Payment Policy

Upon notification of acceptance, each full-time student must pay a general deposit of $250, which:

  • holds a student's place at the University
  • assures room selection
  • allows a student to register for classes

The deposit is refundable through May 1 for the fall semester and October 1 for the spring semester. Payment of all charges is due by August 1 for the fall semester; December 31 for the spring semester.

All accounts not paid when due will be assessed a $75 late fee charge per semester, in addition to a 1.5% monthly finance charge on the outstanding balance. Late fees do not apply to those who choose the Payment Plan. If your account is dropped from the Payment Plan, a finance charge of 1.5% monthly will be charged.

Current or former students with any past due or prior balance will not be permitted to register for subsequent semesters or obtain a transcript or diploma. Any account balance that has been paid using a personal check will have a wait time of two weeks before an account will be cleared for registration or for a transcript or diploma.
