New Tuition Deadline Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Same Day Pay?
    • The tuition payment deadline for spring 2020 classes has been extended to January 6 at 11: 59 p.m. Starting January 6 and each day thereafter, Same Day Pay goes into effect. That means you'll need to make your tuition payment or establish a payment plan the same day you register for classes. Also starting on January 6, students with unpaid balances will be dropped each day from their classes at 11:59 p.m. 

  • When does Same Day Pay begin?
    • Same Day Pay begins with the spring 2020 registration. The first tuition deadline is 11:59 p.m. on January 6, 2020, and daily tuition deadlines take effect on January 6. Students registering on or after January 6 will need to pay their tuition by 11:59 p.m. on the day they register in order to hold their spot in classes.

  • What if I can’t pay my tuition on the same day I register?
    • Payment plans are available to students wanting more time to arrange payment. You can set up a payment plan online immediately after you register to hold your spot in classes. Plans are available only to students who register by January 31, so visit the payment plan webpage now for details.

  • How do students benefit from Same Day Pay?
    • The first tuition deadline occurs closer to the start of the semester, so students have more time to arrange payment and/or establish a payment plan. Daily – Same Day Pay - deadlines begin after the first deadline eliminates the confusion on when to pay and allows students an opportunity to claim open seats in classes that would have appeared unavailable.

  • What do I do if my financial aid does not cover the full tuition amount?
    • You will need to pay the difference or set up a payment plan by the tuition deadline to hold your spot in classes. IMPORTANT: Financial aid students must set up their payment plans in person at a Financial Aid Office.

  • When do I pay if I’m registering for 12-week, 8-week, or other short semester classes?
    • Your tuition deadline is determined by your registration date. If you register for classes on or before January 6, 2020, you must pay your tuition by 11:59 on January 6. If you register on or after January 6 you will need to pay your tuition by 11:59 p.m. on the day you register.

  • Does Same Day Pay apply to Continuing Education classes?
    • No. At this time, Continuing Education classes are not affected by Same Day Pay requirements.

  • Can I set up a payment plan any time?
    • Spring 2020 payment plans are available through January 31, 2020. Students registering after January 31 will need to pay their tuition in full on the day they register.
