Tuition Payment Plan

How does it work?

The Tuition payment plan option allows students to pay their quarterly tuition in three installments. The amount of each installment is determined by the student and should be calculated based on the total tuition balance that remains outstanding. The total of the three installments should equal the total tuition the student account has outstanding.

A $10 fee is assessed at the time of enrollment. All installments must be received prior to the posted due dates to avoid administrative holds and or late fees.

Who is eligible?

The Tuition Payment Plan is an option available to all students who opt to enroll and do so on/before the posted enrollment deadline for the quarter in question. Please be advised that late enrollments cannot be accepted.
