Payment Options & Dates

Obligation to Pay Tuition, Required Fees, Other Fees and Charges for Optional Services

By registering for classes, students agree to pay all tuition and required fees associated with their registration, optional services and other fees, whether paying in full or utilizing the installment payment option. Failure to pay tuition, fees or other charges may result in penalties, late registration fees and/or possible cancellation.  If your registration schedule is canceled due to non-payment, a $100 reinstatement fee will be charged to re-enroll.  Unpaid tuition, fees, and other charges are subject to Tarleton State University's collection policy and the student will be responsible for all expenses incurred to collect the account.

Notice to All Students

In an effort to reduce processing costs, Tarleton State University will begin processing paper checks electronically effective July 23, 2008.  If you deliver a check in-person or mail it to the University, your paper check will be converted to an electronic Automated Clearing House (ACH) transaction.  For your reconciliation purposes, these checks will now appear on your monthly bank statement as an Electronic Debit.
