    Payment Options

    Tuition is due by the first day of each semester but we want to make paying for your education as easy as possible.

    You may pay your balance after financial aid in one payment at the beginning of the semester or setup a payment plan with the Accounting Office.  We offer two payments per semester or a ten-month payment plan. Contact the Student Accounts Manager for information on how to setup your payment plan.

    Advising and Registering for Classes

    Once you have been admitted, you will be assigned an academic advisor who will assist you in choosing classes each semester and also help you with other academic issues as you complete your degree requirements. 

    To begin the advising process and register for classes, you should schedule an appointment with your academic advisor as soon as you receive his/her contact information from admissions. These appointments can be done in person or over the phone.
