ELI Payment Policy

Payment due dates

  • All students must pay tuition, student health insurance, and fees in full, or sign up for a payment plan with the bursar, before the first day of class each session.
  • Returning students are encouraged to pay for the next session by the final day of the current session and new students are encouraged to pay during orientation.

 Students who have paid previous session in full

  • Students will be registered and permitted to attend class from day one of the session.
  • If students do not pay the current session in full, or sign up for the payment plan with the bursar, by the end of the first day of Week 1, they will be called into the ELI office to discuss their payment.
  • If students do not pay the current session in full, or sign up for the payment plan with the bursar, by the second day of Week 1, they will be assessed a $100 late fee.
  • If students do not pay the current session in full, or sign up for the payment plan with the bursar by the fifth day of Week 1, they will be dropped from classes and terminated in SEVIS.

Students who owe from previous session

  • Students cannot be registered for classes until they have paid the previous session’s balance in full.
  • Once students pay the previous session’s balance in full, they will be registered and permitted to attend class, as long as they are registered before the end of the add/drop period. The add/drop period ends after the fifth (5th) day of class. They must then pay the current session in full, or sign up for the payment plan, by the fifth day of class.
  • Every hour of class that unregistered students miss will be counted toward their total absence allotment of 33 hours for that session.
  • On the sixth (6th) day of the session, students who have not registered or requested a transfer will be terminated in SEVIS.

Payment plan

  • The payment plan is set up with the Bursar's Office.
  • The plan has a total of 2 payments.
    • The 1st payment is $1,420 (half of tuition + half of technology fee + full health insurance cost) and it is due by the first day of class.
    • The 2nd payment is $1,100 (remaining half of tuition + half of technology fee) and it is due one month after the session start date.
  • Payment plan payments made after the installment deadline will be assessed a $25 late fee and a hold will be placed on the delinquent account.
