Frequently Asked Questions?
Electronic Registration Financial Agreement
Prior to registering in Self-Service for the first time, students are required to accept the Registration Financial Agreement: I understand and agree that when I register for any class at DOANE UNIVERSITY or receive any service from DOANE UNIVERSITY I accept full responsibility to pay all tuition, fees and other associated costs assessed as a result of my registration and/or receipt of services. I further understand and agree that my registration and acceptance of these terms constitutes a promissory note agreement (i.e., a financial obligation in the form of an educational loan as defined by the U.S. Bankruptcy Code at 11 U.S.C. §523(a)(8)) in which DOANE UNIVERSITY is providing me educational services, in the event of any deferral of some or all of my payment obligation for those services, and I promise to pay for all assessed tuition, fees and other associated costs by the published or assigned due date.)
I'm having trouble logging into the Register-Me page?
Different web browsers have different issues. If you can't get logged in try putting the word 'crete/' in front of your log-in name, for example crete/john.doe.
What is a promissory note?
A promissory note is your promise to pay your tuition bill. Doane, unlike other schools, requires no tuition payment prior to the term starting, therefore we need you to agree that you plan to pay us.
Why can't I register over the phone? Why can't I email my registration to my advisor?
We need students to understand the registration requirements each term with an electronic submit button. Attending Doane creates a financial obligation. We feel it is important that students understand and acknowledge the financial responsibilities associated with attendance.
I'm receiving Financial Aid, do I have to do this?
Financial aid monies are not put on students accounts until after the term starts. The previous term's grades need to be verified and each student reviewed to ensure good academic standing and that financial aid eligibility is being maintained. Therefore you are starting courses each term without making a payment and need to agree to pay.
Will I have to agree to this each term?
No, once you have agreed to the Registration Financial Agreement before your first term, you will not need to do it again. However, each term you will owe Doane a different amount determined by the courses you register for. Each term's registration is considered to be a separate commitment or "purchase" for which a student must accept responsibility which is why you are required to submit your registration online.
