Please review the following important information:

Enrollment Deposit
All accepted students must submit an enrollment deposit of $100, unless otherwise indicated in your acceptance letter/notice to approved applicants. International students studying on campus are required to submit a total of $2,000 USD in order to issue an I-20 (students will not be able to enroll until their deposit is submitted). International distance students have a $100 deposit. The deposit is not a fee. The funds stay in your account until you graduate or leave the university. At that time it will be refunded or credited toward your school bill. However, if you do not attend after submitting your deposit, it is non-refundable.
