Tuition, Fees & Payments

Tuition and fees are due before classes begin. IF FULL PAYMENT AND/OR ARRANGEMENT (FINANCIAL AID OR INSTALLMENT PLAN) HAS NOT BEEN MADE BY THE CORRESPONDING DEADLINE DATE, YOU MAY BE DROPPED FROM YOUR CLASSES.  Installment plans are only available for the Spring and Fall terms. If you register in courses after the final drop date (ie – late starting classes, intersession, etc.), payment is due by 5:00pm the day of your registration.  Non-payment will result in a hold being placed on your account and could result in a late fee being assessed.
