When students drop or withdraw from classes, only certain credit for the total tuition commitment can be granted based on the above credit adjustment schedule. A credit adjustment is not necessarily a refund. If the credit is greater than the amount due, the difference is refunded to the student. If the credit is less than the amount due, the difference must be paid by the student.

Students whose tuition was paid all or in part from financial aid funds will have all or a portion of the refund restored to the aid program; therefore, students may not be eligible for a cash refund. A student’s account that has a credit balance from financial aid/loans is automatically refunded.

Payment Plan FAQ's

Our payment policies and schedules are posted in the Academic Planning Guides and Catalogs, so you may make informed decisions about your education,  payment plans and your options. Any charges unpaid by the statement due date will result in a hold on your account, a hold on your transcript requests and will prevent registration activity. Late fees in the amount of 5%, up to $75 will be assessed on the past due balance. The deferred payment plan is denied to students whose accounts have in the past been referred to a collection agency because of the student’s failure to pay the university.

Your payment amounts can be found on MY Portal. If you are eligible for financial aid, but have not accepted your award  prior to the billing due date, you are required to pay the minimum advance payment by the due date.

Payment may be made through the direct crediting of a financial aid award to the student’s account, provided that the award is sufficient to cover the required advance minimum payment. This plan excludes university work-study awards. Students with an insufficient amount of financial aid to cover the minimum advance payment are required to pay the difference by the invoice due date. Students who have not received their official award notice prior to the billing close date are also required to pay the minimum advance payment when due.
