As of April 2017, all credit card payments incur a 2.3% service fee. University banking policy dictates that we assess this charge separately from the deposit and tuition payments, thus you will be asked to submit two payments, 1) tuition and/or deposit, and 2) the 2.3% service fee. If you choose to pay by credit card, you must submit both the payment and the service fee before the stated deadlines for your admission to be complete. Alternatively, you may choose to avoid the 2.3% service charge, by mailing a check or money order, postmarked by stated deadline, to:
