Payment Options

You can set up a payment plan to pay smaller amounts of your tuition and fees throughout the semester.

We've made the drop for non-payment policy easier for you to stay enrolled in your classes. There will only be one drop for nonpayment on Jan. 13.

You will not be dropped for non-payment if you:

  • Paid 40% or more of your balance
  • Owe less than $500
  • Enroll in the Installment Payment Plan online; you must set up a new payment plan each term

Learn more about the installment payment plan.
