Payment Options

Three payment options are available.

  • Cash Discount: When the total cost for the quarter (tuition, room, and board) is paid in advance, the cost will be discounted 2%. Payment must be received by September 15, December 15, and March 15 to be eligible for this discount. (This discount is available only to students without need-based grants or loans.)
  • Monthly Payment Plan: You may choose to split the tuition into nine monthly payments starting September 15 and ending May 15.
  • The Tuition Guarantee Plan: Under this plan, the tuition cost in effect at the time of the first payment agreement will remain in effect until graduation, provided the student is enrolled full-time continuously (except summers) and the total estimated costs (including room and board) are paid by September 15 each year. (This discount is only available to students without need-based grants or loans.)
