The two types of student employment are:

The following resources can help you find other sources of financial aid. Beware of scams and services that will charge you a fee!
AmeriCorps provides full-time educational awards in return for community service. You can work before, during or after your post-secondary education, and you can use the funds either to pay current educational expenses or to repay federal student loans. For more information, call 1-800-942-2677 or visit http://www.americorps.org/
Businesses and labor organizations: Many companies, businesses and labor organizations have programs to help employees or members and their families pay for post-secondary education. Ask about scholarship programs and the application process.
Organizations: Foundations, religious organizations, fraternities or sororities and civic clubs offer student financial aid. Also, search community organizations and civic groups such as the YMCA, 4-H Club, Kiwanis, Rotary, the Girl or Boy Scouts, etc. Organizations connected with your field of interest can also be helpful.

Budgeting for Books
Your tuition does not include the cost of books that are required for your class. For more infomation about budgeting for books and purchasing them, click here.
Students can view their accounts online by going to www.ec.edu and logging into “My EC.” Invoices are not sent through the mail, rather it is the student's responsibility to keep track of their student account balance online. Payments may be submitted directly online using a debit or credit card, in person at the Cashier’s Office, or mailed to Emmanuel College, P.O. Box 129, Franklin Springs, GA, 30639. Interest-free payment plan enrollment option is also available online. Paper statements will not be mailed unless a specific need exists.
PAYMENT OF ACCOUNTS
In order for a student to be activated for a particular semester, the total charges for the semester, including any balance remaining from a previous semester, must be covered by some combination of the following by August 1st for fall semester and by December 15th for spring semester:
- Finalized financial aid, including all loans, grants, and scholarships. (Please note, the amount of financial aid received may not be sufficient to cover total charges for the semester.)
- A signed and approved EMMANUEL COLLEGE PAYMENT PLAN contract accepted by Emmanuel College. (Emmanuel College maintains sole discretion to determine if payments under the plan are reasonable and likely to be paid.)
- Payment on account by cash, check, money order, or approved charge to a valid debit or credit card.
If the student’s financial aid is not finalized by August 1st for fall semester and by December 15th for spring semester, then in order to be activated, the student must cover all semester charges, including any prior balance, by some acceptable combination of items 2 and 3 above by August 1st for fall semester and by December 15th for spring semester. If financial aid is subsequently finalized, then one or more of the items used to cover the charges may be reduced or refunded to the student.
10% EARLY PAYMENT DISCOUNT
For this year we are offering a 10% Early Payment Discount for Fall 2014 to new students who settle their account in full at Registration on or before July 15. The 10% Early Payment Discount is calculated based on the total amount paid out-of-pocket by the student, including any student loans applied to their outstanding account balance. A 5% discount will be available for those who settle on or before July 31.
FAILURE TO COVER CHARGES
If a student fails to cover the charges for a semester by the date specified above, the following procedures will apply:
1. The student will not be activated and will not be allowed to attend classes.
2. If a resident student, the student will not be allowed to move into the residence hall.
3. The student’s transcript will not reflect enrollment or registration for the semester.
4. Charges and financial aid for the semester will be removed from the student’s account.
DEFAULT ON EMMANUEL COLLEGE PAYMENT PLANS
If a student fails to fund a monthly payment on their EMMANUEL COLLEGE PAYMENT PLAN, the student may be administratively withdrawn from school for that semester and the following procedures shall apply:
1. If a resident student, the student must move out of the residence hall by midnight of the Sunday following the administrative withdrawal.
2. The student’s transcript will reflect the withdrawal for the semester.
3. Charges and financial aid for the semester will be prorated according to the Federal Withdrawal Calculation.
Any time a balance exists after August 1st for fall semester or after December 15th for spring semester, a FINANCE CHARGE OF 1.5% PER MONTH will be applied to any past due balances. This is an ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE OF 18%. If a student’s account must be submitted to a collection agency for collection, all costs of collection will be added to the account and must be paid in order to settle the account.
Emmanuel College reserves the right to suspend and/or dismiss a student for nonpayment of amounts due. In the case of a suspension, a fee of $100.00 will be charged for reinstatement after the account is paid in full. Diplomas and/or transcripts will not be released until all outstanding balances on accounts with the College have been settled.
Emmanuel College, like most colleges, must make commitments in advance for faculty, staff, equipment, supplies, utilities, and other operating expenses for the entire year. Therefore, the college policy considers the acceptance of registration as a contract binding student and parents for charges for the entire semester.
However, when it becomes necessary to withdraw from school, reduction in tuition and residence charges will be made according to the refund policy as outlined by Federal Law. Emmanuel College has adopted the Federal Policy as the official refund policy of the college. To be eligible for a refund of tuition and residence charges, a student must complete the official withdrawal process or be administratively withdrawn.
Depending on when a student becomes no longer enrolled, the law may provide for a refund of unearned tuition, fees, and residence charges for students who withdraw, drop out, are expelled, fail to return from an approved leave of absence, or fail to complete the period of enrollment for which they were charged.
The Federal Refund Policy mandates that the College calculate the cancelation of tuition and fees and refunds of Title IV funds based on the percentage of the semester the student has completed. Any student who has completed more than sixty percent (60%) of the semester will not be eligible for any refund. More details may be obtained from the Office of Student Accounts or Financial Aid Office.
