Tuition and Fees

Student tuition and fees are due in full at the time of registration. It is the responsibility of the student to verify, prior to the first day of classes, that sufficient aid is in place to cover tuition and fee charges for the semester. Payment arrangements should be made prior to the beginning of the semester, if sufficient financial aid has not been awarded to the student's account.

Payments can be made by phone by calling (870) 512-7802, or in-person via the cashier at any of our campus locations.

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 through FACTS.  

Cash-paying students enrolled in the Commercial Driver Training Institute (CDTI) program will be required to pay the cost in full upon registration of the program.  Payments are made by phone by calling 870-512-7802, or in person at the cashier window on the Newport campus. CDTI 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.

Refunds

Refunds: Unregistering and Withdraw Policy 

Any student who withdraws (unregisters) from ASU-Newport during a term of enrollment prior to the census date, will not be responsible for tuition and fee charges for any/all courses for which the student unregisters. Any payments made by the student prior to the census date will be refundedUnregistering from courses on or before the census date will not incur a tuition, fees, or related changes on their student account. Additionally, there will not be Ws on their academic transcript.  

NOTE: Students who do not attend classes before the census date are typically dropped for non-attendance. However, it is the responsibility of the student to drop the courses for which he or she did not attend prior to the census date. 

Students who choose to officially withdraw from courses after the census date but before the last day to withdraw from courses accept all tuition, fees, and charges associated with the courses. Students who choose to withdraw from all courses and have received Title IV funds may be subject to additional charges due to the requirement of ASU-Newport to calculate unearned money via the return to title iv calculation.  

To view census dates and last day to withdraw from courses, please review the current ASU-Newport Academic Calendar 

Exception: Commercial Driver Training students will be allowed to withdraw (unregister) from courses (and be eligible for a refund if payments have been made on the student account) during the first eight (8) days of class.

Outstanding Account Balance Procedure

Students can check account balances within the student portal.  Students with an outstanding balance on account at the end of the term are placed on financial hold by the business office. The hold prevents the student from registering for another term or receiving a transcript until the past due balance is resolved.

If the student plans to graduate and an amount is owed, it will prevent the student from receiving a final transcript or diploma until the final balance is fully resolved.

If a student has an outstanding balance after a term ends, the balance will be considered delinquent,  Delinquent accounts are sent to the State of Arkansas to be deducted from state income tax refunds. Delinquent accounts that still remain are then sent to collections.
