Tuition deposit

Your tuition deposit is required after you’ve received your offer of admission. The deposit will be applied to your account and will be used as a credit towards your first-semester tuition payment. The tuition deposit is non-refundable. It is important to pay the tuition deposit in advance of the deadline as we do not provide extensions for the standardized dates.
