Fees & Tuition


All fees are payable at the time of registration each semester, unless otherwise noted in the schedule of classes or the How to Pay page on this website. Registration at the beginning of each term is incomplete until all fees are paid, and no student may be admitted to classes without having met his/her financial obligations. No student may re-enroll, graduate, or receive a transcript until all accounts are settled. The term "account" includes any indebtedness or obligation to the College. The student's responsibility for any indebtedness or obligation to the College is not relieved by non-attendance of class.
