While your financial aid is packaged for the year, it is split by semester and you are billed on a semester basis as detailed in the costs below.
Your balance is due in full for the Semester by the first day of classes.
If you opt for the payment plan through Nelnet, our new tuition payment system vendor, charges students $25 per semester to administer a payment plan. Students have option to pay balance with electronic debits (without transaction fees) or by credit card (with fees).
Plans should include out-of-pocket tuition, travel and room and board.
Instructions for electronic payments will be emailed to each student after registration is finalized.
Our new tuition payment system affords us to provide the opportunity of multiple plans for payment as well as a "parent portal". Students, through an electronic Family Educational Right and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) form, may convey permission to share information such as class schedule, grades and student account information to other such as parents, spouses, churches, or other entities providing support through the "parent portal".
