Tuition and related fees are billed each term and are due in full prior to the beginning of the term.  For new students entering, the payment deadline is Matriculation Day.  (Returning Student deadlines are generally two weeks before the official start date of the term.)  Deadlines are well-publicized in multiple venues, and claims of ignorance lack merit.  Penalties are assessed for late registration and/or payment. Fees for adding or dropping classes are assessed after the term’s tuition payment deadline.
