Deferrals and Exemptions

The $200 advance tuition deposit (ATD) confirms your intention to enroll and is applicable toward your fall term tuition. You may qualify for a deferral or an exemption to the ATD.


You may request deferred payment of the advance tuition deposit only if you applied for financial aid by using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). We will respond after we verify that your financial application has been received by the university. If you qualify for a deferment, check the appropriate box on either the online or paper version of the Intent to Register form.


A student awarded one of the scholarships listed below is exempt from paying the advance tuition deposit. If you have been awarded one of these scholarships, indicate on either the paper or online version of the ITR form that you are exempt from paying the deposit and list the scholarship you have been awarded. Note that these scholarships will be awarded in March.

  • Presidential Scholarship
  • Diversity Excellence Scholarship
  • Stamps Scholarship
  • Staton Scholarship
