Target Dates To Enroll By

Students planning on applying for Financial Aid must have files complete and be awarded aid prior to their tuition due date to avoid the risk of being dropped from their classes for non-payment. Students that are awarded financial aid less than their tuition and fee balance must pay in full or set up a payment plan for the gap balance by their tuition due date.
