Tuition and Payment Policies

Please be advised that there has been a significant change in the billing process at Kean University, and this change applies to all students in the Kean School of Nursing RVCC Offsite Program, as well.  
Students will NO LONGER be receiving paper bills for tuition accounts.***  All tuition bills and financial notifications will be processed via KeanWise, so please check your Keanwise account regularly to ensure your tuition account is up to date.  

This change is effective immediately for all students who have yet to be processed for registration.  ***Students who have previously completed registration will still be sent paper billing information (for the Fall 2012 semester, only).  Subsequently, ALL STUDENTS - from this semester forward will be billed via KEANWISE.  You will no longer receive paper bills beyond this upcoming semester.

Please feel free to contact our office if you have any questions:
