Tuition & Fees
Don't get dropped from classes, Pay tuition on time
Generally, tuition is due when you register. Paying at that time will eliminate any chance that you will be dropped from your classes for nonpayment. If you are not able to pay tuition when you register, please see the
Important Dates page
tuition due dates.
If your tuition is paid by a third party, it is your responsibility to verify your tuition has been paid.
If you foresee problems paying your tuition, contact our Cashier's Office and ask about the Student Tuition Easy Pay Plan (STEPP). This monthly-pay program will assist qualified students in paying their tuition on time.
