Occasionally an individual course may have an additional fee, i.e., lab and/or materials fee. In each case, the Schedule of Courses will note a fee if applicable, and the course syllabus will state the fee. All tuition and fees are due and payable in full (in US dollars) on the official first day of the semester. Payment can be made by check or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express). We encourage all students to pay via the Student Portal. Accounts must be cleared prior to any additional registrations.
