Payment Plans: The student can divide their charges into installments. It is the responsibility of the student to enroll in a payment plan each semester. Failure to remit these payments may result in the withholding of credits, transcripts, diplomas, registration. In addition, a late payment fee may be assessed each month for not submitting tuition payments, as agreed. However, this will not exempt students from liability for those charges. Enrollment into this plan includes an application fee of $50.

Enrolling in a Payment Plan: Visit the E-payment Center by logging into Cardinal Apps.
