Late Payment Fee Guidelines

All continuing students are expected to register and pay their tuition and fees for the fall term in full by August 1. Payments for the spring term are due by the Friday of the first full week in January.  Continuing students who do not pay their bills by these dates or who fail to make payment arrangements with the Office of Enrollment Services are subject to a late payment fee.

All new undergraduate students and all new graduate students are expected to register as soon as possible but no later than the last day of the add/drop period. If registration occurs after the end of the add/drop period, tuition payments are due at the time of registration. Students who do not pay their tuition bills at the time of registration or who fail to make arrangements with the Office of Enrollment Services are subject to a late payment fee. 

Late payment fees are assessed three times each term (October, November, and December in the fall and February, March, and April in the spring)
