Tuition and fees are due, in full, prior to the beginning of classes. This financial obligation is a contract between the student and the school. Failure to make payments when due is considered sufficient cause to bar the student from classes, withhold certificate, and suspend the student. Rochester University accepts payment for the full amount due in Cash, Money Orders, or by Personal, Traveler’s or Cashier’s Checks. Students may be eligible for a short-term deferment without finance charge.
