  • Second baccalaureate, returning, and graduate students are not required to pay this fee.

Step 2: Follow the instructions on how to make the payment on the CashNet window. A receipt will be e-mailed to you once the transaction is completed. If you press cancel, the acceptance of admission will not be finalized.
