Costs and Payment

You must pay for your orientation session when you register. You will be instructed to go to What I Owe to make your payment. You may pay by American Express, MasterCard, Discover, Visa or via eCheck.

The orientation charge may be automatically deferred for students who qualify based on financial need. If you receive a financial aid award, your payment will be deducted from your award. If your award does not have sufficient funds, you will have until the first day of classes to complete the payment.  You will see a notification in the registration system if your charge has been deferred.

While orientation fees may be deferred to a later date, the costs are not waived.  An Admissions waiver does not automatically qualify you for an orientation registration deferment.

Cancellations and Refunds

Orientation space is limited, so it is important to try to attend the session you sign up to participate in. However, if you are unable to participate in your scheduled session, you must cancel at least 10 calendar days in advance to receive a refund (at least six days for Spring and Summer School Orientation).

Please note that if you cancel your orientation session, a $25 non-refundable charge will be assessed, which will be deducted from your refund amount if you have already paid for your session. You will receive a refund check in the mail within two to four weeks of cancellation. If you do not cancel by the required deadline, you will not receive a refund.

If you register to attend a June or July orientation and fail to attend (no show), the fees are non-refundable and can only be transferred to an August Orientation session. 

*You must register to attend August Orientation if you do not attend orientation in June or July. There are no cancellations or refunds for August Orientation. All students, including deferred, are responsible for any outstanding orientation charges.
