Payment of Fees

Full-time, academic-year tuition is billed each semester as one-half of the total annual amount and is due in August and January, 10 days before each semester starts. Part-time, academic-year tuition is billed in full for each semester and due in August and January, 10 days before each semester starts. Academic-year fees are billed in full at the start of the first semester and are due 10 days before the semester starts. Summer term tuition, fees and expenses are billed in April and payable by June 1 each summer.

For many academic-year students with sufficient financial need, the actual amount of financial aid is more than the fees payable. The difference will be refunded to the student, subject to holdback for rental housing commitments or outstanding debt. Students who prefer to pay educational expenses in installments may want to consider one of the deferred payment plans offered by commercial lending organizations. Information about such plans is available from the Office of Financial Aid. The university accepts installment payments of semester charges only by means of one of these plans.

Any balance remaining on the student bill, after credit for financial aid, must be paid in full by the due date; the University accepts monthly payment only by means of the plans mentioned above. No student who has any past due balance on his or her account will be permitted to register for classes or obtain a transcript of grades.
