Tuition & Fees

Deposit Requirement

In order to secure a place in the program, admitted students must pay a nonrefundable deposit of $500 to the university by the deadline stated in the acceptance letter. The deposit is credited toward the student's tuition upon matriculation. Under no circumstances can the acceptance deposit be waived. Students who fail to submit their deposit by the deadline forfeit their place in the entering class. Students who make deposits but do not enroll on the agreed date lose their deposits.

Tuition and fees are subject to Board of Trustee approval and may change.
