Yes, You Can Afford to Go to College
But we know it's not easy. A college education is an investment, and worthwhile investments rarely come without a significant price tag. Your first stop on your search for college funding should be your employer's human resources department. Many companies offer tuition assistance.
To make your education a bit more affordable, the College of Professional Studies offers several different payment methods.
- Pre-payment: You must pay for each course before each session.
- Financial Aid: If you plan to use financial aid, be sure you file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before registering for your first session.
- Voucher/Authorization Process: You can choose this option if your employer uses a voucher system. A voucher is an approval form for each course obtained by you from your employer. The voucher or authorization form is due to our business office by the registration deadline of each session.
- Tuition Assistance Deferment: If you receive tuition assistance from your employer, you may defer tuition for 45 days after the end of the session.
Before you enroll, please be sure to complete a payment options form to indicate your choice.
While we will work with you on making your education affordable, it is important to remember you are responsible for making sure that accounts are paid in a timely manner even if you are receiving financial aid. We have several payment options available to make this more convenient for you.
