Payment Options/Plans

You can pay your bill in full or you can set up a payment plan to pay your bill in smaller increments throughout the semester.

There are two payment plan options:

Monthly Payments

Payments are due once a month. You choose whether to pay on the 1st or 15th of each month.

Twice-a-month Payments

Payments are due twice a month on the 1st and 15th of each month.

Payment plans set up on or before the tuition due date will include four months of payments. Payment plans set up after the due date are subject to a shorter period of payments. Summer semester may vary.

Payment plans require a non-refundable $35 enrollment fee and a 10% down payment of your total balance at the time of set-up.

Late payments will be charged a one-time $10 late fee. Returned electronic check payments will be charged a $15 returned check fee.
