Deferred Payment Policy


The purpose of this policy is to outline the requirement for Day Campus students to pay a deposit in order to reserve space at Columbia College.


This policy applies to all Day Campus students at Columbia College.


Upon receipt of a letter of acceptance from the Admissions Office, a $200 deposit is required by May 1 before the fall semester of initial enrollment or by December 15 prior to the spring semester of initial enrollment of all Day Campus students. The deposit is non-refundable after May 1 or December 15 respectively. This deposit is applied to the Day Campus student’s semester charges and assures the privilege of pre-registration for classes offered the succeeding semester. The deposit in conjunction with a submitted housing contract also reserves a room in a residence hall for qualifying students. The Day Campus student deposit can be paid at the Center for Student Success on the second floor of Missouri Hall on the Columbia College campus. The Center for Student Success may be reached by phone at: (573) 875-7252.
