Welcome to the Business Office!
We are here to assist you with questions regarding your tuition and fees. We also process third-party funding and assist with the disbursement of financial aid.

View Your Student Account Balance On-line
Central Lakes College does not mail tuition statements. It is the responsibility of the student to review their account on-line and pay their bill in a timely manner. Students can also pay their balance on-line using e-check, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover. Access your account online any time at Central Lakes College E-Services

_Q0J5493Student Communication
Central Lakes College has designated the college-issued email account as the primary method of communication with students regarding topics of an academic, student service, or administrative nature. The College may still disseminate official notices via other methods.

Registered Courses At Central Lakes College
Registration in classes commits you to a financial obligation. Classes must be dropped during the free drop/add period to receive a full refund of tuition and fees.

  • If you wish to not be enrolled for the term, you should drop your classes before the published drop deadline.
  • Do not assume your courses will be canceled. You are personally responsible for making changes (drops or adds) to your schedule, and for verifying that they have been made correctly. Print a copy of your academic schedule whenever you make a change.
  • After the deadline to drop a course, refunds are issued only for complete withdrawals in accordance with the published CLC refund schedule.
  • Courses will only be canceled if no payment is made, no NelNet payment plan is in place, or an approved deferment is not met prior to the published due date.
  • All balances must be paid in full prior to registering for future semesters. After the term is over, any unpaid balance may be turned over to the Minnesota Department of Revenue, Collections Division.
