POLICY ON TUITION AND FEES
Tuition and fees for each semester are payable in
advance. There is a late registration fee of $50,
and a late payment fee of $50 per month beginning
30 days after billing.
A matriculated student may arrange with the Graduate
Student Office to follow a deferred payment plan
1. Payment of all fees plus one-half of the tuition
before or upon registration.
2. Payment of one-quarter of the tuition 30 days
after the registration date and one-quarter 60
days after enrollment.
The fee for the deferred payment plan is $20.
Any student who elects to use the deferred payment
plan and finds it impossible to meet this obligation
must contact the Financial Aid Officer immediately
to make alternative arrangements. No degree will
be awarded to any student until all financial
obligations to the school have been satisfied.
Students who withdraw voluntarily from a course
or from school within one week after registration
or the start of a course will receive a full tuition
refund and the course will not appear on their
Students withdrawing up to three weeks after
the course begins will receive an 80% tuition
refund at the discretion of the Dean or his designee.
No tuition will be refunded beyond 3 weeks after
the course has begun.
Withdrawals beyond the ten calendar days after the course
begins will be noted as W on the official transcript.
Withdrawals generally will NOT be granted during
the final third of a course.
Any student who has been awarded financial aid
may defer payment of tuition and fees until receipt
of such aid. A deferment form must be completed
in the Financial Aid office. Bills become due
and payable immediately when financial aid (including
loans from any source, scholarships, or other
subvention) is received.
A limited number of graduate fellowships and tuition
waivers are available to full-time matriculated
students. These fellowships are based on merit
and students must remain in good academic standing
to be eligible for continued support.
Financial Aid Programs
Financial aid is usually provided by or through
federal and state agencies, foundations, corporations,
and the University. Grants are regarded as "gift"
assistance and need not be repaid, although they
may carry certain provisions. Loans that are offered
can be repaid over an extended period after the
student graduates. Where aid is offered in the
form of a job, the student is paid an hourly rate
for work actually performed.
Financial aid is awarded on the basis of "financial
need" as determined by federal guidelines.
The University expects that students and their
families will contribute to the fullest of their
ability to meet educational expenses. Students
who feel that they will be in need of assistance
should request information and applications from
the University-wide Financial Aid Office as soon
as accepted for admission. Returning students
must plan to meet the specified application deadline,
usually May 1, to receive financial aid the
All students receiving financial aid must maintain
satisfactory academic progress as defined by the
