Institute for Professional Studies Policies

  • A voucher or letter of authorization from a student’s company will allow Business Office to directly bill a student’s employer for the tuition due. An authorization to bill an outside source does not create a credit balance. Students are responsible for the total tuition and other miscellaneous charges even though a third party may pay the university directly or reimburse the student.
  • Deferred payment plans and promissory notes are available to students enrolled in a full semester of classes.
  • Students who register for at least six semester hours may be eligible for financial aid consisting of deferred student loans. All aid applicants must be accepted for admission to the program before an award is made.
  • All charges (tuition, fees, room & board, miscellaneous fees) must be paid in full with a combination of out-of-pocket personal payment, financial aid/scholarships or enrollment in a Deferred Payment Plan by the payment due date for each term announced in the class schedule. This is approximately two weeks before a term starts. If a student has not paid in full for a term with a combination of out-of-pocket personal payment, financial aid/scholarships or Deferred Payment Plan, at the beginning of the term, the student may be assessed a late fee, have a hold placed on their records, and/or be dropped from classes by the university.
  • Students cancellation and withdrawal information can be found on the Academic Calendar 2022-2023  page under full calendar.
  • There is no fee for courses added after registration or changes made as a result of classes canceled by the university.
  • Students are expected to attend all classes for which they are registered. One or two absences are at the discretion of the instructor. More than two absences may result in a grade of “F.”
