General Information

Tuition and Fees

The college reserves the right to change tuition, fees and charges after publication of the catalog, bulletin and any registration material issued by the college without prior notice at any time. In the event of any increase in the fees or tuition charges, payments already made to the college will be treated as partial payment and notification will be given to the student of the additional amount due and the time and method of payment. In the event of overpayment, the appropriate amount will be refunded. All tuition and related fees are due at the point of registration. This includes any and all financial aid awards to be used as tuition funding. All inquiries concerning residence requirements should be directed to the Office of the Registrar.
