    FOR STUDENTS WITHOUT A TUITION DEFERMENT- Payment in full for Fall 2021 registration charges is due on Friday August 27, 2021 for all courses that start on or before that date.

    Students not paying by the due date may be subject to class cancellation and late fee assessment. 

     TUITION DEFERMENT PAYMENT DEADLINES - The payment deadline for students with a billable Florida Prepaid tuition plan, Graduate Assistants and students with a Financial Aid deferment is Friday, October 8, 2021.  Students failing to pay by the deferment due date may be assessed a $100 late payment fee. 

    The payment deadline for students with a Veteran's deferment is Friday November 19, 2021 to avoid late payment fee assessment.

     The University does not offer payment plans or extensions of the payment deadline.


    The tuition and fees rates can be found here, Tuition and Fee Information.

    Cancellation for Non-Payment

    In Spring 2020 the reinstatement process changed. Information on how to get re-added to your courses cancelled for financial reasons can be found on the Registrar's web page, Re-Add Process.

    Students with pending cancellations need to pay all charges due in full by the deadline to avoid being dropped from their courses. Student's that have not paid by the deadline will be assessed a late registration fee, have any courses with active registration dropped and will no longer have access to Canvas. Students will need to follow the Re-Add Process to get back into any cancelled courses.

  • Student refund checks are only processed once a week, on Thursday. The mailing of paper check refunds generated during the first and second week of classes will be delayed approximately 1 week due to the increased time needed to process the large volume of checks. 
  • Electronic deposits (eDeposit) refunds are processed every business day. Sign up for eDeposit to have your refund deposited directly into your designated bank account, which allows you faster access to your funds.
