13-credit policy

Do you know about the 13-credit policy? If you're a degree-seeking undergraduate, you pay a flat tuition rate based on 13 credits, regardless of your credit load. If circumstances prevent you from registering for 13 or more credits, you can apply for an exemption by the end of the fourth week of the semester.

Fall 2014 aid disbursement

Fall 2014 financial aid will disburse to student accounts beginning after 5 p.m. on Monday, August 25 and continue to disburse throughout the semester. If your financial aid exceeds your tuition and fees charges, you will receive a credit balance in your bank account during the first week of classes. You must sign up for direct deposit to receive your credit balance.
