Payment Policy for All Students

All tuition and fees must be paid at the time of registration. Any outstanding charges from the previous semester will delay course registration until such charges are met. Failure to pay tuition in a timely manner may result in loss of academic credit for that semester. Students anticipating graduation must pay in full all financial obligations to the school at least eight days prior to the date of commencement.

United permits payment by cash, check, Discover Card, Visa or MasterCard. All payments are to be made directly to the Business Office. Inquiries regarding payment and payment options should be directed to the Business Office.

  • Students may pay their tuition for a semester in four monthly installments. Contact the Business Office for details.
  • Charges incurred during the semester/term are due in full upon receipt of written notice from the Business Office and are payable in addition to any deferred payment obligations.
