Payment Policies

Due Dates

  • Tuition charges are considered due on the first day of class.
  • Fees are due on the date that they are charged to a student’s account.

Past Due Balances

  • A charge is considered “past due” once the due date for the tuition or fee charge passes and the charge remains unpaid.
  • A student with a charge that is past due by more than 30 days will not be able to register for classes, receive transcripts, receive a diploma, or receive a letter of recommendation.
  • Students who have significantly past due charges (more than one term old) on their account may be referred to internal or external collections.
  • If a student has a balance that is past due, the student will still be able to attend the classes in which he or she is currently enrolled. APU will not drop a graduate student from an ongoing class due to a past due tuition balance. However, students should note that they will not be able to enroll in future classes or receive transcripts until any past due charges have been paid in full.

Payment Plans

At this time, APU does not offer graduate students the option of enrolling in a pre-established payment plan. Students who are not able to pay in full at the time of registration should apply for private student loans to facilitate the structuring of payment for schooling expenses over a length of time.

Statements

Students with an outstanding balance will receive a monthly email from CASHNet directing them to view their balance online.
