Payment Policies

Payment in full or enrollment in a payment plan for the semester’s balance is due prior to or on the first day of class with the completed promissory note. The College’s payment plan option requires a 25% initial payment of the semester’s balance with a one-time plan fee per semester of 15% of the outstanding balance.

We offer a payment alternative through Tuition Management Services (TMS). Sign up forms are available in the Business Office, the Financial Aid Office and were sent with the Award letter. Students may also sign up with TMS through the internet at Using TMS allows students to make monthly payments without being charged interest. There is an enrollment fee of $60 with TMS for their service.

Unless payment in full is made by the first day of the semester, a student’s registration may be cancelled.

Students should be prepared to pay for textbooks and supplies at the time of purchase. The College Bookstore accepts MasterCard, VISA, and Discover Card.

Refunds will be given after the add/drop period of classes. Students need to stop in the Business Office to pick up their refund if applicable or they will be mailed to the home address on file.
