Payment Options

Obligation for Payment

You are obligated to pay tuition by the time it is due. If you fail to make a payment to the college when it is due, you may be prohibited from classes or examinations - or your diploma, certificate or transcript may be withheld. Outstanding accounts will be sent to collections.

You have two options to pay your tuition.

1. Full Payment When You Register

The Business Office accepts sponsor tuition assistance, cash, money orders, personal checks and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express). If your company wants to be billed directly, it is your responsibility to arrange this through the Business Office.

Scholarships, grants and loans are available for undergraduate students. Contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.

For information on VA benefits, active duty, military or veteran status, you should contact the Registration and Records Office. You may expect an educational allowance based on courses that are legitimate parts of degree programs approved for veterans. You must immediately notify the Registration and Records Office and Financial Aid Office upon any change in your course load.

2. Enrolling in a Deferred Payment Plan

The college offers a deferred payment plan for students who are unable to pay their tuition balance in full at registration. The deferred payment plan allows you to pay your tuition in three installments for semester-long courses: one-third at registration, one-third on or before the end of the fourth week of classes, and one-third on or before the end of the eighth week. If you are taking eight-week classes, you may also pay your tuition in three installments: one-third at registration, one-third on or before the second week of classes, and one-third on or before the sixth week of classes. The deferred payment plan costs $30, which is due with the first installment.

Financial Aid Recipients

If you receive financial aid, you must pay at least one-third of the remaining balance at registration.

Employer-sponsored Students

If you are sponsored by your employer, you must include authorization forms with your registration, and the college will bill the employer directly.

If you are reimbursed directly from your employer, then you must pay your tuition in full or enroll in a deferred payment plan. The cost of the deferred payment plan is $30.
