Late Payment Fee

If a student’s balance is not paid in full by the due date, a late fee of $50.00 may be assessed.

Bursar Hold

A Bursar Hold may be placed on the account of a student who owes a past due balance. The hold will prevent the student from registering for the next term, receiving transcripts, viewing grades, or receiving a diploma. Once a past due balance has been paid in full, the hold will be removed.

Returned Checks

Check and ACH payments are periodically returned by the bank for a variety of reasons.  When this occurs, the payee must repay the debt along with a penalty, and the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine must take steps to minimize the risk of repeated returned payments.

There will be a $25.00 fee assessed for any returned check.  A bursar hold will be placed onto the student account until the returned check and returned check fee have been paid by the designated due date.

Tuition Refund Policy

A student who cancels, withdraws for personal or medical reasons, is suspended, or is dismissed will receive a refund of tuition charged for the term based on the following schedule:

*Medical documentation may be submitted for consideration.

**Calculation will be based on the first date of enrollment for the term.

Withdrawal Percentage Refunded

During first week of term — 100%

During second week of term — 75%

During third week of term — 50%

After third week of term — 0%

Veterans Tuition Refund Policy

Students receiving Veterans Education Benefits who fail to complete the program, withdraw or
are dismissed for any reason prior to the completion of the program, will be charged for tuition,
fees and other charges on a pro rata basis. Charges for the completed portion of the program shall
not exceed the approximate pro rata portion of the total charges for tuition, fees and other
charges for the full length of the program.


Direct Depost Form

Refunds and/or reimbursements are issued through an Electronic Funds Transfer (Direct Deposit) to the student’s designated bank account.  An EFT is the fast way for you to receive a refund and/or reimbursement.

To sign up, complete the direct deposit form and submit it to the Bursar’s office.  Any time you make changes to your bank or account information, an updated form will need to be completed.  Please note “updated bank account” on the form.


Please share the 1098-T information and your payment records with your tax advisor to determine your eligibility for education tax credits.  Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine does not provide tax service.

IRS regulations state that each student who wishes to receive their 1098-T electronically must also provide his/her consent electronically.  To do so, go to and follow the instructions below.

  • Go to
  • Enter the site ID:  11217
  • User Name:  ACOM Student ID
  • Password:  Last 4 digits of SSN

For security reasons, you will be prompted to change your password.  Enter your old password (last 4 digits of SSN) and then enter a new password.  The new password must be 7 characters and contain at least one numeric character.

Once you have entered a new password,  you will be presented with the online consent form.  Read the online consent form for the requirements and specifications.  If you agree, click on “Consent.”  Once you consent, you will NOT be mailed a 1098-T and must return to the site after January 31 to view/print a copy of your Form 1098-T.  Your consent will apply to the current and subsequent years.  If you completed the registration in the past, you will not need to re-register.
