Commitment Tuition Deposit
All accepted students are required to pay a non-refundable $100 Commitment Tuition Deposit. The Commitment Tuition Deposit enables each student to confirm enrollment at a college to which s/he has been offered admission and will be applied to the first semester tuition charges. For the Fall semester, the deposit must be received/postmarked by May 1, the national deadline for accepting offers of admission and financial aid. Students admitted after the May 1st deadline are strongly encouraged to pay the deposit as soon as possible.
For the Spring semester, the deposit much be received/postmarked by December 15.
Students may have the Commitment Tuition Deposit waived by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $3,000 or less.
