Student Responsibilities

Students are responsible for full tuition and fee payments on their payment due date. Due dates are shown on page 5 of the quarterly class schedule , or view Important Dates online.

You may qualify to participate in our Tuition Installment Payment Plan. TIPP allows students to pay for their college education in three installments, interest free. The plan covers tuition and class fees.

Students are responsible to officially withdraw from classes they are not attending by completing the necessary paperwork required by the Admissions/Registration office.

The college has the authority to withdraw students from classes for non-payment.

Application for financial aid does not constitute payment. If a financial aid or agency funding has been granted AND has been generated into the cashiering system, it will be automatically applied approximately two weeks prior to the tuition due date. However, if the entire amount is not paid, the student is responsible for knowing the remaining amount due and making payment by the published due date.

Technology Plan

Every year Spokane Falls develops a Technology Plan. This plan begins with input from students and department faculty identifying their needs. The departments then prioritize these needs and incorporate them into their Division plan. The combined total of all requests totals nearly 2 million dollars.

Once identified and prioritized, the college faces the daunting challenge of funding the Technology Plan. The primary source of funding has been the Technology Fee, which typically covers about 25% of the Technology Plan. The Technology Fee funding has provided the college with state-of-the-art technology resources meeting a significant number of the instructional and student needs identified in past Technology Plans.

Additional Costs

  • Health or accident insurance may be purchased at the cashier’s office.
  • Books will be available approximately two weeks before the quarter begins.
  • View a Cost of Education worksheet in the Financial Aid web site.
