Tuition, Fees, and Payments
The 2016–2017 tuition and fees are estimated. Tuition and fees are prescribed by statute and are subject to change at the discretion of the Trustees.
University charges such as tuition, fees, and residence hall and meal plans are billed in the first Student Account Statement of the term, which is sent out in July and December of each year for the upcoming term. This account is payable and due in full on or before the payment due date announced in the Statement, typically at the end of August or early January before the beginning of the billed term. Any student who does not receive the first Student Account Statement is expected to pay at registration.
If the University does not receive the full amount due for the term on or before the payment due date of the first Statement, a late payment charge of $150 will be assessed. An additional charge of 1 percent per billing cycle may be imposed on any amount past due thereafter.
Students with an overdue account balance may be prohibited from registering, changing programs, or obtaining a diploma or transcripts. In the case of persistently delinquent accounts, the University may utilize the services of an attorney and/or collection agent to collect any amount past due. If a student’s account is referred for collection, the student may be charged an additional amount equal to the cost of collection, including reasonable attorney’s fees and expenses incurred by the University.
Graduate students enrolled in M.S. and Eng.Sc.D. programs pay $1,858 per credit, except when a special fee is fixed. Graduate tuition for Ph.D. students is $21,772 per Residence Unit. The Residence Unit, full-time registration for one semester rather than for individual courses (whether or not the student is taking courses), provides the basis for tuition charges. Ph.D. students should consult the bulletin for the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
