Estimated Fees 

Students will be required to pay total tuition and fees at the time of registration/validation unless financial aid has been granted and registered with the Financial Aid Office. Those who do not qualify for Financial Aid can set up a payment plan through NelNet Business Solutions here. 

Total tuition and fees must be paid in full prior to final examinations. Failure to complete payment by the final examination date will result in your inability to access your transcript.
