Payments for all student accounts charges (tuition, fees, residence halls, food plans, and medical insurance) may be made by cash, check, wire transfers, or credit cards. The University accepts American Express, Discover, and Master Card.  Anyone who uses a credit card to pay a tuition account will be charged a non-refundable convenience fee equal to 2.5% of the transaction.

Students encountering difficulties in resolving their financial obligations are encouraged to see Student Accounts (Kline Hall – Room 107) for assistance in meeting their responsibilities. The University has payment plan options for your convenience:TMS (Tuition Management Systems).

Students with outstanding indebtedness may not attend classes until payment is made. Failure to pay a past due account will result in the account being placed on a “financial hold” status, barring registration for future semesters, release of grades and academic transcripts. In addition, accounts in serious default will be reported to a collection agency, credit bureau and legal counsel. Collections expenses equal to 50% of the outstanding charges and other such costs will be added to the amount due.
