Student Financing International students are required by law to financially support all expenses associated with studying in the United States. You are classified as an International student if you hold citizenship in a country other than the United States and/or possess a temporary visa. Non-resident Aliens A Non-resident Alien is a person who is not a citizen or national of the United States, who is in this country on a temporary basis, and who does not have the right to remain indefinitely. As stated in the University Catalog, international students are required by law to financially support all expenses associated with studying in the United States. Payment is due by the end of the first week of the academic period. Tuition deferment is not an option for non-resident alien students. If payment is not received by the tuition due date, non-resident students will automatically be dropped for non-payment. As a courtesy, tuition due date reminders will be sent to the student's Regis email prior to the dues dates. Permanent Residents or Resident Aliens A Permanent Resident or Resident Alien is not a citizen or national of the United States, but has been lawfully admitted for permanent residency (and holds an alien registration receipt card). Permanent resident students are eligible for the regular payment options offered. Payment Policy for International Students International students are allowed to register but must pay by the tuition due date. If tuition is not paid, international students are automatically dropped. Due date email reminders are sent to international students as a courtesy.
