  • Payment & Refund Policies

    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. No refunds will be made after the third week of the fall and spring semesters, after the third class meeting of summer courses, or after the start of the 2nd day of classes for one-week mini-terms.

    Fall & Spring Semesters
    During 1st week of the semester 90% of tuition
    During 2nd week of the semester 75% of tuition
    During 3rd week of the semester 50% of tuition
