January 13, 2014
February 14, 2014
March 14, 2014
April 15, 2014

Monthly Payment Form

Complete the Monthly Payment Agreement available on-line and in the Business Office. Submit the first installment with the agreement form and the one-time $40 processing fee by the tuition due date of January 13, 2014. Late fees will be added to your account if payments are not received in the Business Office by the dates specified above. Monthly statements will not be mailed; therefore, it is your responsibility to retain the tuition guidelines and due dates provided here for your records and to be aware of when payments are due to avoid any late fees.

Tuition Deferment Policy – Tuition payments may be deferred ONLY through one of the following three methods:

1. Completed Financial Aid Package: The Financial Aid Office must have notification of ALL completed paperwork by the tuition due date of January 13, 2014. Be sure to complete and return ALL paperwork sent to you by the Financial Aid staff. Any balance not covered by financial aid must be paid by the tuition due date.

2. Employer’s Tuition Reimbursement Plan: The Business Office requires a copy of the tuition reimbursement policy from the employer and tuition can be deferred until the end of the semester. The employer’s policy guidelines and any balance not paid by the employer must be submitted to the Business Office by the tuition due date.

3. Established Monthly Payment Plan: Tuition can also be deferred in part by setting up a monthly payment plan. See section above for instructions on how to establish a monthly payment plan.
