The postsecondary institution may charge a Dual Enrollment recipient a fine for a lost or damaged book which was loaned to the student, up to $75 or the cost of the book minus the book allowance, whichever is less.

If the high school chose to enroll in courses not covered by Dual Enrollment funding, the postsecondary institution may change the student for tuition, books and fees as other students are charged.
