Payment Policy

Enrolling in classes is a financial commitment and a student becomes liable for his/her tuition and fees upon registration. Payment in full is due no later than the first day of each quarter. A deferred payment plan is available with approval from the business office ( or ext. 130). Students who fail to comply with the payment policy or who default from the payment plan may have their registration cancelled and are subject to the refund policy. If no payment is received or payment arrangements made within 21 days of the quarter start date, the student will automatically be removed from classes, but will still owe the prorated amount per withdrawl date. Late payments are subject to a late payment fee per occurrence.

Tuition Refunds

Tuition only will be refunded (in accordance with our refund schedule) to students who officially withdraw from the institution or withdraw from a course during a quarter. Fees are not refundable. When dropping or withdrawing from a course after week three of the quarter start date, students will be assessed a fee (see page 75 of the Academic Catalog).

Refunds are administered according to the following schedule:

  • Notice of withdrawal/drop within the first 5 calendar days of the quarter start date, refund is 100%.
  • Notice of withdrawal/drop after 5 calendar days, refund is pro-rated.
