Course Registration and Payment
Spertus Institute welcomes course registration from students with accounts in good standing. An account in good standing is defined as:

  • Student's unpaid account balance is less than $2,500 (roughly two courses).
  • The most recent payments on past due balances are within the last six months.

Students who do not meet these criteria will need to pay down their balance prior to registering for additional courses.

Safety and Security

As part of our compliance with regulations mandated for institutions that participate in the Title IV Federal Student Loan Program, Spertus Institute makes a number of policies, reports, and related resources available to our students, faculty, and employees. These include emergency and evacuation procedures, the reporting of crimes and crime statistics, and policies related to sexual harassment, assault, and drug and alcohol abuse. This material is collected in the Annual Security Report, which is sent to students, faculty, and employees and at the end of each year will be posted here and on the Transparency page of the Spertus Institute website.

In addition, it is our pleasure to provide links to other websites that provide important information and prevention tips.
