Room Deposits

All resident students are required to pay a $200 non-refundable deposit to secure a room for the next Fall semester. This payment will be required each year the student is in residence on the campus. Payments can be made with check or money order. No cash or credit cards will be accepted. This $200 payment will be credited to the student's account as a room deposit paid in advance when the Fall invoices are sent in July. The deposit will not be returned to the student should housing be terminated for any reason. The only exemptions to this policy are the Harney Scholarships, fully funded International Scholarships and the EOF recipients. These students will be required to sign a separate housing contract in lieu of the room deposit.

Determination of Tuition Charges – Over Credits

Students who enroll in more than 18 credits in fall or spring semester will be assessed additional tuition charges at the then current per credit tuition rate.

For students enrolled through the Graduate and Continuing Studies programs, tuition charges are determined each semester based on the total number of credits for which the student registers.


The College reserves the right to change established tuition, fees and services, to add fees and services and to determine the effective date of such changes without prior notice.
