsors. Students are required to pay the total amount due for college tuition by the payment deadline or submit an authorized letter of intent from a third-party sponsor, have financial aid, enroll in a tuition installment plan, or request a veteran deferment.

Student accounts will approve the deferment of fees based on approved third-party sponsorship documentation. Invoices are generated after the 100 percent refund date and mailed to the third party on behalf of the student. If the third-party sponsor fails to pay within 60 days of the invoice, the amount will immediately be due when the third-party contract is removed from the student account.

Students who incur charges for books, tuition, or financial aid overpays will receive a bill for the amount due. Payment is due within 30 days from the bill date. Failure to pay in a timely fashion will prevent receipt of transcripts, certificates, or diplomas, affect the ability to register for the next term and the student will incur collection costs. The College utilizes four collection agencies to assist in the collection of delinquent debts. Delinquent debt is reported to the credit bureaus.

Students with questions about their bills can check myFSCJ, select the Financial Account tile, and click on Account Inquiry. You may also contact a Student Financial Services office.

Financial holds and payments


Amounts owed to the College by a student, that total $200 or more, will generate a financial hold on the student’s record. Depending on the type of debt, a hold may be placed immediately upon recognition of the debt or only once overdue and determined delinquent.

Examples of types of debt that generate an immediate hold are returned checks or financial aid overpayments.

Examples of debt that generate a hold once overdue and not paid are book authorization charges and veteran deferments.

A financial hold will prevent a student from registering for a subsequent term and from receiving transcripts. The debt must be less than $200 before the financial hold is lifted.

Payment plans through A/R Collect can be made for debts that have not been sent to collections. Check your student email for payment plan offers or email An active payment plan will prevent a student from being reported to a collection agency. Collection costs will not be added if an A/R Collect Plan is activated before the account is sent to collections.

Students must acknowledge and complete the Terms and Conditions annually in their  myFSCJ To-Do List.
