RATIONALE: To establish guidelines for payment deadlines
POLICY: Payment Deadlines
Tuition and Fees
The fall semester fee bill is payable prior to August 1; the spring semester is payable prior to January 8. Failure to receive a bill does not relieve a student of responsibility for payment of fees by the specified due dates. Partial payment of tuition and fee will not be accepted. Failure to make payment on time will result in cancellation of the privileges accorded a student including registration and residence hall assignment. Registration is not complete nor is the residence hall assignment confirmed in any semester until all semester fees have been paid.
Late Payment Fee
A late payment fee of $50 is payable by all undergraduate students whose tuition and fees are not paid in full on the published due date. Checks returned by the bank for any reason are considered late payment. Students may have services denied if all fees have not been paid by the due date.
Acceptance Fee (Advance Fee)
A freshman student entering the University in the fall semester must make a nonrefundable payment of $150 by May 1. This payment will apply toward the University fee bill. Failure to remit payment will result in cancellation of admission. The new freshman student is encouraged to make payment as soon as the student’s intention to accept admission is firm.
A transfer or readmitted student entering the University in the fall semester, and a freshman, transfer or readmitted student entering in the spring semester must make a nonrefundable payment of $150 within fifteen days of receiving notice of admission. This payment will apply toward the University fee bill. Failure to remit payment by the prescribed date will result in cancellation of admission.
