Tuition Deposits

Students returning full-time for the academic year must pay a $500 tuition deposit before registering for fall courses. Your tuition deposit payment is not an additional charge. It will be put toward your total bill to secure your spot for the next academic year. It will be applied to your account and will be split evenly between Fall and Spring which you will be able to see on your bill each semester. Payment of the tuition deposit does not secure housing placement.

How to Pay Your Deposit

Students can pay online by logging into Self Service and clicking on Student Finance. Authorized Users can pay online by accessing TouchNet.

  • Login to TouchNet, select the Deposits tab, and follow the instructions to complete payment.
  • If you have not been previously authorized on TouchNet by your student, ask him/her to sign you up through their Student Statement & Payment WebAdvisor page.
  • Detailed instructions are also available on our Make a Payment page.
