Facilities and Services Available to Students with Disabilities

Price of Attendance
The College makes available to prospective and enrolled students information about the price of attendance, or in other words the costs associated with enrollment. Costs include tuition and fees, books, tools, supplies, and any additional charges for a course or program in which a student is enrolled or expresses an interest. Bridgerland Technical College maintains the web-page ‘Tuition, Fees, Costs & Refunds’ (btech.edu/students/tuition) which outlines current tuition rates and fee schedules and links students to all costs by educational (certificate seeking) program and continuing education (short-term) course.
Refund Policy, Requirements for Withdrawal and Return of Title IV Financial Aid
Bridgerland Technical College’s policy is to treat all students in a fair and equitable manner in assessing tuition, fees, and other charges, and in returning (repayment) unearned tuition, fees, and other charges to students in a timely manner.
Tuition, fees, and other charges are generated at the time of registration for course(s) and are the responsibility of the student. Because students may register for new courses at any time, Title IV Aid, if applicable, is disbursed directly to the student rather than being credited to the student accounts receivable account. The student is responsible to pay Bridgerland Technical College for total actual charges, net of scholarships and other credits through whatever means or sources of income available to the student, including but not limited to personal resources, Title IV aid, or other sources.
Prior to officially withdrawing from Bridgerland Technical College, students who are considering “withdrawal” from their program and Title IV eligible courses should consult with Bridgerland Technical College’s Registrar’s Office and Bridgerland Technical College’s Financial Aid Office to learn the financial consequences associated with “withdrawal.” Official notice of withdrawal must be communicated by the student to the Registrar’s Office.
Title IV funds are earned based on the amount of time the student was scheduled to be in attendance. A determination of the earned and unearned portions of Title IV aid as of the date the student ceased attendance will be calculated by the Financial Office at the time of official withdrawal.
Upon official withdrawal by the student, any amount owed by the College to the student will be refunded (repayment) to the student in accordance with Bridgerland Technical College’s charges and refund policy. Any additional amounts owed to Bridgerland Technical College by the student will be due and payable immediately.
More information regarding charges and refunds available on the Tuition, Fees, Costs & Refunds page of our Student Guide: https://btech.edu/students/tuition/
Students receiving Federal Student Aid (Title IV/Pell Grant) may be subject to rules outlined in policy 732 Withdrawal and the Return of Title IV Funds.

