Tuition Payment and Pay

Since there is NO automatic deduction to pay for tuition this year, all students must pay their tuition on their own.  There is an interest free period until September 28 for students to do this.  Scholarship money should be distributed by the mid September.  If you want a breakdown of your pay an when you will be getting it throughout the year, your department admin should be able to print this off for you.  We also have an updated version of our payroll calculator from last year to tell you how much you should be getting paid.
