Every student receives a Tuition Payment Plan (TPP) at orientation. The TPP outlines your financial obligations while enrolled. Your TPP covers all tuition and fees billed to your student account for the length of your program. The quarterly amount will be billed to your account on the first day of the quarter. The first day you attend class, you become responsible for these charges. Please note student account charges do not include the cost of books, tools, supplies or materials.
Here is an example of a Tuition Payment Plan:
Tuition is charged on a quarterly basis to your student account. Tuition payments are always due on the 1st of the month. Students have the option to pay for the full amount for the quarter or to participate in the monthly payment plan. The monthly payment option allows you to make a maximum of three payments during the quarter, with each due on the 1st of the month. The minimum monthly payment amounts can be found in the right hand column of your TPP. Failure to comply with the TPP may result in late fees, holds, and removal from class.
Many students receive financial aid to help cover their tuition costs. If your financial aid covers all of the charges on your student account, you will not be expected to make a payment. If you get more than enough to cover all charges, the difference will be released to you in an excess check. You have the option to hold excess on your account for future charges by filing out a Hold Authorization Form.
If your financial aid does not cover all of the charges on your student account, your aid will be applied toward the last monthly payment of the quarter first. Any amount not covered by financial aid must be paid at the beginning of the quarter. If your balance exceeds the minimum amount due, you are only responsible for the monthly payment amount by the 1st of the month.
