BILLING AND FEES ISSUES

How to enter roll number on the fee challan? 

For fee challan purposes, you must enter roll number of Nine (9) Characters.

If your original roll number is less than the Nine Characters, please add Zero(s) before your original roll number to complete the Nine Characters roll number.

For Example, you have original roll number 18-22001. This roll number has Eight (8) characters. So you need to add one zero before your roll number as 018-22001 which will be entered on the fee challan at the time of payment.

For Example, you have original roll number 18-2001. This roll number has Seven (7) characters. So you need to add two zeros before your roll number as 0018-2001 which will be entered on the fee challan at the time of payment.

For Example, you have original roll number 431240. This roll number has Six (6) characters. So you need to add three zeros before your roll number as 000431240 which will be entered on the fee challan at the time of payment.

What is the tax that is showing up on my billing statement?

According to the Income Tax Ordinance 2001 (under section 236 I), we have to collect an advance tax of 5% on your fees if they go over Rs 200,000/- per year. The fee includes tuition fee and all other charges on your account. So, your tuition, hostel occupancy, hostel mess, fines, admission fee, science fees etc. have to be combined. This is per year from July 1 until June 30 so it will include all semesters taken. (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer)

You are not taxed on securities (Hostel, General and Library) because these are refundable.

Up until now, the tax was charged to your account once you actually paid Rs. 200,000. However, this was very confusing so, in an effort to make it easier to understand and plan for, it is now being charged when the amount charged to your account has reached Rs. 200,000. This means that, you may have several instances in the course of a year when you will have tax charged. However, the total amount of tax charged will be 5% of the total amount charged to your account.

For example, if you are a BA (Hons)/BS (Hons) freshmen full time student for a year, you will be charged 230,000 for complete year (Rs. 115,000 in each semester Fall and Spring), you will go over 200,000 for the complete academic year, so tax will be charged on the total amount. In this example, that would be Rs 230,000 so the tax would be Rs 11,500. If you register for summer and take 6 credits, you would be charged Rs 41,400. Since you have already been charged the tax for the original Rs 230,000, you will not be taxed on that part again. However, you will see a tax amount for Rs 2,070 (5% of 41, 400). Once your full academic year fee passes Rs 200,000, any time an amount is charged to your account, a 5% tax will also be applied.

The GOOD NEWS: This tax can be adjusted in your parent’s/guardian’s Income Tax Return. FCCU will issue Advance Tax Certificate in this regard upon request.

Why do we pay extra for science lab courses when we already pay for the fourth credit?

The cost we charge per credit is charged to cover the cost of the having the course. This includes the salary of the instructor as well as the cost of running the electricity, air conditioning/heat, furniture and maintenance and other costs outside of the classroom that support the students in the university. Things such as water, plumbing, staff to take care of the grounds and buildings, and administrative staff to run the university.

When you take any 4 credit course, the extra time in the course actually costs extra to run. It involves more electricity, more faculty time, etc. so, you pay for the credit.

The lab fees are charged because a lab course involves additional expenses. Chemicals, equipment, lab attendants, and additional electricity are examples of that. Many universities charge extra for a BS(Hons) degree. We felt like it was fairer to charge per course because not all BS (Hons) degrees incur extra expenses and not all courses, even in the Natural and Physical Sciences involve labs.

Why does the amount I owe change?

The amount shown on your account is what you owed at the most recent “bill run.” This is done at the end of the day every day during registration and entry times and every week or so during the other times. This means that, if there has been a change in your account during the time between runs (you have added a class for example), the amount you owe will change when the bill is run. It does not change instantly. If you know that you have a charge to your account, you can pay it even before it shows up on your statement.

If you are a full time student, you should plan to pay your fees according to the amount given on the website. You do not need to wait to see what your billing statement says.

You should check on your account weekly just to be sure everything is alright with it. Proctorial fines or tax are not always posted right after they happen.

Why are our fees increased? How do you decide how much the increase will be?

There are a number of things considered when fees are increased. The most obvious is the inflation rate (cost of living). Other considerations are salary increases for faculty and staff, increased operating expenses (for example, adding the extension on E Block increases the cost of electricity and water on a daily basis), and available scholarship budget for meeting student needs. In addition, we have to budget for the long term sustainability of the university. The goal is to not have to rely on outside sources for funding except in the case of building or other special projects.

We look at our strategic plan and decide what needs to be done to improve or maintain the quality of education being offered and at the tuition costs of market competitors (we try to stay below them), then we make a proposal to the Finance Committee and finally to the Board of Governors.

We try to balance the needs of the university with the desire to keep the cost of an education here reasonable.

How are our fees used?

Staff and faculty salaries, scholarships, operating expenses such as utilities, repairs, office supplies, furniture and equipment and events. It also covers student related expenses such as the Mercy Health Center, the College Counseling Center and other student life and student services departments.

What is the financial appeals committee? What can I appeal? How do I make an appeal?

A Committee has been constituted to handle different cases to facilitate students when there are exceptional circumstances. This includes payment concerns, withdrawal due to medical or other emergency issues, billing issues or any other concern a student has that is a request for an exception to policy.

If you want to file an appeal, an application template can be obtained and dropped at the Student Dealing Window in the Admin Block (across from accounts). A weekly meeting is held to review applications under expertise of various departments and results are then communicated to students through the same window.

Please note that filing an appeal does not guarantee the request will be granted. The committee looks at the circumstances and then makes a decision based on its ability to apply the same outcome fairly in all similar cases.

PAYMENT ISSUES

Is there another way to pay besides the HBL branch on campus? If I pay at another branch, how do I get credit for my fees?

You can pay for your fees at any HBL branch in Pakistan. If you pay off campus, you will need to either bring your paid challan to the accounts office or email a picture or scanned copy of it to fccfeechallans@fccollege.edu.pk. This is because HBL sends a list of payments made to us but there is nothing on the list telling us who made the payments. Your fee challan has your roll number on it. That allows us to make sure that your payment is credited to your account.

The accounts office is currently working with HBL to come up with some easier options such as ATM and online payment. We are hoping to have that active by the Fall 2018 semester.

How can I find out how much I owe without going to the accounts office window?

All of the information you need is on your EMPOWER account.

  1. After logging into your online account, look for the tab at the top that says Financials.
  2. Click on that tab and then, click on ’Billing Detail Summary’.
  3. The link will show your ‘Total Outstanding Obligation’.

What do I do if I have a hold on my account?

The first step is to find out why you have a hold. There are several types. If it is a Business hold, that can be checked at either of the student dealing windows. One is in the accounts office and the other is directly across the hall. If the hold is for a different reason, you will need to see that office to have it removed.
