Description: Guidelines for Determining Chargeback Eligibility


A student attending Atlantic Cape Community College (with Atlantic Cape serving as an out-of-county community college) on a chargeback basis because his/her local county college does not offer a particular program of study shall be permitted to register for and attend, on a chargeback basis, all course work necessary to satisfy the requirements of such a program of study. This requirement shall apply whether or not any portion of that course work is offered at the student's local community college.

For the purpose of chargeback, Comprehensive Support Centers for Learning Disabled Students, New Jersey Centers for Collegiate Deaf Education and College Resource Centers for Visually Impaired Students, shall be considered eligible programs of study. Out-of-county students, who meet the eligibility requirements and are accepted into direct service programs in a Center located at a community college, shall be permitted to register for and attend, on a chargeback basis, all course work necessary to satisfy the requirements of a program of study approved by the Director of the Center in which the student is enrolled.

Students required to enroll in a comprehensive remedial program, must take that full sequence of remediation in the home county with the exception of students enrolled in Comprehensive Support Centers for Learning Disabled Students, New Jersey Centers for Collegiate Deaf Education or College Resource Centers For Visually Impaired Students. Students enrolled in the programs of these Centers may complete required comprehensive remedial programs at the Centers. To determine the remediation needs of chargeback students, each institution shall test/assess all out-of-county incoming students using the same instruments the institution uses for assessing its in-county students. Based upon the results of such test assessments, the institution shall determine whether to permit the student to enroll/matriculate in an academic program and shall also determine any skill areas in which the student requires remediation. Students requiring remediation in the three areas of writing, reading and basic mathematics will not be eligible for chargeback.

Students not required to enroll in a comprehensive remedial program as defined in the preceding paragraph above may take such remediation as part of the program of study at Atlantic Cape Community College on a chargeback basis.

A student shall be eligible to attend Atlantic Cape Community College on a chargeback basis if the student's local community college cannot admit the student into a particular course or program of study desired by the student due to lack of available space in the course or program of study, which continues or will continue over one year from the initial date of attempted admission.
