     Returning International Student Payment Information

    Fall 2015 Payments

    Returning international students must make a minimum of $1700 payment on or before 3th of August 2015. Failing to make the minimum payment will result in a cancellation of all your fall 2015 registered courses. If you already registered and need to modify your fall 2015 schedule, a hold is placed on your account preventing you from modifying your course schedule. Make sure you have informed your family or sponsor of the payment information so they can make necessary arrangements to send you the funds to make the payment. All international students must be registered for 12 or more credits if you are an undergraduate student and 8 credits if you are a graduate student. For more information please read the Fall Payment Information Handout.
