Payment Deadlines

It is every student's responsibility to be aware of deadlines as posted in the Registrar's Academic Calendar and Transact Activity Details page. A student becomes liable for his or her tuition upon registration. Tuition and fees for courses remaining on the student's account must be paid by the fee payment due date. 

There are only two due dates per semester. The start date of your earliest class determines your fee payment due date.

First Half:

  • POT 1 = full semester
  • POT 2 = first half of semester
  • POT 4 = summer 8 week
  • POT 5 = course starts during first month of term
  • POT 6 = course starts during second month of term

Second Half:

  • POT 3 = second half of semester
  • POT 7 = course starts during third month of term
  • POT 8 = course starts during fourth month of term
  • POT 9 = course starts during fifth month of term        

Payments for classes added after the initial due date are due immediately upon registration.

Payments are applied to charges on students' accounts in order of the charge due dates. For charges with the same due date, payments are applied first to tuition and mandatory fees and then to other charges on the account.

Authorized deferment status may be granted under certain conditions. All students in a deferred fee payment status should review their Transact Activity Details page to verify the deferred status and due date. Failure to pay all tuition and fees or receive authorized deferred payment status by the fee payment due date will result in the assessment of a $100 late payment fee or cancellation of the student's registration.

Students who fail to pay tuition in full, enroll in the payment plan, or make arrangements for a deferred status by the end of the second week of the term are subject to being removed from classes due to non-payment. Students whose registration is cancelled due to non-payment may appeal for reinstatement through the Office of the Registrar and will be assessed a $200 reinstatement fee. The reinstatement fee is made of a $100 late payment fee assessed for late payment and a $100 late registration fee to be re-enrolled. The student will be held liable for all fees assessed for courses remaining on the student's registration at the close of the drop/add period for which a partial payment of fees has occurred or an authorized deferment status has been granted. Under such circumstances, the student's registration may or may not be cancelled. An administrative hold will be placed on the student's record until the tuition and fees are paid in full.

Students with delinquent balances at the University (tuition and fees, financial aid billings, loans, library fines, etc.) must pay these fees in full to avoid assessment of collection costs. Failure to pay the balance will result in holds preventing registration, diplomas, and transcripts. Holds could also prevent the release of financial aid.
