Tuition and Fees


Tuition is billed on a semester basis. Students unable to complete payment of a full semester's tuition may choose a monthly payment plan.

Payment Plan Options
A deferred payment plan for tuition charges is available. This plan gives you the option to pay for all or a portion of your tuition and fees in monthly installments. Further information will be provided with the tuition bill.

Withdrawals and Refunds
If a student withdraws after payment of the tuition and fees, the School will retain 10 percent of the semester tuition fee for each week, up to and including the sixth week. There will be no refunds for withdrawals after the sixth week. The date of withdrawal will be the date on which the Pre-College Administration is notified in writing.
