Billing and Payment

Term Tuition and Fee Due Dates

  • Fall Tuition and Fees are due the first business day in August
  • Spring Tuition and Fees are due the first business day in January
  • For Summer and Continuing Studies classes, please check with the School for Professional and Continuing Studies (SPCS)
  • For Low-residency and MPS programs, please check with Graduate Studies

Any balance not paid in full by the Tuition and Fees due date for a term is subject to a 2.5% Late Payment Fee. Delinquent accounts will have registration and service holds placed that will prevent the student from receiving transcripts, enrolling in classes, receiving a diploma and participating in the housing lottery. Enrollment and registration are contingent upon tuition and fees being paid in full by their due date. Enrollment and registration may be canceled for any student with a delinquent account.

MICA Student Accounts office and Financial Aid office are available to support students and families with varying financial circumstances. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Billing

Bills for degree programs are sent to currently enrolled students via email on a monthly basis. For security and privacy, these can only be sent to a student's MICA.edu email address.

If you would like to request a hard copy sent to your permanent address, please email studentaccounts@mica.edu. You must make a new request each time you would like a hard copy to be sent. We cannot automatically mail hard copies.
