Payment for tuition charges is due no later than the first day of the respective term. Payment for tuition charges is accepted in several forms as indicated on the invoice.
Students who have a third-party sponsor paying all or a portion of their University tuition charges must provide their campus or advisor sufficient proof of sponsorship prior to the first day of the respective term. Proof of sponsorship may include a military TA, VA documentation, or employer sponsorship documentation. Any portion not covered by a sponsor must also be paid in full by the student prior to the start of the term. All third-party invoices have a net 30 due date.
In the event a third-party sponsor denies payment or has not paid by the end of the term, the tuition balance becomes the responsibility of the student.
Students who are requesting to defer payment have the option of signing up for a Tuition Payment Plan. The payment plan is intended for the deferment of the cost of tuition only. Payment for the cost of books, course materials, and shipping fees may not be deferred.
When a student's account is delinquent, registration for any subsequent semesters will be denied. A delinquent student account will result in suspension of all academic procession, and information on class performance, grades, and transcripts will be withheld.
If the delinquent status is not resolved, the University may place the account with a commercial collection agency for further collection and/or litigation action. The student is also subject to the costs of collection (33-50%) and reasonable attorney's fees.
