​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Payment Policy and Plans​​​​

Payment Policy

Payment is expected in full one week prior to the start of the session, therefore, an itemized statement of charges is available in Workday shortly after registration. Students may elect to sign up for a Payment Plan (available to all students) to make monthly payments​​.

Full payment may be required by the first day of classes for students who register for courses near the start of the session. Financial obligations to the University must be handled promptly. Students facing a financial problem should contact the Office of Financial Aid or Student Accounts before payment is due. Continued enrollment in a succeeding session and the issuance of a diploma cannot be permitted until all financial obligations to the University have been satisfied.​​

Penalties for past-due balance

  • ​Students who have not fully paid their fees, or have not enrolled in an official payment plan, or have failed to make payments by the due date which is one week before the session starts, are at risk of facing penalties. These penalties may include losing their class registration, on-campus housing, and meal plans, denied future classes, grade reports, and/or a diploma.​ If you are receiving Financial aid, Tuition remissions, or Tuition waivers, you will be granted an extension during the drop period.​
  • Students who are dropped for non-payment may receive a withdrawn grade on their official transcript and will be responsible for the tuition and fees based on their course’s refund schedule at the time of the drop​
