Upon registration each semester, participants will be billed for tuition and fees for courses in which they are enrolled – Fall (2 courses, 6 credits); Spring (2 courses, 6 credits); and Summer (1 course, 3 credits). Payment can be made by cash, check, credit card, Monthly Payment Plan, or financial aid (if awarded). Payment is due within 36 days of billing.  If an employer is reimbursing an employee, tuition (not student fees) will be deferred based on a signed promissory note from the employee issued by the Bursar's Office. Payment of the tuition will be due within one month of semester’s end, whether or not the participant has been reimbursed by their employer. All late payments will be subject to the normal student fees and collection processes. The Monthly Payment Plan offers the opportunity to make 11 monthly payments with an application fee of $45.00.

For a Monthly Payment Plan application form or for further information regarding billing and reimbursement, please contact Kristen Golden in the Bursar's Office (315-470-6652).
