Financial Aid

Students must file a Free Application for Federal Student aid (FAFSA) to ensure consideration for federal financial aid. Award and program eligibility are determined individually for each student based upon numerous factors including the program of study and the level of enrollment (full-time, part-time, etc.). Please visit the Office of Financial Aid website for more information about funding your education through student loans and grants.

Students who are receiving financial aid may still enroll in the TuitionPay extended payment plan to pay off any balance that financial aid does not cover.

Use of Federal Financial Aid to Pay Prior Year Charges

Federal financial aid awarded for the current academic year cannot be used to pay for prior year outstanding balances (balances incurred during or prior to Summer). This prior balance must be paid by personal payment regardless of the amount of aid anticipated or disbursed for the first enrollment period of the academic year before that enrollment can be confirmed.

Tuition Reimbursement Plan (ROOSTR)

The tuition reimbursement plan allows eligible students to defer tuition payments up to three weeks after grades are available for the term. To participate in the Tuition Reimbursement Plan, the student’s employer must cover at least 75% of the total cost of tuition. There is a $30.00 deferment fee to participate in this program.

Each term a student must:

  • Submit a copy of employer’s tuition reimbursement policy
  • Submit a letter from the employer to confirm the student’s reimbursement eligibility and indicate the percentage of tuition covered (listing any applicable restrictions) and complete a promissory note
  • Update eligibility each term of enrollment
  • Pay any portion of the tuition and fees (generally at least $180) not covered by the employer by the payment due date or upon registration thereafter.
  • A late fee of $100 will be assessed to the student’s account if complete payment is not received by the extended payment due date. Please verify the ROOSTR due date with the Student Accounts Office.

Direct Bill Payment Plan

The direct bill payment plan allows a student to attend the University under an employee benefit plan or other sponsored plan. The benefit should not be contingent on the course grade received. The student’s employer or sponsor pays the cost of tuition and fees directly to the University. To participate in this plan, students must:

  • Submit a payment voucher from the employer/agency or a letter certifying the student’s eligibility for the benefits and the stated value of the benefits;
  • Update eligibility each term of enrollment
  • Pay any portion of the tuition and fees not covered by the employer or agency by the payment due date, or upon registration thereafter.
