Tuition & Expenses

Tuition and fees are due and payable at the beginning of each semester in attendance. Students receiving financial aid are responsible for arranging payment of tuition and fees by the published deadlines. If a student anticipates difficulty with payments, the student should make an appointment with the Program Director or Dean to discuss the matter. These administrative representatives for the program may approve alternate payment arrangements. Tuition and fees are subject to change and are non-refundable. Students will be given at least a 30-day notice of proposed tuition and fee changes. Late fees will apply if tuition and other program fees listed herein are not paid in full or in the amount required by payment deadlines (this is typically the 3rd day of the semester).
