Additional Information:


  • Tuition assistance will be paid at the base cost of graduate or undergraduate tuition rates plus the infrastructure fee.  Any balance owed must be paid by the last day to drop a class at 100% to avoid late fees.  Unpaid fees will result in a financial hold placed on the student’s record which will prevent viewing grades, transcripts, and future enrollment.
  • Students must register for classes on-line. Tuition assistance will be reflected on your bill after you are enrolled in class(es).
  • Students must physically withdraw from a class for payments to be refunded.
  • Students must maintain a GPA of 2.0 or greater for Undergraduate Programs and 3.0 or greater for Graduate Programs to maintain eligibility for tuition assistance.
