Yes, typically you pay per semester. If a school’s annual tuition is $5000, you’d pay $2500 in the fall and $2500 in the spring. At most schools, tuition is due in full on the first day of classes… sometimes even sooner than that. Some schools will allow you to defer some of your payment, but only for a few weeks at the most.

Financial aid might also cover some of it, if your income is low enough to qualify and you file a FAFSA.
