Payment of tuition and all other fees and penalties is due prior to the course start date for cash pay and tuition reimbursement students. Regardless of financial source, the student is responsible for all costs of the program in which he/she is enrolled.

  2. Payments are due in advance of the start date of each new course, as listed on the payment schedule.
  3. A late fee of $25 may be charged if payment is not received prior to the start date of the course.
  4. For cash-paying students, if the payment is not received in full by the start date of the next course, grades will not be released.
  5. If payment is not received for two sequential courses, the student will not be allowed to attend class.
  6. No transcripts will be provided to any student with an outstanding balance.
  7. Students may be subject to Administrative Dis­missal (removal from the program) for failure to meet financial obligations.
