Refund Updates

As a result of the shift from in-person classes and residency to remote curriculum delivery on March 30th, we are providing students with a credit for the unused portion of their room, meal plan, and related sales tax fees. This credit will be applied to student accounts today, May 14, and is calculated based on the date when the final decision was determined to move to remote learning (40% of the semester remaining).

The calculation for the unused portion of  a student’s spring 2020 room, meal plan, and related sales tax, requires two calculations, which are as follows:

Student Contribution Calculation

(Student Payments + Student/Parent loans)

Divided by

(Tuition +Room + Meal plan and related sales tax)


Student Contribution

(Limited to 100%)

Total Credit Calculation

40% of (Room + Meal Plan and related Sales Tax)

Multiplied by

Student Contribution (above)


Total credit

  • If a student has a balance due as of May 14, the credits will help resolve the balance due.   
  • If a student wishes to have the credit applied toward their balance for summer 2020, they must contact the Crusader Success Hub by sending an email to billing@bac.edu from their BAC email.
  • Upon satisfaction of a student’s outstanding account balance, the College will issue a check or direct deposit for the surplus amount. To expedite payment, please update banking information at the following secure link: https://heartland.ecsi.net/. As a reminder, please do not communicate banking information via email or text.

How to Stop the Spread of Germs

Avoid close contact.
-Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.

Stay in when you are sick.
-If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. This will help prevent spreading your illness to others.

Cover your mouth and nose.
-Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick. Serious respiratory illnesses are spread by cough, sneezing, or unclean hands.

Clean your hands.
-Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
-Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.

Practice other good health habits.
-Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
