Tuition & Fee Collection Policy

Any registration of a course(s) becomes the responsibility of the student.

The tuition and fees are due by the specified due date on any statement or electronic statement sent to the student. It is the responsibility of the student to adhere to this due date. Checks that are returned for insufficient funds or incorrect banking information will cause a $30 fee to be posted to the student's account.

All graduate and undergraduate evening/online courses require immediate payment at the time of registration.

Please review the policies to withdraw from the university or a class. There are specific refund policies for doing so. If the policy is not followed the student is still responsible for the charges assessed to their account.

Email notifications that the student's eBill is ready to view are sent to the student's email address, no paper bills are sent. Students are required to check their student email frequently. Student's will receive monthly emails and eBills; a phone call and a final notice before being sent to collections. In the event that a student becomes delinquent the following may happen:

  • A $50.00 late fee will be assessed the day after the due date.
  • The account may be referred to a collection agency, state intercept or the state attorney general and all additional costs associated will become the responsibility of the student.
  • A hold will be placed on the account prohibiting further registration and the ability to obtain an official transcript or other official statements.

We encourage you to contact student accounts in the event that your account becomes delinquent to discuss available options.
