Tuition and fees are due usually one week (7 calendar days) prior to the first day of class each term, excluding summer terms and sessions (see Fee Payment Table). Check your Student Center for account information and specific deadlines. It is important that you pay your tuition and fees by the due date to avoid late fees. If an account remains unpaid after the second Friday of classes, you will be dropped from your courses. If you are dropped from courses for non-payment, an additional fee is assessed for re-enrollment.
