Tuition Assistance Programs
Please be aware that as schools and colleges issue refunds for room and board, and in some cases, tuition, those funds are to be returned to the Poarch Band of Creek Indians Education Department. If a check is issued in your name, please sign the check and mail it to the attention of the Poarch Creek Indians Education Department, 5811 Jack Springs Road, Atmore, Alabama 36502. These funds will be credited back to your account for future use. Failure to return these funds to the Tribe can result in prosecution and forfeiture of future tuition payments.
