ABSN Program

Tuition Deposit & Financial Aid

In order to reserve your place in the upcoming cohort, you are required to pay a $200 tuition deposit. Please check with your success coach for tuition deposit deadlines. This deposit informs us of your intention to start the program. 

There are three ways to pay this deposit:
  1. Attach a check to the tuition deposit card that you will receive in the mail.
  2. Attach your credit card information to the tuition deposit card that you will receive in the mail.
  3. Pay online using our secure payment site at: utica.edu/payment. If you elect to pay online, please select tuition deposit as the payment type and make sure to enter your Banner ID during the process.
  4. Call your financial aid counselor (contact information below) and make payment over the phone.
Those students that do not pay their deposit by the deadline will be dropped from the acceptance queue and rolled to the next admissions cycle.

Your First Steps

After paying your $200 tuition deposit, please visit utica.edu/firststeps and accomplish Step #1 and Step #2. Make sure to write down your Banner ID and your Student Financial Services password, you will need both to continue.

Once complete, come back to this page and review the remaining steps below.
