All financial aid is credited to the student’s account, with the exception of student loans received in check form and Federal Work Study payroll checks, which are released at the Cashier’s Office.

Refer to Financial Aid in this section of the Catalog and Handbook, or contact the Financial Aid Office with questions.

Fee waivers and PC 191s. Fee waivers are available for full-time employees of the Tennessee Board of Regents and University of Tennessee systems and the state of Tennessee executive, judicial, and legislative branches.

The waiver allows enrollment into one course per semester on a space available basis, provided the employee registers for the course after the registration period as defined by the College. Eligible employees can register during the last week of the registration period (Refer to the Academic Calendar) through the first day of the class. Employees registering into a course prior to the end of the registration period are not eligible for fee waiver payment.

A completed Fee Waiver form should be submitted each semester to meet fee payment deadlines but must be submitted within the first two weeks of classes to be accepted for the semester.

Fee waivers do not apply to continuing education programs.

Tuition discounts. Spouse and dependents of employees of the Tennessee Board of Regents and University of Tennessee educational systems may register at any time and receive a 50 percent discount on fees, provided the dependents are 26 years or under in age. Appropriate forms to request this discount are available at the employee’s work location.

Dependents of employees of the state of Tennessee and dependents of certified public school employees (Note: Spouses do not receive discounts) may register at any time and receive a 25 percent discount on maintenance fees, provided the dependents are 23 years or under in age. Appropriate forms to request this discount are available at the work location or at www.pstcc.edu/bursar. A completed fee discount form should be submitted each semester to meet fee payment deadlines but must be submitted within the first two weeks of classes to be accepted for the semester.

Fee discounts do not apply to continuing education programs.

Sponsored payments. Upon receipt of authorization from a third–party sponsoring agency (i.e., Vocational Rehabilitation, TRA, armed forces, Veterans Affairs, private companies, etc.), the College will post a payment to the student’s account. Once the payment appears, the student must log into the myPellissippi account and complete the schedule confirmation process. The schedule must be confirmed by the fee payment deadline or the schedule will be deleted.

Deferred payment plan. Pellissippi State offers deferred fee payment options to eligible students. The deferred payment plan applies to all fee charges and requires an initial payment equal to a $20 service fee plus 50 percent of the student’s account balance (after deducting “authorized” financial aid). The remaining balance due is payable in two equal installments later in the semester.

There is a late charge of $25 per payment if payments are not received by the College by the due date. Note: Students may still owe a balance even after completely withdrawing from all classes.

The deferred payment plan is not offered during summer sessions.

To enroll in the deferred payment plan, students must make the required initial payment to meet fee payment deadlines. For more information, visit the Cashier’s Web page at www.pstcc.edu/bursar.
