Paper invoices are not mailed to the student's parent/guardian. New students must activate their computer accounts by going to and clicking on the first-time user button.

Failure to pay for classes does not withdraw you. Not attending classes or notifying your high school that you wish to drop classes does not withdraw you from classes. You are responsible for all fees unless you process a drop form through the Collegiate Connection office during the refund period.
