How to join the Class of 2014

With May 1st around the corner, I want to make sure you're aware of a few things.

1. You are not officially part of the Class of 2014 until you hit the accept button and pay your tuition deposit. Hitting the accept button without paying the deposit will put you in a little limbo zone where you are deemed to be intending on depositing.

2. You have to turn off your pop-up blocker to pay your deposit.

3. Deposits are made online. The system is an e-check system (you'll have to type in the routing and account numbers on your check, just as you do on your tax return if you get a refund). You can use a credit card, but the fee will be passed onto you and the system will not take Visa cards.

4. If you have any technical problems, call (434) 924-HELP or email Do not post a comment here...I don't have any access to the e-check system. My response will be to call 4-HELP.

Hope that helps! Good luck with those final decisions!
