Q: Will I be able to use my financial aid to pay the deposit?
A: No, financial aid cannot be use to pay the deposit.
Q: What if I do not pay my deposit by May1?
A. It is important that you make every effort to pay this fee before May 1 so that you are given an earlier date for advisement and registration. Classes fill up quickly and you want to receive the a schedule of the right classes at the right times. Those who pay after May 1 will be given a later date for advisement and registration, and may therefore find that many key classes and times are no longer available.
