Programs with Tuition and Mandatory Fees vs. Fee-Based Programs

What are Programs with Tuition and Mandatory Fees?

These are traditional degree-seeking programs.  Students are billed for tuition based on the number of credits taken.  Additional mandatory fees are charged for student services.  A full description of fees can be found here.

What are Fee-Based Programs?

Fee-based programs charge a comprehensive program fee. They do not have separate tuition and fees.  Students are billed for their comprehensive program fee based on the number of credits taken.

Fee-based programs are typically entrepreneurial or industry-specific.  Many certificate programs charge a comprehensive program fee.

Students with Tuition Waivers

Tuition waivers are specifically intended to waive tuitionFull details on waivers can be found here.

Programs with Tuition and Mandatory Fees

Tuition waivers only waive the tuition charge for Programs with Tuition and Mandatory Fees.  Tuition waivers do not waive mandatory fees.  Mandatory fees will remain due even after tuition is waived.

Fee-Based Programs

For Fee-Based Programs that do not charge standard tuition amounts, the amount of tuition waived is based upon the in-state per credit graduate tuition rate, which may not cover the full cost of the semester program fees.  A balance may remain if a student with a tuition waiver is enrolled in a fee-based program.   Additionally, not all waivers qualify for fee-based programs.

Please contact with additional questions.

Additional Information

Failure to Pay Your Bill on Time

Hold Policy 

Students with outstanding balances of greater than $10.00 on their fee bills will have an “Academic Transcript Restricted” (TRN) hold placed on their accounts. This hold will not allow students to request their official academic transcript from the Office of the Registrar. 

Students with outstanding balances of greater than $300.00 will have a "Bursar hold" (ANT or ALL hold) placed on their accounts. Bursar holds prevent students from accessing services such as class registration, recreation services, library services, parking services, transcripts and other important services. Note, the University does not restrict access to dining services or housing. 

All students are billed by e-mail notification only. Failing to receive an e-mail bill notification does not absolve the student of the responsibility of payment by the due date. Students have 24/7 access to view any term fee bill through accessing their student account. 

Please note the following on how to remove a hold: 

Enrollment holdsare automatically removed every 15 minutes once the student pays their past-due balance. 

Administrative holdsare not automatically removed by the system. Students who pay their past-due balance must contact the Office of the Bursar to have an administrative hold removed manually. If payment is made by personal check or e-check, the Office of the Bursar must wait 7 business days to ensure the check has cleared before lifting an administrative hold. The hold can be released sooner if the student provides additional backup showing that the check has cleared. 

Late Fee Policy 

A late payment fee of $150 is payable by all students whose tuition and fees are not paid in full on the published fee bill due date. If after Day 10 of the semester, your bill remains unpaid you will be assessed a second $150 late fee. Checks returned by the bank for any reason are considered a late payment. Additionally, students will have services such as class registration denied if all fees have not been paid by the due date. 

**Please note: If you enroll in courses after the established due date- payments are due within 10 calendar days. 

Returned Check Policy 

Checks returned by the bank for any reason will be removed from the account and late fees will apply. There is a $30 charge for any returned check.
