Harding’s financial well-being is dependent upon prompt payment of accounts. For this reason, Harding transcripts and diplomas will not be released if a student has failed to pay any indebtedness to the University. Exception is made for government loans if they are not past due. At the discretion of the administration, a student may be suspended for non-payment of indebtedness. Students cannot receive transcripts, receive diplomas or register until all account balances have been satisfied with the University. Failure to meet financial obligations to the University may result in the delinquent account being placed with a collection agency. Students are responsible for all attorney fees and other collection costs incurred by the University in collecting accounts.
There will be a $30.00 service charge on all returned paper checks; $35.00 on returned web payments.
All charges are due on September 1 for the fall term and February 1 for spring term. Paper checks or Money Orders may be mailed to the Business Office or given in person. Credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express) or electronic check payments are made online through a third party vendor, CASHNET.
Refund of Tuition
Since operating costs of a university must be based upon an estimated enrollment, students are granted admission with the understanding that they are to remain for a full term. A student, who enrolls in a class but does not attend or stops attending and does not officially withdraw, may not receive a refund. An official withdrawal from the university begins in the Student Life Office. A refund of tuition will be made based on the following schedule. (Days indicated are days of the term, excluding Saturday and Sunday.)

No Refund of Tuition
After a student withdraws from the university, room and board will be refunded on a pro rata basis. No refunds for board will be made for absences while enrolled in the university.
If a student‘s withdrawal is a result of misconduct, the institution is under no obligation to make any refunds.
Residence Hall Security Deposit: The security deposit will be kept as long as a student lives in university housing. When the student leaves university housing, the deposit will be applied to any unpaid balance on the student’s account or it will be refunded within 90 days.
