Payment Policy

Students will be given the option to pay or postpone their fees by the deadline above. The fee postponement option will be available to domestic (not F2/F2) students in Corsair Connect. Students not opting to postpone must pay their fees or will be dropped.

Students must have a $0.00 balance or must have postponed their fees, otherwisethey will be recursively dropped from unpaid courses for non-payment (“last course in, first course out”) until a "zero" or positive fund balance is achieved.Students adding classes after the nonpayment drop deadline, who did not previously postpone their fees, must pay.

Students are responsible for dropping themselves from courses. Students who have postponed their fees, or added classes without paying/postponing will remain enrolled and a hold will be placed on their account, preventing them from requesting transcripts, enrollment verifications, etc., until the fees are paid.

Adding or dropping a class after the published refund deadline noted in student's Corsair Connect account will result in a full assessment of fees. All fees subject to change. Fees may be paid through Corsair Connect by Visa or MasterCard, or in person at the Bursar's Office by cash, money order, or cashiers check, or credit card.
