Application of Payments

PAYMENT PROCEDURE

The registration and matriculation fee of six hundred dollars ($600.00) is due at registration.  The cost for tuition and room is divided into three (3) installments for those who wish to pay by installments.  Payments for the Fall Semester are due October 1, November 1, and December 1. Subsequent payments for the Spring Semester are due February 1, March 1, and April 1.  A twenty-five dollar ($25.00) late fee will be assessed if payment is not received by the 10th of the month.  A fifteen-dollar ($15.00) fee will be charged for any check returned unpaid by the bank.

 

Students with past due accounts will be required to fulfill a payment plan instituted by the Finance Office as detailed in the Student Handbook.  Students will not be given their final grades for the semester if their account has an outstanding balance.  Students will not be permitted to re-enroll for the following semester until their account balance is paid in full.

 

1. Method of Payment - Students may pay outstanding balances via cash, check, money order, or cashier’s check.  All payments must be issued in U.S. funds.

2. Full-Payment Discount - Students who pay their account in full at registration will receive a five percent (5%) discount on the tuition portion of their bill.  This will not apply to students on the LOCO Scholarship program.
