Tuition & Fees

The Student Accounts Office serves as the administration point for most university fees and charges, however, we cannot make adjustments to any fees without the permission of the appropriate department.

It is important to review your statement of account regularly, especially after registration changes. In addition to term fees due at the beginning of the term, other fees such as departmental fees (field trips, supplies), late payment fees may be posted to your account throughout the year.

Students must plan their registration activity carefully, It is the student's responsibility to be familiar with the academic calendar for financial and academic matters and penalties.

When calling for information regarding an account belonging to your child or spouse, please remember that student account information is confidential. For further details, please review the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy policy.
