Payment Plan

If a student’s Financial Aid does not cover 100% of their tuition, fees, room and board charges, the student must set up a Payment Plan to pay their remaining balance. Students must pay 25% of their balance on or before the first day of class.

Any student, who has not completed all financial aid eligibility requirements at the time of registration is considered to be a cash-paying student and must set up a payment plan.

  •  Due on or before registration

Payment Schedule

The Payment Plan allows students to pay in four monthly installments.

Remaining Installments: Due the 19th of each month for Fall Semester (September, October, November)

Remaining Installments: Due the 7th of each month for Spring Semester (February, March, April)

Non-payment

A student can be administratively withdrawn for not meeting their financial obligations. This includes but limited to not completing verification and making monthly installments.

NOTE: Payment plans are for the Fall and Spring Semesters only. Students must have sufficient financial aid or pay in full for Winter and Summer Sessions.

Considerations:

No student will be permitted to register if there is a balance owed to the University from a prior semester. In addition, at least one-third of the current charges must be paid to the University either by currency, certified or cashier’s checks, bank drafts, money order, credit card and/or financial aid, excluding a portion of the University Work-Study award. Payments may be made with the following major credit cards: Master Card, VISA, American Express, or Discover. 

Financial aid awards are awarded on an annual basis, but only one-half of the student’s awards are applicable to each semester. Student scholarships, Federal Pell Grants, and campus-based programs (Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, Federal Perkins Loans) may be applied in equal installments on a semester basis. Because the Federal College Work-Study award materializes only after the student works the prescribed number of hours, the University will not accept Work-Study awarded to a student or any portion thereof in lieu of cash required at registration. Wages earned through University Work-Study may be used, at the student’s option, to pay for educational expenses. The University also has a work program that students can apply for to assist in the paying their balance. The program is provided to students on a first come and first serve basis.

Refund Policy

A student who wishes to withdraw from the University must obtain a “Request for Withdrawal” from the Office of the Registrar. The date of withdrawal for refund purposes is the day indicated on the withdrawal form, unless the Vice President for Student Affairs indicates and documents another date. When the appropriate administrative officers sign the withdrawal form, the request will be processed.

Upon official withdrawal from the University, the Refund Policy allows refundable charges to be adjusted according to the following schedule:

  1. 100% Refund: Withdrawal from the University on or before the 100% Fees Assessment Date, which is the 12th class day. (includes tuition, fees, room and board)
  2. Partial Refund: Withdrawal from the University after the 100% Fees Assessment Date, which is the 12th class day is subject to the following special circumstances:
    1. Student’s voluntary call to active duty
    2. Death of the student or member of his/her immediate family (parent, spouse, child. sibling)
    3. Illness of the student of such severity or duration and confirmed by a physician, such that completion of the semester or term is precluded.,
    4. Cancellation of the course(s) or program by the University
    5. Other exceptional circumstances, with the approval of the President or his designee.
  3. Refund for Special Circumstances
    1. Up to 50% of all charges for withdrawal from the University before the end of the third or fourth week of class.
    2. Up to 20% of all charges for withdrawals from the University before the end of the fifth week of class.

A new federal regulation is effective regarding the return of Title IV financial aid funding when a student withdraws from classes prior to the 60 percent point of the semester. In short, the new regulation requires that the recipient of federal student aid funds return the unearned portion of all federal funding (excluding work-study). The unearned portion is the percentage of time remaining in the semester multiplied by the amount of federal funding the student received on his/her behalf, up to the 60 percent point of the semester. If the student withdraws at or after the 60 percent point of the semester, the funding is considered earned.

An administrative fee equal to the lesser of $100 or 5 percent of school charges assessed the student and any unpaid school charges will be subtracted from the refund. Once the amount of the refund that must be returned to the Student Financial Aid Programs is determined, that amount must be distributed among the programs in the following order:

  1. Federal Direct Loan Program
  2. Federal Pell Grant Program
  3. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program
  4. Other Student Financial Aid Programs
