There are two payment methods available:

  1. Full Payment due on the first official day of the semester.
  2. Payment Plan ($65 processing fee). This plan is due on the last Friday before the start of the semester. See Forms Directory in Student Portal.

AUDITS/NON-CREDITS

Auditing a course or being allowed to take a course for non-credit means a student has obtained permission to attend the course and is not enrolled for academic credit. Thus, audit or non-credit courses cannot be dropped nor refunds issued. Audited courses are not listed on transcripts.

COSTS OF BOOKS AND MATERIALS

The cost of books and materials is determined by the type and number of courses taken each term. TKU’s online bookstore (tku.ecampus.com) allows students to shop for their books by course in order to determine an estimate of what course materials and texts will cost based on their anticipated schedule.

PAYMENT OF ACCOUNTS

All tuition and fees are due and payable in full on the first official day of the semester. Payment may be made by check or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover). Students are encouraged to make payments via the student portal.

First-time international students are required to pay a deposit before an I-20 is issued. International students also do not qualify for the deferred payment plan mentioned below.

DEFERRED PAYMENT PLANS

Students may choose to utilize a deferred payment plan. This payment plan allows students to pay one-third of their balance on the first official day of the semester, with the remaining thirds due on the 15th of the next month, and the 15th of the third month. This plan is automated and the form must be received by Student Financial Services by the Friday before the first official day of the semester. There is a fee to utilize this plan.

OUTSTANDING BALANCES

A student’s account must be current by the end of each enrollment period. Students will not be permitted to register for courses in subsequent semesters if they have an unpaid balance on their account unless special permission is obtained from Student Accounts. A student’s records, grades and transcripts will not be released while an outstanding balance exists.

REFUND POLICY

Tuition refunds/credits are made for withdrawal from a course(s) when an official Schedule Adjustment (Drop/Add) Form is filed with the Registrar. Students may withdraw from a course and receive a full refund any time prior to the beginning of the course or during the first week of a fifteen-week semester. The date of withdrawal is certified as the date on which the Schedule Adjustment (Drop/Add) Form is filed with the Registrar (not the date of the last class attended). Failure to attend class does not constitute withdrawal. Students failing to properly withdraw from a course will not normally receive a refund. For a Refund/credit schedule, minus the non-refundable matriculation fee, please see HERE.
