Although Palm Beach Career (PBC) School does not currently offer Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA), it does offer a combination of aid programs, including scholarships, payment plans and loans. Based on eligibility, students may qualify for funding from one or more of these programs.
Students must be admitted to an eligible degree or diploma program of study in order to receive financial aid. To maintain eligibility, students must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards.
HOW TO PAY
- Loans & Scholarships
- Online Payments
- Payment Plans
- In Person or Mail
All Tuition and fees are due and payable in full by the due date posted on the fee invoice. Tuition and fees are subject to change without notice.
Payments are applied to College “Charges Due” on student accounts based on a priority of paying the oldest charge first.
Palm Beach Career (PBC) School offers several different options to make it easier for students to pay their bill, including loans, scholarships, online payments, and in person or mail payment plan options.
Students must continually monitor their email and account information to ensure tuition and fees and other charges are paid in a timely manner. Lack of written notification of the tuition and fee debt does not negate the student’s responsibility to pay by the published deadline.
Students that are delinquent in paying their current term tuition and fees are subject to having their class schedule cancelled. Unpaid Tuition balances result in hold on transcripts and course registration for the current and subsequent semesters.
The College shall exert every effort to collect all delinquent accounts and may employ the services of a collection agency. This includes, but is not limited to, contact by manual calling methods, prerecorded or artificial voice messages, emails, automated telephone dialing systems, and letters. Any address or phone number associated with an account, currently or in the future, including wireless telephone numbers, regardless of whether it incurs charges or not, can be used in this collection effort.
