For the 2016-2017 academic year, we will not charge a separate registration or a student fee. The tuition rate will include those separate fees.


Payment Schedule

Tuition and fees are due in full during the registration period before the start of each semester, unless prior arrangements have been made with the Business Office. For your convenience, payment plans are available for a modest fee. These allow you to spread the cost of your education throughout the semester or defer it while awaiting financial aid.

Our full-time Financial Aid Office can provide you with information concerning the various student aid programs available and eligibility requirements.
