For first-time students entering from high school, the $300 tuition deposit is due by May 1. It will be refunded provided the College receives written notice of cancellation at least 60 days prior to the start of the quarter for which accepted. No refunds will be made to persons canceling during this 60-day period.
For adult students, the $300 deposit must be paid within two weeks after receiving a financial aid award letter. It will be refunded provided the College receives written notice of cancellation at least 60 days prior to the start of the quarter for which accepted. No refunds will be made to persons canceling during this 60-day period.
Tuition is payable in advance. Tuition may be paid in person, by mail, or online through Student Self-Service. The Student Accounts Department accepts payment by cash, check, MasterCard, Visa, or American Express. Billing for tuition and fees is done on a quarterly basis, although the student may make one payment in full for the program. Instructions for registration and payment of term bills are sent by mail to all students for their first term. Subsequent term bill information is available to students online through Student Self-Service six weeks prior to the start of each term. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain and pay the term bill on time. Students who fail to do so are charged a late registration fee. Failed courses will lead to a repeat charge assessed on a per-credit basis.
