Finance Policies & Procedures

This page serves to provide additional information regarding student financial aid policies, rights and responsibiilties, and applying for financial aid.

Policies on Payment of Tuition, Fees and Refunds

Application And Registration Fee

A nonrefundable application and processing fee of $55.00 is required of all applicants.  Upon acceptance to BHSN, a nonrefundable registration fee of $350.00 must be made payable by the date indicated on the acceptance letter.  Failure to do so within the specified time may result in cancellation of acceptance.  Upon receipt of the registration fee, an entrance interview is scheduled with the Coordinator of Student Services.

 Semester Bill

Students are billed three times a year, prior to the start of each semester and summer session.  Bills are sent via email to the addresses provided. Students who fail to meet their financial obligations before the beginning of classes, will not be allowed to attend class and/or clinical.  Any tuition payment not received by the due date may be subject to a late fee.

 Registration And Payment

Tuition and fees are payable by mail or in person.  Payment must be by check or money order (payable to Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital School of Nursing) or by MasterCard or VISA.  All charges are subject to change.

The Operations Administrator conducts registration and provides registration information to all students prior to each semester.  Students registering for classes must be in good financial standing.  Any prior balance must be cleared before a student will be allowed to register.  Release of grades, academic transcript and diploma will be denied if all financial obligations are not met.  A $35.00 fee will be charged for any check that does not clear for payment.

Students are required to pay their bills in full in order to continue at Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital School of Nursing.  Students awarded aid after courses begin may be reimbursed for tuition they have already paid.  Any changes in course enrollments or credit status may affect financial aid eligibility and/or loan repayment schedules.  Financial aid recipients should inform the Financial Aid Director of any course changes.  If there is a balance due as a result of such an adjustment, the student is responsible for this amount and will be given a deadline by which full payment must be made.

Students who fail to make arrangements to pay their bill before the beginning of classes will not be allowed to attend class and/or clinical.  Students who have not attended to their financial obligations will receive written notification from the Registrar to refrain from attending any course offering.

 Withdrawal Policy

The BHSN withdrawal policy applies to all full and part-time students enrolled in classes at BHSN.  This policy applies to all tuition, fees, and other assessed charges (except application and registration fees when applicable).  There will be no refunds after the tenth week of classes.  The date and time that the withdrawal notice is received will be the official date and time of withdrawal.

All withdrawals from BHSN must be communicated, by the student, in writing, to the Operations Administrator.
