Methods of Payment
Payments may be made online, by mail with check or money order, or in person at the Business Office. Students can view their statements online at any time, and can grant parents/guarantor rights to view their billing statements. Those who can view the statements can also pay online or enroll in the automatic payment program. Please note that payments received after 4 p.m. cannot be credited to the account until the next business day. Checks returned by the bank unpaid are subject to a $20 fee.
Terms of Payment
The semester charges for room, board, tuition and program fee will be posted to your bill that is due August 5 for fall semester and January 5 for the spring semester.
If you are not paying in full, required minimum payments must be paid per the following schedule. The first payment must be made before a student can complete registration and attend class.
|Amount||1st Sem.||2nd Sem.|
|25% of the total balance||Aug. 5||Jan. 5|
|33 1/3% of the total balance||Sept. 5||Feb. 5|
|50% of the total balance||Oct. 5||Mar. 5|
|100% of the total balance||Nov. 5||Apr. 5|
+Balance includes any additional charge
There is a 1% finance charge calculated on any unpaid portion of the minimum payment due that is not paid on time.
If there is a Financial Aid Award Letter (see Financial Aid) on file in the Business Office by July 1, the awarded amount for the first semester will be placed on the student’s account before the first bill.
If after 45 days the account is not up to date, it may be necessary to terminate the student’s enrollment. A student’s account must be paid up-to-date before he can be admitted to final examinations each semester.
If you have any questions, email the Financial Aid Office.
Your First Bill
For students who enroll for the first time for the fall semester, the first school bill will arrive in July. You’ll receive an email that your statement is available on StudentCentral (login required). It will list the first semester charges for tuition, room & board (if applicable) and your program fee.
The great thing about getting your bill this early is that you can check whether your financial aid has been factored in—and still do something about it if it isn’t.
If you’ve submitted all the documents requested by the Financial Aid office and your financial aid award package is completed before July 1, any aid you’re eligible to receive will be listed on your statement as expected aid and will be subtracted from the total amount.
If you’re not sure whether your aid has been processed or if the financial aid you’re expecting to receive is not listed on your bill, please contact the Financial Aid office at (864) 242-5100, ext. 3040.
