Eligibility status for in-state tuition rates re-evaluation

Aug. 1 for fall; Dec. 1 for spring

The Certificate of Admission indicates your eligibility status for in-state tuition rates.

To request re-evaluation of your residency status, contact the Office of Admissions and ask to speak with your application processor.

Paying your bill

First official day of semester or date specified on your bill

Payment for tuition, fees, and university room and board charges is due by the first official day of each semester. The exact due date will be specified on your bill. For the fall semester, if you do not register by the August billing date, you will be issued an electronic bill subsequently for your fall semester tuition, fees and other expenses. Payment is due by the date specified on the bill. Refer to the Handbook for Accepted Students and the Student Accounting website for more details about paying your bill and the university’s Installment Payment Plan.
