Hi everyone. I was wondering if you could help me out with a question I had. At SCO, do you have to pay your full semester tuition at the time of registration, or can you pay the tuition in installments? And one more thing, are all need-based financial aid dependent on your parent's income? My dad makes enough money so I'm not a typical "need-based" applicant, but it costs alot to pay for optometry school and I really wanted to find ways to get money for it on my own (without private loans). Thanks everyone... I appreciate your help.
