The Trustees of the University reserve the right to change tuition rates and to make additional charges whenever they believe it to be necessary.  The University reserves the right to make a finance charge computed by a periodic rate of 1 percent per month which is an annual rate of 12 percent on amounts past due 30 days or more and to add all costs of collection, including a reasonable sum for attorney's fees, or charge a one-time $65 late fee per semester.

International students who are admitted must make known to the University the source of their financial support for their college education. They will be expected to make a deposit before a certificate of eligibility (I-20) is issued.

The University makes available a monthly payment plan as well as federal and private loan programs. Information on the payment plan and the loan programs are available to all students. Please contact the Office of the Bursar for additional information.

No degree will be conferred and no transcripts will be issued until all financial obligations to the University have been met.
