An advance deposit is required for all returning students for the Fall.  This deposit allows the student to pre-register for classes for the upcoming term. It also allows resident students to participate in their room selection for the next academic year. Students seeking off campus status must pay the resident student deposit in order to proceed through the process for approval. If approved, the total deposit will be applied to tuition and fees when billed. The advance deposit is due as follows:


Resident Students


Commuter Students


Part-time Students


For returning students, the advance deposit is due on or before March 1st and will be refunded, in full for written cancellations received by June 15th. The advance deposit will be applied against the tuition and fees charged when the semester is billed. For students not attending Fall term, the Spring term advance deposit is due prior to the student pre-registering for Spring courses and is refunded in full for written cancellations received by December 1st.

Resident students who request and receive permission to live off campus after June 15th will forfeit $300 of the required advance deposit.
