Summer 2013 Important Payment Deadlines:
Pay for your classes by May 17, 2013 to avoid late fees and dropped classes. Classes will be dropped for non-payment on the afternoon of May 17, 2013, for any students who have not satisfied the payment requirements, either privately or with Financial Aid, by that date. If you have questions about whether you may be dropped, contact the Bursar's office or the Office of Financial Aid. All classes for which you have registered must be paid for by that deadline, regardless of which summer session the class meets in, so be sure you are prepared to pay for all the courses for which you've pre-registered. Classes added after that date must be paid for the same day you register, and could be subject to late fees. Be sure to consider signing up for a pre-payment plan with Nelnet. Deadline is April 30, 2013.
