Students may (choose) to use paid tuition towards covering the tuition of the next available UPCES full semester (Spring 2023) by informing the UPCES Director per email. Any student opting to defer their participation and leave fully paid tuition on deposit will be protected against any price increase that might otherwise be applicable to Spring 2023.
