The Tuition Guarantee Program at North Central State College is an incentive for all new and returning students to enroll full-time and pay the same tuition rate for four consecutive years. This program is intended to encourage students to complete their degree or certificate. The tuition rate is “guaranteed” not to increase in four years for students who are eligible.

All new or returning students, including out-of-state students who enroll full-time in a Fall or Spring term, are eligible for the tuition guarantee. The student must register prior to their fi­rst term or before the end of the second week of the semester.

To be eligible for the Tuition Guarantee Program, the student must:

  • Be a new or returning student
  • Sign a TGP agreement*, and meet the following criteria:
    • Maintain enrollment in at least twelve (12) credit hours per semester
    • Continue to enroll each Fall and Spring semester** during the entire period of the Tuition Guarantee Program, which is four (4) consecutive years from the start of enrollment
    • Complete an academic plan by the second semester of enrollment at North Central State College
    • Maintain at least a 2.5 GPA with the College.

The tuition guarantee applies to the following fees: instructional fees, general/technology fees, and out-of-state surcharges. It does not apply to supplemental fees.

If the student does not enroll full-time (12-15 credit hours), he or she will be charged the current indexed rate of tuition for the semester depending on the number of credit hours taken. The best value is full-time.

For more information, the Admissions office at 419-755-4761.

* Contract ends four years after the initial enrollment

** Summer enrollment (part-time or full-time) is optional at the guaranteed rate. Students starting in the summer, but not taking a full-time load can begin the tuition guarantee program in the following Fall semester.

The College has a policy of scheduled refunds for students who withdraw from credit courses during a standard academic term. (NOTE: Recipients of financial aid who withdraw from all classes should refer to the Return of Title IV Funds Policy in the Financial Aid section of this catalog.) Each individual course on the web site lists the refund and withdrawal dates.  100% and 50% refund amounts are determined by the percentage of course completed based on the beginning and ending dates for each course. Flexibly scheduled courses have individual refund and withdrawal dates.

A student’s residency dictates the fees charged. The Office of Student Records is responsible for assuring that each student at North Central State College has the proper residency status. Residency information is available at the Office of Student Records. Students may apply for a change in their residency status through the Office of Student Records. Applications for a change in residency status must be submitted, along with all required documentation, no later than one week prior to the first day of the semester in order to be considered for that semester. Applications received after this date, if approved, will take effect for the subsequent semester.
