  • Payment must be paid in full before the first class and by established deadlines unless you enroll in the University approved payment plan. This option requires 50% of tuition paid by the deadline followed by the remaining portion in two payments: 25% one month after deadline, 25% two months after deadline. This option carries a sign-up fee and an interest charge for the subsequent two monthly payments.
  • There is no University or Federal Financial Aid available for this program.
  • This program is considered non-credit and part-time and will not qualify for loan deferrals while enrolled.
  • There is no third party or corporate billing. If an employer is willing to cost share or cover a portion or all of the tuition, the student will need to make arrangements for payment in full by the deadline with his/her employer. Tuition invoices will be made directly to the student only.
  • Students should evaluate their own financial means for payment before applying.
