Payments

1. All charges are due and payable in full at time of registration unless otherwise noted or an authorized deferment has been granted.

2. Students will not be allowed to register for classes without complete payment of past due charges.

3. Once a student has completed the registration process, that student is responsible for payment for classes. If the student is not able, or chooses not to attend, that student must drop the courses in the Records/Registration Office.

  • THE STUDENT WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY COURSE(S) NOT OFFICIALLY DROPPED.
  • TO AVOID ALL CHARGES (EXCEPT NON-REFUNDABLE FEES), THE COURSE(S) MUST BE DROPPED BEFORE THE FIRST DAY OF THE SEMESTER/SESSION, NOT THE FIRST DAY OF THE CLASS.
