Tuition and Expenses

Students are required to pay the total fees for the semester before the beginning of each semester. Thus, full payment of tuition and fees must be satisfied in August, before the beginning of the academic year, and in January, before the beginning of the second semester.

Assignment to classes and housing will only be made after prior approval from the Vice President of Finance. Any additional charges that may be incurred during the semester will be billed as they become payable.

See Online Student Billing for more information about payment.
