The University reserves the right to deny access to, or use of, University facilities to any student with an outstanding balance. A student who fails to settle any account due to the University will not be considered a student in good standing and will not be allowed to enroll for the following semester.

Non-Attendance

If a student is registered for a particular semester but elects not to attend, the student must notify the Registrar immediately. Non-attendance does not cancel charges and the student will be held financially accountable for all courses for which he/she is registered.

Back to Explanation of Fees.

Internships/Independent Study

The University considers an internship or independent study a course like any other and therefore is subject to tuition and fees. The amount charged will depend on the number of credit hours taken. Internship or independent study payment deadlines are dependent on the date that registration occurs.
