Tuition and Fees

Upon registration, students are considered financially responsible for all tuition and fees. A Summarized Student Statement is generated the 15th of each month. This statement reflects only that activity which has taken place on the student account in the last billing cycle. Tuition discounts do not apply to students enrolling in Adult Accelerated Programs.
