If you register before this date, your balance will not post immediately, and you will not be able to pay your tuition right away.

For Summer 2019, balances will begin to post on approximately May 20, 2019. For registrations completed after this date, the balance should post immediately or within 24 business hours. Your tuition payment is due by the Summer 2019 census date - June 17, 2019.
