Payment and Refunds of Tuition and Fees

Tuition and Fees Payment Option

Each student is to select one of the following alternatives for the payment of tuition and fees during the fall and spring semesters:

  1. Full payment of tuition and fees in advance of the beginning of the semester; or
  2. One-fourth payment of tuition and fees in advance of the beginning of a fall or spring semester and separate, one-quarter payments due on assigned dates during the course of the semester. An incidental fee of $15.00 payable at the same time of registration will be charged if this payment option is selected (subject to change).

Delinquent Payment Penalty (Subject to Change)

As provided by law, any student who fails to make full payment of tuition and all fees by the due date may be prohibited from registering for classes until full payment is made. In addition, the following charges apply:

  • A charge of $15.00 for delinquent payment. Any student who does not make installment payments by the assigned due dates will be charged a delinquent fee of $15.00 for each payment that is delinquent.
  • The student will not receive course credit if full payment is not made prior to the end of the semester.

Refunds for Classes Dropped

Charges for tuition and fees are based on the total semester credit hours for which the student is registered as of the twelfth class day during the fall and spring semesters and the total semester credit hours for which the student is registered as of the fourth class day during each summer term. Refunds will not be made for any class dropped after the twelfth class day during the fall and spring semesters or after the fourth class day during each summer term. Full refunds will be given for classes dropped prior to these days provided the student remains enrolled in other semester credit hours.

Refunds for Withdrawal

Withdrawal from the University means officially dropping all classes through forms filed with the Office of Student Life. Refunds are pro-rated based on the day on which the student withdraws in relation to the Academic Calendar.
