Tuition Fees and Student Accounts

2020-2021 Catalog Year

Account & Fee Payment

Tuition & Fees payment deadline dates are published in the Academic Calendar. Any student account balance may be paid online via the Bill & Payment Center, in-person at the Cashier's Office, or by mail. Payments will not be accepted for amounts greater than what is owed on the account. Payment deadlines are strictly enforced and cannot be extended beyond the published date. 

The Office of the Bursar reserves the right to refuse any payment that is deemed to be intentionally disruptive towards day to day operations. 

Per University Regulation, students with delinquent account balances shall not be permitted to register and shall have a hold placed on their records restricting the release of transcripts, awarding of diplomas and access to other resources and services of the University. This hold shall continue in force until the delinquent debt is paid-in-full.   

The University reserves the right to assign any delinquent accounts to an outside agency for collection. When an account has been assigned, the collection agency fee will be added to the University charges for collection at the current contract rate not to exceed 33 1/3%.
