Pay Your Bill

Pay your bill online with ePay

Tuition and fees are due on or prior to each terms due date. You must be in paid status in order to secure your term registration. There are three ways to achieve PAID STATUS: Pay the billed charges in full, enroll in a payment plan through ePay, or have enough aid in process to cover your semester charges. Due dates for each terms tuition can be found on our Academic Calendar:

If you need assistance with establishing a payment plan or verifying PAID STATUS, you may contact the Business Office at 614-823-1151 or email
