Payment Plans

Installment payment plans require that tuition, course/class fees, and mandatory campus fees are paid with an initial down payment, and three installments. The down payment consists of the mandatory campus fees, and is due no later than August 14th, 2017. The first installment, due September 14th, 2017 consists of 1/3 of your total tuition fees and a $25 non-refundable installment payment plan fee. The remaining two installments consist of 1/3 of your total tuition fees, due by October 14th and November 14th. The last day to sign up for a payment plan for Fall 2017 term is October 13th, 2017.

You cannot sign up for an installment payment plan until after you have registered for classes. If you register for additional classes after signing up for an installment payment plan (changing from part-time to full-time for example), your remaining installment amounts will automatically adjust, and spread the additional fees equally across however many remaining installments are left to pay. Please pay close attention to the payment amounts and due-dates to avoid late fees and having a hold on your account which would prevent any future registrations.

Installment Payment Plans for Extended Learning Students

Installment payment plans are available for Extended Learning students.  Installment due dates are the same as posted above.  The down payment consists of mandatory fees, with the remaining three installments consisting of a combination of tuition, course, and class fees.  (Extended Learning tuition and fees vary, please see Extended Learning Fees for details).

Important Information for Installment Payment Plans

Due dates for installments are fixed, and do not adjust according to your registration date, nor the date you sign up for the installment payment plan. If you register late, and sign up for a payment plan after September 14th, for example, the down-payment and first installment will be due immediately, with the remaining two installments due October 14th and November 14thIn that scenario, failture to pay the down payment and first installment immediately may result in having all of your classes dropped.

  • Late payments may incur late fees
  • Any changes to your account after you sign-up for a payment plan will update your payment amounts automatically.  You are responsible to pay the new amounts in full by each due-date.
  • Missed payments (or rejected checks) may result in an inability to use an installment payment plan for future terms, late fees, having all of your classes dropped, and a hold on your account.  If you lose your classes, you may not be able to get back into them due to full classes and wait-lists.
  • Cancellation of your enrollment may result in pro-rated fees charged to your account.
  • Failure to pay may result in additional collection costs, including those associated with referral to a third-party collection agency.
