Have Your Say: New payment policy
Charles Innis/The Guardsman
Did the new policy of dropping students from classes for non-payment of fees affect you?
“It was easier to get into classes, I didn’t have any trouble getting into classes this semester whereas last semester I had a really hard time, I didn’t get a lot of the classes that I needed. But it definitely seemed like there were less classes being offered and less sections. I got the notice and I paid it so I guess not.
“Not really, but it affected me in a way that it bothers me how it has affected others. People work hard to try to get enrolled and now it’s being so limited and it’s unfair because a lot of people depend on this school. It’s unfair that its becoming so limited when before everybody and anybody could potentially come.”
“No. It was easier for me to get classes. I got my classes in and didn’t really focus on anything else. I paid it on time … I think it’s kind of wrong though because a lot of people here—they come on a budget so if they can’t pay for their classes that early then how are they supposed to get educated?
“I have to speak to my counselor about it because my financial aid isn’t coming in for another few weeks, they’re aware of it though. As long as financial aid counselors and enrollment counselors look at it in a case by case basis I guess it’s a good thing.”
“Not me. I paid my fees, so it’s all good. But people are going to pay their stuff eventually anyways. It’s kind of dumb to just drop them completely from school.”
