The tuition fee installment contract is intended to assist non-financial aid students and to defer the tuition fee for all eligible students who apply. The payment plan is available for regular matriculated students and Open University students. Students enrolled in Continuing Education and any of their special programs, ALP programs, and Summer Self Support programs, are not eligible for the university payment plan. There is a $30 non-refundable installment contract fee per semester and a new contract must be completed each semester. The campus fees are due by the fee payment deadline and the tuition is split into three (3) payments. The $30 Installment Plan service fee and the $187.50 Health service fee are applied to the first payment. Once you enroll for the installment plan, you can view the due dates and amounts in your student center. The first payment must be made by the deadline to secure the classes. If the second and third installment are not paid by the due date then a $20 late fee will be assessed per each late installment.

Student Financial Services (SFS) will defer payment for sponsored students and will bill an external agency for registration fees, non-resident tuition, and course fees. SFS has the right to refuse an authorization to bill an agency or deferment of fee payment for a student pending receipt of payment from a third party sponsor, due to previous refusal to pay, extended collection efforts, or other reasons.

Sponsored students must submit an authorization to bill, letter of sponsorship, purchase order, etc. to Student Financial Services by the registration fee payment deadline for each quarter. Failure to submit the authorization by the fee payment deadline may result in a disenrollment for non-payment. If a late fee is added, it cannot be billed to the agency, but must be paid by the student.

If you are attending under a special fee waiver program and have completed all application and eligibility requirements as of the fee payment deadline date, please pay according to the charges posted in the student account. All waivers will be posted to your account before the fee payment deadline and as the information is received.
