Tuition & Fees

Prior to the first day of the summer, fall, and spring (including January intersession) semesters, students may select from a number of payment options (please see Student Accounts for additional information).

Registration requests cannot be processed unless accompanied by appropriate payment or selection of an available payment option.

Students who have just begun the financial aid application process may not check “financial aid” in lieu of payment at the time of registration. Students wishing to receive financial aid must pay for courses at the time of registration if they have not completed all required documentation.

Tuition for each course (including laboratory or computer fees) is included in the course listings.

Note: Transcripts and grades will not be released to students with an outstanding financial obligation to the University.
