Tuition is due at the time of registration. After you register, you are sent a registration confirmation with a follow-up email detailing instructions for paying tuition online. You may pay by MasterCard, Discover, or American Express. If you pay by credit card, a 2.75% service fee will be added to each transaction. You may also pay by e-check (electronic check); no service fee is charged.
SMU employees should refer to Human Resources to learn more about using tuition benefits.
