Freshman who participate in new student registration and returning students will receive the fall semester bill electronically in mid-July; payment is due the first week of August. Spring semester bills are published in December and payment is due the first week of January.

Monthly Payment Plan

The University offers a payment plan for the fall and spring semesters. To participate, students must enroll in the payment plan through their account during the designated enrollment dates. The payment plan allows for the semester charges of tuition, fees, on-campus room and university meals to be divided into manageable installments. The payment plan is available for a nominal fee.

Pre-Payment of Tuition

Families may purchase future semesters of tuition at the current tuition rate by making full payment in advance. In paying a lump sum prior to the beginning of the fall semester, families lock in the current year tuition rate for the pre-paid semesters. Specific details are available from the Office of Student Accounts.
