Tuition Payment Plan

Students must sign up for the Tuition Installment Payment Plan (TIPP) through their MyCI account before the published registration payment due date.  A non-refundable administrative fee of $33 per semester is required for participation in the installment plan.  Payments must be received on or before the due dates.  Bills will not be sent.  Failure to complete your obligation under the terms of the TIPP will prohibit the student from being able to participate in this plan for future semesters.  Any outstanding balance due to the University must be paid prior to applying for the TIPP.  For more information please send an email to
