2020-2021 Catalog Fall Update

Payment of Tuition and Fees/Past-Due Account Balance Fee

Tuition is due the 20th of the month prior to the month in which the course begins. All fees are due at the time they are incurred. Students are responsible for purchasing course materials and textbooks separately. If however, any part of the tuition and fees remain unpaid by the 30th day of the course, the student will be assessed a carrying fee on the unpaid balance. For more information, please visit Tuition, Fees and Charges.
