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:

  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.
