Spring Semester 2016 registration bills (including Wintersession) are available in Cyberbear. Your registration bill must be paid by midnight February 2, 2016 to avoid the $80 Late Registration Fee. If financial aid or other sources are covering all costs of tuition/fees, you must still click the button “Pay Registration Bill” which is located on the online registration bill.  This will flag your registration as being “paid”.

Important Note:  A registration bill not paid by February 15, 2016 will result in the cancellation of classes for non-payment. Pay now to avoid late fees/cancellation! 

SPRING 2016 DEFERRED PAYMENT PLAN (4 installments)
The Deferred Payment Plan is available to students who need to pay tuition, mandatory fees, and room and board in four payments.  Students who are in good financial and academic standing may apply for this payment plan. 
Note:  If you have already applied and been accepted on the plan, there is no need to reapply each semester.  You will remain on the plan continuously, unless you request to be removed. 

Spring 2016 Payment Deadlines

  • First installment due by the registration payment deadline.
  • Second installment due March 1.
  • Third installment due April 1.
  • Fourth and final installment due May 1.

A $15 late fee is assessed on DPP installments not paid by the due dates.

If you pay your Spring Semester 2016 registration bill on or before December 31, 2015, the qualified education expenses for Spring 2016 will be included on your IRS 1098-T form for Tax Year 2015.  If you prefer to have the Spring 2016 expenses reported in Tax Year 2016, you must wait until January 1, 2016 to pay your Spring 2016 registration bill.  Check with your tax professional if you have specific questions regarding tax education credit opportunities and the IRS 1098-T form.

Student 1098-T tuition statements for tax year 2015 are available online in Cyberbear. To access, log into Cyberbear, click on ‘Student Services and Financial Aid’, then ‘Payment and Account Information’ to get to the ‘Tax Notification – 1098T’ link. Paper forms were mailed on January 20th to those students that did not choose to receive them online only.
