Semester Payment Plan

Basic Fees/Tuition

The College has implemented a new a payment plan which allows you to pay your account balance in five installments per semester. All charges are due and payable in full at the beginning of each semester. If you are not paying your account balance in full, you must enroll in the semester payment plan. The plan is interest-free; however, there is an enrollment fee of $200 per semester, and it is necessary to re-enroll in the plan each semester. A Late Payment Fee of $10 is assessed for each installment not paid on or before the Plan's due date. 

You have two options for payment of your semester bill:
OPTION 1: Pay 100% of tuition, fees and room and board (if applicable).
OPTION 2: Enroll in the Semester Payment Plan:

  • Pay 50% of tuition, fees and room and board
  • Pay the remaining balance in four monthly installment payments

Upon enrolling in the Plan, you must meet the ***50% required down payment. Your accepted financial aid for the semester may be subtracted from this amount, and the remaining balance is the amount you will need to pay in four installments. The first payment is the required 50% down payment. See our example for calculating payment plan installments for further clarification.
