Paying for Central

Like many other private Christian colleges, Central operates on a zero-balance policy. In essence, this means that each semester’s bill must be fully accounted for prior to beginning said semester’s classes. 

Know What You Owe

The crucial portion of your 17-18 out of pocket cost is what your Financial Aid award letter showed you owing after scholarships, grants, and student loans. This amount is your cost for the whole year, with each semester’s share being half of that total number. Any additional fees or charges over the Cost of Attendance are not included in this number and will need to be paid outright. A list of these fees can be found here by clicking Academics – Course Catalogs & Policies

How it Works

In order for students to finance their time at Central in a way that works for them, the Business Office offers two options for payment plans.

Option 1

  • Semester balance must be paid in full by September 15 (Fall) and February 15 (Spring).
  • Students may pay via credit card, check, money order, or cash. 
  • Payments can be paid directly to the Business Office during normal office hours (8a.m. – 5 p.m.). 
  • If mailing a payment, please put it to the attention of the Business Office so your payment can be processed easily and efficiently.

Option 2

  • Payments are due on the 15th of each month, with each month’s portion being ¼ of that semester’s balance. 
  • These payments must be made via automatic withdrawal from either a bank account or credit/debit card.
