  • Installment Payment Plans - available April 16 - July 1 (must have $0 previous balance). Payment due dates and amounts are specific to each individual. Students should refer to their Installment Plan for their due dates and amounts. A $25 Late Installment Fee will be charged the day following each due date for missed or incomplete payments.

Approvals of the instructor, the department chair, and the dean are required. The Late Add Fee and Reinstatement Fee will apply (both charged on a per-credit-hour basis).
