Paying for your studies
Payment for tuition (the cost of classes) is due each semester after you are enrolled. Students are not required to pay before arriving on campus. However, it is important for you to consider exactly how you plan on making your payments once you're here!
When it comes to paying for your studies, there are several options available to you. The Cashier's office is in charge of receiving and recording payments. Check out their website to learn more about payment options for our international students!
The easiest payment option for international students is Flywire. This program can offer better exchange rates, allows you to easily track your funds and offers multilingual 24-hour customer support. Instructions are offered in 6 different languages: English, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Japanese.
Paying with a Check
Paying with a check requires a US bank account, which is easy to set up once you arrive. You will need two forms of identification, such as your passport and student ID card (which you will be issued once you arrive on campus.)
This is a list of the banks closest to campus, though there are many other banks in the area. You are not required to use any of these banks. If you are interested in opening an account, please contact them directly for further information.

Monthly Payment Plan
The university offers students the option of enrolling in a tuition installment payment plan (TIPP) each semester. When students enroll at the beginning of each semester (Fall or Spring), the tuition payments are then divided into 4 payments over 4 months. Details about payment schedules can be found on the Cashier's page.
Enrolling in TIPP is very easy. You can go online to your iSIS account and enroll (learn how here pdf) or print and complete a paper form (pdf). Regardless of which method a you choose, a small enrollment fee is required for each semester.
