Tuition and Fees are due by the 1st day of the semester. Students who have not paid tuition and fees in full and have not completed financial aid processing by the time the semester begins may attend classes provided that they have enrolled in an online payment plan. If a student has not made payment in full or enrolled in the online payment plan offered by the University, he/she is at risk of being dropped from the semester’s classes.
Please note: Student accounts not satisfied by the due date, are subject to account holds, late fees, and voiding of all current registration.
