The Purge!

Show us the money!

If you didn’t know, tuition was due last Friday, July 29.

Now, it’s important to understand that “due” means we need to know where the money is coming from. You may be getting Financial Aid (the easiest part of the list), you may be getting a scholarship from an outside organization, you may be paying some of it on your own.

For the “paying on your own” part, you can set up a FACTS payment plan where you pay part now and the rest in installments over the semester.

If you don’t talk to the Business Office about paying tuition you are going to be ‘purged’ or dropped from your classes.

If you did not plan to attend Genesee, don’t make us purge you, go into Genesis and you can drop all of your classes yourself. It’s annoying if you make us do the dropping for you. (Hey! It is. Just being honest!)

Now. This is what some of you have been waiting for. When students are dropped from their classes, seats may open up in classes that have been full for a long time. Any empty seat is available on a first-come/first-served basis. There are no waiting lists for classes so it’s up to you to pay attention on Thursday night and Friday morning to see exactly when the purge is complete. If there’s an opening, it’s yours for the taking.

Students who are purged but decide they want to attend Genesee are required to show how you’re going to pay the tuition at the time of registration. You cannot register online and you must work with an advisor to resolve your academic issues and your financial issues at the same time. And, you know what? There’s no guarantee that you can get back into the courses you were dropped from. Major bummer.
