What is the delayed payment contract?

The delayed payment contract delays your tuition 45 days after the class ends, so you do not have to pay tuition up front.  The 45-day time frame after class allows you time to submit your grade and invoice back to GEICO so payment can be issued.

What is the cost per course?

With the GEICO grant, the cost per three-credit undergraduate class is $1,114.00 for the 2020/2021 academic year.

What is my out-of-pocket expense?

If you are approved for GEICO tuition reimbursement, you will only have to pay for the books up front. GEICO will reimburse tuition and your book expense when the class ends, as long as you meet the tuition reimbursement requirements. Your tuition payment will be delayed for 45 days after class ends, with the delayed payment contract.

When do classes start?

We have five, eight-week sessions, and one six-week session. Check out our schedule for the list of each start date!

Can I take classes before my transcripts come in?

Yes, you are able to take up to 30 credits (10 classes) while transcripts come in for students wanting to seek a degree. For students that are non-degree seeking, no transcripts required.

How many classes can I take per session?

Two undergraduate classes are considered full-time in an eight-week session and one class is part-time.
