Tuition and Fees

Payment for all tuition and fees per semester is due by Friday prior to the start of classes.

A deferred payment option is available by application only to on campus students, fully enrolled in a program at CSBS&C. A minimum payment of 25% of tuition & fees is required and a 5% payment plan fee will be collected at the point of application.

Online students, occasional students and first semester on campus students are not eligible to apply for deferred payment.

Students will not be allowed to attend class if the above financial requirements are not met.

Students with unpaid balances at the end of a semester will not be permitted to write their final exams and grades will not be issued. In addition, these students cannot register for classes in the following semester.

Chronic financial problems may result in financial holds, suspension or expulsion of offending student.
