Campbell (which includes your Winter Term class) and Spring main campus classes.
Deferments are possible in certain circumstances but you must contact the APSU Office of Financial Aid to make arrangements. If you fail to confirm you Winter Term class before the payment deadline, you will be dropped (purged for non-payment) from the Winter Term course.
