Student Accounts


Deadlines and Late Fees


TUITION:  Tuition is charged for all credit bearing courses. The rate of tuition is based upon the number of registered credits a student has, the student type (undergraduate or graduate), and his/her residency status.

Each student is billed only for those courses for which they have actually registered at the time the bill is created. If a student is on a wait-list for a course, these credits are not included in their credit total and they will not be billed for them at this time. It is the student's responsibility to follow up with the appropriate new payment when his/her registration becomes finalized and wait-listed classes are actual registered classes.

An updated semester bill will be available on the student's account. Charges for courses added after the beginning of the semester are due immediately upon registration. To avoid late penalties, students must log on to their individual account to confirm and accept their financial responsibility for the semester bill and to make any necessary payments or payment arrangements.
