The Bursar's Office manages student accounts. We issue online bills for tuition and fees, credit your account for payments you make and that you may receive through financial aid. We also offer a payment plan known as UPay. If you are a Perkins Loan Holder or a Nurse Faculty Loan Holder, contact our loan repayment services.
We are pleased to announce that bills issued this Fall 2016 will consolidate some of the mandatory fees we previously billed separately into one tuition charge. Your tuition charge will reflect the cost of your core education and will now include the curriculum fee and other campus-wide fees; other fees, such as for student activities, housing and dining will be listed separately. Tuition Retention FAQs
Tuition credits, formerly known as waiver, are an award that will lessen the amount of your tuition. While you may receive or be eligible for multiple tuition credits from a variety of sources, you will only be able to use one tuition credit per semester. The dollar value of the tuition credit for the current Academic Year (AY) will remain the same as AY15-16. The value of the tuition credit is based on enrollment eligibility and will not exceed $857 per semester or $1714 per AY.
