Students are responsible for ensuring that their financial obligations are taken care of at least two weeks before classes start each semester. You may access your detailed billing and financial aid information by logging into Populi.

Payment in full or enrollment in a payment plan is required two weeks before classes start each semester. Failure to pay or enroll in a payment plan by the established due dates will result in a financial hold placed on the student’s account, preventing them from registering for future classes, receiving grades, transcripts, or graduating, and/or the student may be dropped from classes.

Pay Online

Students or parents can pay rent, tuition, or other expenses right now using Populi. Payments may be made with an eCheck that electronically withdraws your payment from a checking or savings account. No additional fee is charged for payments made with an eCheck.

Payments made with a credit or debit card are subject to a service fee. Service fees vary based upon the card presented for payment.

Please note, debit cards are associated with a bank account number and routing number. If you are using a debit card, you can avoid the service fee by choosing the eCheck option and entering your bank account number and routing number.
