Any student who is not official by these dates is at risk of having his or her schedule dropped.

What payment plans are available?

Once you have charges on your account, you can enroll in a payment plan. All payment plans have a $60 enrollment fee per semester that is due when signing up for the plan. Monthly payments will automatically draft on the due dates. Any past due amounts are subject to a $40 late payment fee. Any returned payments are subject to a $30 returned payment fee.

All plans are set up for automatic monthly payments, drafting on the 25th of each month.
