Payment Terms

Payment must be made by the due date listed in the Enrollment Services calendar in order to ensure the student's enrollment in registered classes. HFC accepts cash, checks, MasterCard, VISA, Discover for tuition and fee payments. Company vouchers are required for Sponsor Billing. Please bring these vouchers to the Cashiers Office. Checks returned to the College will result in a charge of $25 for each check returned and may result in the student being dropped from classes.

Tuition and fees are subject to change, without notice, by action of the Board of Trustees.

Henry Ford College assesses an excess contact hour fee, called Laboratory Tuition, for any course in which the contact hours exceed the standard contact hour. This is assessed at the rate of $65.00 per excess contact hour. The spring, summer, fall and winter course fee documents include the current courses with this particular fee. Please know that the College does reserve the right to make changes at any time.

Payment Policies

Previous balances must be paid in full before registering for the new term.

Tuition and fees for the new term are due by the dates listed in the Enrollment Services Calendar.

Students have three payment options:

  1. Sign up for the EZ Pay Program via WebAdvisor " EZPay" tab. The program requires a percentage of tuition down payment with the balance paid in monthly installments. The sooner you apply the smaller the downpayment.
  2. Pay by cash, check or credit card at the Cashiers Office in the Welcome Center.
  3. Pay by credit card through Webadvisor "View Account and Make a Payment".

Past Due Account Balances

Past Due Account Balances are subject to collection fee charges and credit bureau reporting. Collection fee charges are 20 percent of the past due account balance. These charges are used to pay the collection agency to collect the debt. In addition, students with past due account balances will not be eligible for future registration.

Residency Regulations

For tuition purposes, a resident student is one who has resided continuously in the Dearborn Public School District for at least six months immediately preceding the first day of classes, with the following exceptions:

  1. The legal residence of an unmarried minor is that of the parent or legal guardian regardless of where the student may be living.
  2. An international student on any status other than permanent immigrant is not a resident regardless of where the student may be living.

The college will not retroactively grant residency nor will tuition adjustments be permitted for previously attended semesters.

Residency must be validated each term.

Students may be asked for two items of documentation to prove residency before completing each enrollment and may be asked for further documentation at any time while in attendance. Students should see an enrollment associate at the Welcome Center to drop off residency documentation.

Acceptable items of documentation are the following:

  • Valid MI driver’s license or MI ID card

And one of the following documents:

  • Current Automobile Registration (with street address)
  • Current Auto Insurance Certification (with street address)
  • Current Voter’s Registration (front and back)
  • Current Lease Agreement (with signatures and dates)
  • Previous Year's Paid Tax Receipt (with name and address)

If a student has been mistakenly enrolled as a resident, the student will be required to pay all tuition that should have been computed according to non-resident status. Any student fraudulently enrolling as a resident is also subject to any of the following:

  • A late payment penalty
  • Suspension from classes
  • Permanent dismissal