School and Program Accreditation, Approval, or Licensure
Notice of Federal Student Financial Aid Penalties for Drug Law Violations
Schools must notify every student upon enrollment information with penalties associated with drug-related offenses. The Higher Education Act of 1965 as amended (HEA) suspends aid eligibility for students who have been convicted under federal or state law of the sale or possession of drugs, if the offense occurred during a period of enrollment for which the student was receiving federal student aid (such as grants, loans or work-study).
When submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) a student is asked: Have you been convicted for the possession or sale of illegal drugs for an offense that occurred while you were receiving federal student aid (such as grants, loans or work-study)?
- Students will answer “No” if they have never received federal student aid (FSA) or have never had a drug offense that occurred while receiving federal student aid.
- Students will answer “Yes” if they have a drug conviction for an offense that occurred while receiving federal student aid. The student should complete and submit the application and Federal Student Aid, an Office of the Department of Education, will mail the student a worksheet that will help the student determine if the conviction affects eligibility for aid. This worksheet may also be available from the Bridgerland Technical College Financial Aid Office.
- Students who are unsure of how to answer the question should call 1-800-433-3243.
Students with a qualifying drug conviction will receive a “C” code and comment code on his or her Student Aid Report (SAR) and Institutional Student Aid Report (ISIR) that is sent to the school.
Penalties, the period of ineligibility for FSA funds, for such convictions is as follows:
A student who is convicted of both possessing and selling illegal drugs, and the periods of ineligibility are different, the student will be ineligible for the longer period. The Bridgerland Technical College Financial Aid Office will provide a student who becomes ineligible for FSA funds due to a drug conviction a clear and conspicuous written notice of the loss of eligibility and methods whereby he or she can become eligible again. This notice will be provided on a case by case basis. A student may regain eligibility the day after the period of ineligibility ends or when he or she successfully completes a qualified drug rehab program that includes passing two unannounced drug tests given by such a program. Further drug convictions will make the student ineligible again. Students denied eligibility for an indefinite period can regain eligibility after completing any of the following 3 options:
- Successfully completing a rehabilitation program (as described below, which includes passing two unannounced drug tests from such a program;
- Having the conviction reversed, set aside, or removed from the student’s record so that fewer than two convictions for sale or three convictions for possession remain on the record; or
- Successfully completing two unannounced drug tests that are part of a rehab program (the student does not need to complete the rest of the program).
In such cases, the nature and dates of the remaining convictions will determine when the student regains eligibility. It is the student’s responsibility to certify to the school that he or she has successfully completed the rehabilitation program. Once a student regains eligibility the school may award Pell Grant funds for the current Payment Period in which the student is enrolled. A qualified drug rehab program must include at least two unannounced drug tests and satisfy at least one of the following requirements:
- Be qualified to receive funds directly or indirectly from a federal, state, or local government program.
- Be qualified to receive payment directly or indirectly from a federally or state-licensed insurance company.
- Be administered or recognized by a federal, state, or local government agency or court.
- Be administered or recognized by a federally or state-licensed hospital, health clinic, or medical doctor.
It is the student’s responsibility to provide documentation to the Bridgerland Technical College Financial Aid Office that the student has regained eligibility by completing the above requirements. It is also the student’s responsibility to provide documentation that confirms that the qualified drug rehabilitation program meets the standards outlined. Bridgerland Technical College will advise a student of these requirements when counseling a student who may need to enter such a program. Any question regarding student certifications for completing such programs, or the qualification of the drug rehabilitation program, must be resolved before eligibility for FSA funds will be reinstated.
|Possession of illegal drugs||Sale of illegal drugs|
|1st offense||1 year from date of conviction||2 years from date of conviction|
|2nd offense||2 years from date of conviction||Indefinite period|
|3 + offenses||Indefinite period||Indefinite period|

Disbursement for Books and Supplies
Students may receive the Federal Pell Grant for enrollment at Bridgerland Technical College in eligible certificate programs. The Pell Grant is disbursed in multiple installments throughout the year to eligible students. Each student will have an individual Pell payment schedule based on his or her enrollment and eligibility. Students may use Pell funds for the purpose of covering expenses related to education. Related expenses may include: tuition and fees; required books, tools, supplies; housing; personal expenses; transportation; childcare.
Pell Grant recipients are given the option to “pay as you go” or, arrange a Payment Plan which allows students to defer payment for tuition and fees at Registration; and other educationally related charges, such as required books and supplies at the Bridgerland Technical College Bookstore, in which the student has voluntarily authorized charges and payments to be processed by Bridgerland Technical College. The Payment Plan allows students to charge tuition, fees and other educationally related charges to the student’s accounts receivable subsidiary account.
Pell Grant installments are disbursed directly to the student in the form of a paper check. Bridgerland Technical College works with Pell Grant recipients in meeting their Payment Plan obligations by allowing students to pay account balances by the due date following receipt of Pell funds. Bridgerland Technical College reserves the right to use Pell funds to pay for outstanding tuition and fee charges prior to releasing funds to students; and to pay for other educationally related charges in which the student has voluntarily authorized charges and payments to be processed by Bridgerland Technical College. Once all eligible Pell funds for the academic year have been released to the student, the authorization to allow charges for other educationally related charges will be terminated.
The Federal Student Aid/Pell Grant Authorization for Other Educationally Related Charges form is available at the Bridgerland Technical College Financial Aid Office during the student's Pell Grant Awarding Interview. The authorization may be modified or cancelled at any time thereafter.
