Payment FAQs

Returned Check Policy

The University will charge a $30.00 fee for each check, electronic or paper, returned by the bank for any reason.

Payments made by check or electronic transaction that are returned for non-sufficient funds (NSF) are subject to penalties and must be repaid within 5 days of notification. In addition, students who present an NSF payment in order to release their financial hold to register, may have their registration for all future terms cancelled. In this case, the financial hold for any registration activity will not be released until all funds have cleared..

The University will refuse to accept e-checks or any paper personal checks as payment on a student account after two checks, paper or electronic and regardless of issuer, were posted to that account then returned for any reason by the bank. Future payments to that student's account must be made by money order, cashier's check or credit card.

When are payments due?

Payment is due on the 28th of each month. Tuition and fee charges for fall and spring terms are billed in September and February respectively. Summer term charges are billed in June and/or July depending on enrollment. Please see the calendar for more information.

Is there a fee for paying with a credit card?

Yes, all credit card transactions are assessed a non-refundable 2.4% Service Fee. The Service Fee will appear as a separate transaction on your credit card statement, and two payment transactions will appear on your student account Payment History. You will also receive two receipts when paying by credit card, one for the original payment and a second for the non-refundable Service Fee.
