Payment policy

  • All payment arrangements are due by the first day of class.
  • Students using financial aid must complete their financial aid paperwork in person prior to class start date. Financial aid/scholarship recipients may use the deferred payment plan after balance owed has been calculated using all available awards. Financial aid and scholarship students will be allowed to register only if they’ve made financial aid arrangements with the Student Financial Services department prior to each registration period.
  • Chapter 33 Post-9/11 G.I. Bill, VA benefits are not considered financial aid for purposes of calculating the balance due to the institution.
  • Students may pay registration costs by check, money order, or online using SelfService.
  • All students with accounts in good standing may choose a deferred payment plan. This plan requires a 40% down payment of the tuition balance at the time of registration. Students choosing this option will be required to sign a promissory note for the remaining balance. Payment of balance owed will be due in two equal installments, with dates established at time of registration.
  • Students using VA benefits are welcome to participate in the deferred payment plan under above stated conditions.
