Matriculation Fee

$200 to secure your roommate, hall choice and classes

All accepted applicants are required to submit a $200 matriculation fee ($150 toward tuition and $50 housing deposit) in order to secure the student's place in the student body and begin the housing and registration processes.

All new students are required to live on campus unless they are commuting from their parents' home. The matriculation fee deadline for fall admission is May 1.  A new or readmitted student who cancels prior to May 1 will receive a full refund.

Options for payment


You are welcome to pay the matriculation fee online with credit card.


If paying by check, please include the student’s name on the check memo and mail it to:
