Students are required to pay tuition and fees by the payment due date for each semester. If a student adds additional courses during the add/drop period, he or she must pay the additional fee(s) at the time of enrollment. If payment is not received, the college will make every internal effort to collect these funds. Restrictions will be placed on any account with an outstanding balance prohibiting access to grades, transcripts, degrees, diplomas, and participation in any future term at the college. The restriction will remain until the account is paid in full.
As a supplement to the University Refund Policy, we also offer a Tuition Insurance program through Liberty Mutual Insurance which provides 100% reimbursement of all insured tuition, room and board, and some fees. Coverage includes withdrawal due to illness, injury, mental health issues and other reasons. Visit the Tuition Insurance page to learn more.
If a CE extension is requested and approved by the Program Director, students will have until the first day of classes in the subsequent semester to complete their culminating experience/thesis without paying a fee. Any student whose completed culminating experience/thesis is not submitted by the first day of classes in the subsequent semester is required to pay a thesis continuation fee of $400.
For further information, please visit the Policy Handbook, page 61 to learn more.
To accept your admissions offer and reserve your place in the class, a nonrefundable $2,500 tuition deposit must be made in U.S. Dollars by the below deadlines. Tuition deposits are nonrefundable, and scholarship or federal loan money cannot be used to pay the deposit.
Due to limited spots in each program, students are encouraged to make the deposit as soon as possible. Once the program reaches full capacity, students depositing subsequently will be put on a wait-list (even if the tuition deposit is received before the tuition deposit deadline). Your tuition deposit will be deducted from your first tuition payment.
Tuition Deposit Deadline: May 1, 2023
Paying Online with Credit or Debit Card
Accepted students who wish to submit the tuition deposit to save their place in the program should log into their online student portal. Follow the Deposit Now button and further instructions on your homepage.
If you experience difficulties in making the tuition deposit payment, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note that if a student makes a deposit after program capacity has been reached, and is therefore put on a waitlist, the deposit may be deferred to the next academic year or refunded.
For more information regarding payments, please contact the Valencia Campus Office of Student Accounts at email@example.com.
