Holds and Late Fees

It is the policy of College of Charleston to assess late fees on payments that are not received in a timely manner.  Balances that result from incomplete financial aid requirements are also considered to be delinquent.

Payments are considered timely if they are:

  • Received on or before the initial due date for each semester; or
  • If the student has enrolled in the payment plan, the payment is received on or before the due date stated on the student’s eBill (This applies to all payment arrangement payments other than the one due on the initial due date).


  • If the student is late making the arranged payment then a hold will be placed on the students' account. In order to have the hold removed, please contact the Treasurer's Office at 843-953-5572 or treasurer@cofc.edu.
  • If a payment is late by five days, the Treasurer's Office has the right to remove the student from the payment plan.

PLEASE NOTE: As of January 1, 2008 late fees will be assessed as 3.75% of the balance due.
