Tuition Payment Plan

Students are eligible to apply for an interest-free payment plan for tuition.  This is an easy way for students to break down their education expenses into easy-to-manage installments, rather than one lump-sum payment.  The plan provides flexible plan terms and convenient payment options for a low non-refundable application fee of $16.75.
