Payment Plan

If a student is unable to pay all of the fees at registration time, a payment plan can be arranged in the cashier’s office. This plan allows students to pay one-fourth of all fees for the term, plus a $20 one-time (nonrefundable) fee, by the payment due date. If the first payment is not received by the payment due date, the students classes will be subject to cancellation.
Three additional monthly payments complete the payment plan. If the monthly payments are not paid on the due date, an additional $25 will be charged for each late payment.

Summer Term Payment Plan

The summer term payment plan allows students to pay their summer term tuition and fees in three payments.
The first third of all fees for the term plus a $20 one-time (nonrefundable) fee must be paid by the payment due date. If the first payment is not received by the initial payment date, the student’s classes will be subject to cancellation. Two additional payments complete the payment plan. If the monthly payments are not paid by the due dates, an additional $25 will be charged for each late payment.
