Re: Tuition


Please check your tuition payments for February and March, because we have not received payments for February. Make sure your balances are paid by the end of March.

Also, please note on checks the name of the student and the month being paid for to help keep it straight. If you are paying with cash, we have envelopes to put it in, as well as writing the information on the envelope.

Thank you for your patience to make this easier and more efficient.

Also, for those students who do service hours, your hours for this quarter are due at the end of March.
