Notes

  1. Undergraduate tuition fees cover 12 or 15 units per quarter. 15 units per quarter are required to graduate in: 3 calendar years ( = 4 academic years = 12 academic quarters).
  2. Students taking less than 12 credits or more than 15 credit per quarter will receive a pro-rated bill. The cost of tuition per 3 units of credit (typically 3 credits = 1 course) equals the full-time tuition for the term divided by four. Their originally granted institutional financial aid will also be pro-rated; the student will receive the proportional amount of scholarship per course they received when taking a “full” (12-15 unit) class load.
  3. Minimum payment frequency is quarterly.
  4. Late Payment Penalty: All tuition and fee payments are due by 5:00 PM on the Friday before the first day of class. Failure to pay by the required deadline will result in late payment charge of 4%. These penalties will be assessed on the total unpaid balance each quarter on the Friday following the start of classes, one week after the due date. The 4% penalty assessment on delinquent account balances takes place quarterly, on an ongoing basis until the entire outstanding balance is paid in full. If current or past account balances are delinquent, the University reserves the right to un-enroll current students from their classes. Please be aware that students with past-due account balances are not entitled to receive final grades, transcripts, a diploma or certificate, and/or other possible University-provided verifications until the balance is paid in full.
  5. A parking permit issued by the Student Life Office is required for all students with a car; the cost will depend on whether the student is commuting or living on-campus. For detailed parking policy, please click here
  6. Not all students may be eligible to live on campus. Please see Residential Policies and Housing Rules in the Student Handbook.
  7. Selection of the Single bedroom option (having a bedroom to yourself) is subject to availability.
