Tuition and Fee Payment

Tuition and Fees

Tuition and fees must be paid in full at the beginning of each semester. Please visit Tuition and Fees to verify the deadlines.

The Installment Payment Plan allows students to pay tuition and fees in installments.  The first payment is due at the time the student signs the Payment Plan promissory note.  The remaining balance due is to be paid in installments throughout the semester. Please visit Installment Payment Plan for further information.
