Will I pay interest for participating in a payment plan? 

You will pay a one-time enrollment fee at the time you enter into a plan agreements. The remainder owed to Vernon College will be divided into installment payments. 

What are the fees for using a payment plan? 

There is a nonrefundable enrollment fee for participating in a payment plan. Other fees that may be applicable are payments that are returned due to insufficient funds, declined payments, or a payment method change fee. 

When I choose my plan, where does the “amount you owe” come from? 

The amount you owe is the amount provided from your student record with the college. If you have added or dropped a class recently, this would affect the balance due. Check with your college’s business office if you feel the balance due on your student record is not correct.  

Can I adjust the amount I owe when choosing a payment plan? 

No. If you wish to pay an amount other than what is owed on your student account, you would need to contact the Cashier’s Office directly at (940) 696-8752 ext. 2303 or 3305. 

When your college allows you to defer payments, they have guidelines that you must meet in order to pay your account balance in full. Ex: 50% prior to the first day of class, 75% by mid semester, etc. 

How do I accept the Agreements associated with a payment plan? 

You must scroll down to the bottom of the agreements in order to accept them and proceed to the next step. You can download the Agreements if you choose to do so by selecting “Download” in the top of the agreement documents. Agreements can also be viewed by accessing your user profile in our College Green payment plan website. 

Why do I have to create a username and password? 

This creates a user profile with College Green and allows you to access your account at your convenience without going through your college student portal. We recommend you bookmark our web address during enrollment so you can use our secure login process to access your account. 

What happens if my card declines? 

Your payment will not be processed. The card that is used for making payments must have the same billing information that you entered into our online payment system. This includes the billing zip code. Other reasons for declines include card information on file that occurs due to a new expiration date or new security code(CVV).  

If the declined payment is for a regularly scheduled payment, we will attempt to collect the payment again in 5 business days.  

If the decline is due to insufficient funds for the enrollment fee, you will need to choose a different credit/debit card with sufficient funds available on your card or select a card with a higher daily limit. 

If the decline is due to an invalid expiration date or CVV code, you will need to update your profile with the new card information. 

What happens if I drop or add a class? 

This will affect the amount owed to your college. Other events that can change the amount you owe include dorm and meal plan charges. The balance due in your student record is updated by your college. Should you have any questions regarding the amount owed or your charges, you should contact your college directly. If the amount you owe changes after you have enrolled in a payment plan, you would need to access your College Green payment plan and accept the new payment amount and updated disclosures. We will continue to collect the prior agreed upon payment schedule until you have accepted the revised payment amount. 

Why do I have to input my email address? 

You can choose the email address that you prefer to receive communications from us. We will use this for payment confirmations and payment reminder notifications. We will not use your email address for marketing or solicitation purposes. 

Will I receive a receipt for the payment? 

Yes, you will receive an email confirmation as soon as your payment has been processed. Your receipt will include a link that you should save to your favorites. This will allow you to manage your payment plan without going through your student portal with the college. 

How long will it take for my payment to post to my student account with my college? 

Your payment will be applied to your student account on the day of the scheduled payment. If your payment is declined by your Credit Card Company or Financial Institution at a later time, your balance will be revised. 

How do I cancel a payment plan if I no longer need it? 

You should contact the Business Office at Vernon College to cancel your payment plan agreement and cease future payments.

1970 marked the beginning of Vernon College. Throughout this decade the College continued to grow and more students enrolled in both on- and off-campus courses. On January 20, 1970, a majority of the citizens of Wilbarger County voted to create the Wilbarger County Junior College District. Following that decision, Vernon Regional Junior College was established and on April 9, 1970, the newly elected Board of Trustees appointed Dr. David L. Norton as the College’s first president. Campus construction began in May 1971, and included an Academic Science Center, Administration-Fine Arts Center, Applied Arts Center, Library, and Student Center. The following year, on September 5, 1972, classes met for the first time on the Vernon campus with a total of 608 students. On August 1, 1974, Dr. Jim M. Williams became the College’s second president. In the fall semester of that year, combined on- and off-campus enrollment exceeded 800 students. During the 1975-76 academic year, the College expanded its services to include a learning center on Sheppard Air Force Base. During this year, enrollment in credit courses, both on- and off-campus, rose to a level of 1,199. The scope of the Vocational Nursing Program was enlarged during the 1976-77 academic year with the assumption of the Bethania School of Vocational Nursing in Wichita Falls. In August 1976 the Physical Education Center was dedicated in honor of Dr. and Mrs. Thomas A. King longtime benefactors of Vernon College. Growth and changes continued during the 1980s. In August 1980 a Student Residence Center, designed to house 128 students, opened for occupancy. Further expansion of program offerings in the Wichita Falls area was accomplished through absorption of an existing proprietary school that was renamed the Vernon College Technical Center and the integration of the nursing program from the Wichita Falls Independent School District. On March 22, 1982, Dr. Joe Mills took over the leadership of the College as the third president. That fall, the College fielded its first intercollegiate rodeo team. During 1983-84, the Department of Cosmetology and the Career Development Center (previously known as the North Texas Skills Center) were established in Wichita Falls. On the Vernon campus, the Chaparral Center was completed, and the Pease River farm purchased through a state land trade. The following academic year, 1984-85, Vernon College reached a record credit enrollment of 1,863 and a record continuing education enrollment of 7,056 registrations. A Vocational Nursing Program opened in Seymour, and the Board of Trustees established a college foundation and approved an agreement to allow construction of the Red River Valley Museum on the Vernon campus. In February 1987 the College played its first intercollegiate baseball game on the Vernon campus. During May of that year, the new Natatorium was opened in the King Physical Education Center. A newly constructed Athletic Dormitory opened to house 28 athletes in August 1988. In October, Trustees voted to add women’s volleyball as a varsity sport, effective with the fall 1989 semester. In May 1989 Vernon College moved all Wichita Falls programs to one centralized location—Century City Center. Since the College opened its doors 38 years ago, many individuals, corporations, foundations, and organizations have made an investment in our students through the creation of endowed and annual scholarships. As of this year, more than 100 scholarship funds are available to help students pursue their educational dreams.VERNON COLLEGE PHILOSOPHY: Vernon College is a constantly evolving institution, dedicated primarily to effective teaching and regional enhancement.
