Payment

All university bills are due to be paid on time. If the payment is not received by the designated due date, you may be assessed a late fee as well as have a financial hold placed on your record.  This hold will restrict you from scheduling/registering for future classes, viewing grades, requesting transcripts, and receiving your diploma.

The administrative hold is only removed after the outstanding balance is paid in full. Should a bill remain outstanding for an extended period of time, the account will be referred to an outside collection agency and an additional collection fee will be added to the balance due. The student will be responsible for paying this additional fee. The account will also be reported to a national credit bureau.

NOTE: Students are responsible for payment of tuition to the University, even though they may be eligible for their employer's tuition reimbursement plan. Students are responsible for making arrangements with their employers for reimbursement.
