Reactivation Fee

  • Students who require access to their courses after 24 months of registering or who withdraw and then return may be charged a reactivation fee.

Tuition Payment Plan Details

  • Your monthly tuition amount and the total number of payments is determined by the payment plan selected at registration.
  • The registration fee and the first monthly tuition payment are due when you register as a Distance Education student in the First-Year Program.
  • Your credit card will then be automatically charged on the same day of the month as the registration date for each corresponding month (or on final date of month if there is no corresponding date).
  • You will receive an email notification after the payment is processed.
  • In the event your tuition payment has been suspended by the student or cannot be processed, the additional courses made available for enrollment will be suspended. Once a single monthly payment is made, courses made available for enrollment will resume.

Managing Your Payments

From your student account dashboard, you may:

  • change the payment method (credit/debit card used).
  • suspend your payments. This will suspend your payment for a single month. Note that this will also suspend additional courses being made available.
  • withdraw from Distance Education. First suspend your payments and then contact Distance Education within the 30-day payment suspension period to complete your withdrawal request. Please refer to withdraw and refund policies.

Note: Any payment plan changes, or suspended payments do not change the promotion requirement of completing all first-year courses within 24 months of your first course enrollment.
