    Payment & Refund Policies

     

    Registration is not valid until arrangements have been made to pay tuition and fees. Failure to pay account balances or to arrange for financial aid in a timely manner will invalidate a student’s course registration. In addition, a student will not be able to take final exams, receive grade reports, or receive official transcripts until all account balances have been cleared. For international students, failure to pay in a timely manner may also result in termination of the student’s SEVIS record.

    Although all fees are non-refundable, tuition may be refunded according to the schedule below.
