Frequently Asked Questions

  • When is the monthly payment deducted?
    The tuition payment is automatically deducted on the 5th of each month from a checking or savings account.
  • What happens if I don’t have enough money in my account?
    If your payment on the 5th is not successful, it will be tried again on the 20th of the month. Any time a payment is returned, you will receive notification on how the returned payment will be handled. Your agreement will be processed until the balance owed is paid in full.

    If you have a returned payment, you will be assessed a $30 returned payment fee. Please note: your financial institution may also assess you a fee. Returned payment fees are automatically deducted from the account you have provided. If your returned payment fee is returned, it will not be reattempted. You will still owe the fee, and you may be asked to pay it before setting up a new payment plan.

    Payment plan fees and returned payment fees are subject to change in future academic years or semesters.
