Tuition & Financial Aid

Cashier’s Office

The Cashier’s Office will assist you with refunds, viewing bills, making payments, and setting up tuition payment plans. Tuition fee schedule also available here.

Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Aid will assist you in learning about financial planning, what aid is available to you, and how to apply for aid. NOTE: In order to qualify for financial aid you must take at least 5 hours per semester for the term you are borrowing funds. If you are taking two courses one term and plan to take one course the second term, make sure you borrow enough during the two-course term to cover the second term. Non-degree students do not qualify for financial aid. Dropping courses may result in overall lower costs, which may trigger financial aid to recall some of their financial aid awards (you’ll have to pay it back now).
