Employer Reimbursement Payment Plan

The Employer Reimbursement Payment Plan is designed for students who have a pre-approved employer reimbursement plan. Many employers offer reimbursement for educational tuition as part of the benefits package. Some employer plans will even cover the cost of fees, books, and other educational expenses.  This plan allows students to register for classes and postpone payment until 42 days after the semester ends. There is a $10.00 non-refundable enrollment fee for one payment. The following conditions apply to this program.

  1. The student’s employer must be a third party other than the student and agree prior to registration to pay for authorized tuition and fees.
  2. Students with less than 100% tuition and fee reimbursement must pay the uncovered portion, in full, on or before the due date.
  3. Any portion of the student account balance not paid by the employer, such as books and other charges, must be paid by the student prior to enrolling in the plan.
  4. The student is responsible to submit statements and grades to their employer to ensure that payment is received in a timely manner.
  5. The student is responsible for payment, in full, of all amount(s) due under this plan on the due date whether or not the amount has been paid by the employer.  If the employer refuses to reimburse the student, for any reason, the student remains responsible for payment of all charges.
  6. To submit your employer reimbursement policy for approval, email your employer’s policy to onestop@css.edu for approval. Be sure to include your employer’s name, your name and the amount to be reimbursed. If you have any questions regarding the employer reimbursement payment plan, email onestop@css.edu.
  7. Once approved go to my.css.edu, (search on payment options). Payment plans are available for Fall, Spring and Summer terms.

Email onestop@css.edu if there are:

  • Changes in enrollment
  • Changes in Employer Policy or Employment
  • Additional charges assessed to your account
  • Financial Aid adjustments
