Tuition & Fees

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.
