If registering after the start of the term, financial clearance must be achieved at the time of registration.
If financial clearance is not made by the first day of a Day Program term, a $100 late payment fee will be assessed, and a business office hold will be placed on your account.
If financial clearance is not made by the first day of a Graduate or Doctoral program, you will be in jeopardy of disenrollment from your classes. Any class-related fees are not refundable.
For FLEX Students, if there are no payments or you are not enrolled in the Tuition Payment Plan after the add/drop period ends for the current month, a hold will be placed on your account.
