Frequently Asked Questions
Where do I pay for parking tickets?
FAQ Answer: Parking tickets may be paid online or to any DSCC cashier located in the Eller Building, the One Stop, the Jimmy Naifeh Center or the Gibson County Center.
How do I pay my fees?
FAQ Answer: Once you have registered , you must make all your financial arrangements through the DSCC Business Office. Remember, you must pay for classes (or make financial arrangements) before the payment due date to reserve your seat in the class. You may pay your fees in person, by mail or online. Select the Paying for College tab on the www.dscc.edu website to see how to pay instructions, as well as, financial assistance options.
What is a purge date?
FAQ Answer: These are dates determined by DSCC administration when all unpaid classes will be dropped. The reason for purges is to make class seats available to others. To reserve your seat, you must make payment arrangements on or before the payment due date or at the time you register if you register after the payment due date.
I did not know that I needed to drop my courses since I was not attending. Why do I owe money?
FAQ Answer: Students who sign up for a course assume responsibility for payment. Although DSCC does purge students for non-payment, do not assume that you will be purged. The only way to guarantee that you will not be liable for the costs of the courses for which you registered is to officially drop prior to the beginning of the term. If you drop a class on or after the first day of the term, you will not receive a full refund.
When will my loan money be available?
FAQ Answer: Loan checks are applied to the eligible students accounts once DSCC receives the money from the lender. It may take as long as 4 weeks for a loan to be processed. Do the loan application process by the Financial Aid priority date to assure your information gets processed before the payment due dates.
I do not have my books yet. Do I still need to go to class?
FAQ Answer: Yes, every class meeting should be attended by the student in order to make satisfactory progress and pass the class. Books are available (on reserve) at the LRC for students to use until they are able to purchase their books so they can complete their assignments. You may be eligible to apply for a Book Voucher. Select the Paying for College tab then select Financial Aid Available to find out more about this Book Voucher program or contact the Business Office at 731-286-3310.
Why do I have to pay for auditing a class?
FAQ Answer: DSCC policy states that students enrolling in regular college classes as auditors will pay the same fees as those enrolling for credit. See page 56 in the DSCC catalog.
I need to make more print copies and I have run out of my allotted amount for the semester. Can I buy more? How much are they?
FAQ Answer: Yes, you may purchase more copies at the Business office, the Jimmy Naifeh Center or Gibson County Center at 10 cents per sheet.
Can I carry over my allotted amount of print copies if I do not use them all this semester? How about print copies that I paid for?
FAQ Answer: Copy totals begin anew each Fall semester. Any allotted or purchased copies that you have remaining after the Fall and Spring semesters can be carried over and added to the allotted amount of copies you have for that next semester. Your account is zeroed out at the end of the summer session and a fresh allotment is given for the next fall semester.
