Tuition and Fee Payment Plans

For any unpaid balance there is a late fee assessed each month. It is your responsibility to check your account. If there are any questions or concerns please contact the Bursar’s Office. The office hours of operation are Mon-Fri, 8 am – 4:30 pm. Our staff will however be open extended hours during the first week of class to accommodate students who still need to pay outstanding balances.

You will need to check your WIRED account weekly for any updates or changes. Do not wait on a paper bill to pay your account. If you cannot pay in full we have a payment plan available for the current semester. Any unpaid balances at the end of each semester will be subject to collections.
