A 10% down payment of the tuition & fees and a $50.00 non-refundable enrollment fee is required at the time of enrollment.

After making the initial 10% payment, the remaining 90% will be payable in monthly installments as follows:

Summer Installment Payment Plans (IPP) will open in May with remaining payments due June 15 and July 15.

Fall Installment Payment Plans (IPP) will open in July with remaining payments due October 1, November 1, and December 1.
