Payment at the time of Registration

Graduate Level Courses:
Students are required to enclose full payment of tuition and fees at the time of registration. Methods of payment include:

  • Personal Check
  • Credit Card (Most Cards are honored)
  • Approved Institute Voucher(s)
    Vouchers only cover tuition costs and do not cover fees. Fees are the responsibility of the registrant and must be included with any vouchers.

Science Prerequisite Courses:

  • Credit Card (Most Cards are honored) - Register and pay online using this payment method.
  • Approved Institute Vouchers(s) - If you choose to register online, you must make full payment
    at that time.  Vouchers can then be submitted before the 5th class day and a refund of tuition
    will be processed.
  • Financial aid is not available to students taking Science Prerequisites in the Fall or Spring semesters. 

While prompt registration does not guarantee enrollment, you are encouraged to register early.


If submitting an Institute Voucher for payment, make sure that it is the original and that all necessary approvals have been obtained. Also be sure to include payment of applicable fees for graduate level courses.

Vouchers must be redeemed by the 12th class day of the semester of enrollment. For shortened modules, vouchers must be redeemed by the 5th class day of the module. See Voucher Redemption Policy page for more detailed information.
