Tuition and Fees
Student tuition and fees are due in full at the time of registration. Students are expected to pay all tuition and fee charges before attending classes. Payment can be made in person at the Business Office in the Student Community Center. Payments can be made with cash, check, debit or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover). Checks returned due to insufficient funds are subject to a returned check fee of $30.
It is the responsibility of the student to verify with the Financial Aid office that sufficient aid is in place to cover tuition and fee charges for the semester. For students that do not have financial aid in place and are unable to pay the full amount of tuition and fees before classes begin, we offer an online payment plan (FACTS) →. At the FACTS website, you can establish or view details of the payment plan. A 25% down-payment is required to enroll. If payment arrangements are not made prior to the first day of classes of the semester, students may be dropped for non-payment.

Driver Training Institute Refund Policy
All of the tuition will be refunded if the student leaves
during the first eight days of enrollment. Thereafter, no refund will apply.
The student is responsible for all tuition and fee charges whether they attend class or not. Non-attendance of classes does not automatically drop or withdraw you from classes. Proper procedures for a drop or withdrawal must be followed.
Outstanding Account Balance Procedure
Students are responsible for all tuition and fees which are due and payable upon registration of classes unless a student has qualified for financial aid. Monthly statements are mailed to all students who have an outstanding account balance. Students with an outstanding balance on their account at the end of the term are placed on financial hold by the business office. This hold prevents the student from registering for another term so they can resolve their current balance.
If the student plans to graduate and they owe on their account, the registrar’s office will contact the student and request that they contact the business office in regards to their account before they graduate.
If any student continues to have an outstanding balance after a term, the balance will be considered delinquent and will be sent to the State of Arkansas to be deducted from their state income tax. If no payment is made after this process, the account balance will be sent to collections.

Outstanding Account Balance Procedure
Cash paying students will be required to pay the cost upon registration of the Commercial Driver Training program. Students who are sponsored by a third party will have their account credited for payment when the billing processes are complete and the paying entity makes payment for the sponsored student.
If a sponsored student is declined at any time, that student becomes responsible for the tuition due the University. Declined students must contact the business office in order to make payment arrangements which will be evaluated on an individual basis. Students unable to meet their obligation at this point may be asked to withdraw from the program.
Statements are periodically mailed to students with outstanding account balances. Students with an outstanding balance on their account at the conclusion of the program are placed on financial hold by the business office. This hold prevents the students from acquiring official academic records from this institution and/or registering for any additional classes until their account is cleared.
If any student continues to have an outstanding balance after the term, the balance will be considered delinquent and will be sent to the State of Arkansas to be deducted from their next year state income tax.
If no payment is made after this process, the account balance will be sent to collections.
