Graduate students are classified full-time if they carry nine (9) or more credits in a regular semester, in which case mandatory fees will apply. Please see the current Graduate Bulletin for more information on fees.

Tuition per credit is subject to change each academic year. The current 2017-2018 Academic Year tuition is $1826 per credit. This is a $402 savings over the regular Graduate School cost for a 3 credit course. Contact the MALS office for information on MALS tuition charges.

Tuition may be paid at the Student Account Services Office located in the Ashe Building, on-line using CaneLink, or by mail. Payment after 5:00 p.m. can be done by using the drop box located at the cashiers’ desk in the Ashe Building (to the right of the stairs).

Students may also set up a monthly payment plan by contacting Student Accounts.


Timely payment or payment arrangement is required by Student Account Services. The Office of Student Account Services is located on the first floor of the Ashe Building. Students who are cancelled for nonpayment are required to pay a reinstatement fee of $100.


An insurance fee is required of all new and transfer domestic degree seeking students enrolled in six or more credit hours per semester, as well as all international students. The fee is automatically charged each year. Students with comparable insurance coverage may request a waiver by completing an Insurance Waiver form that is available from the Student Health Center.

Students must meet deadlines as specified by the Health Center in order to receive approval of a waiver. All inquiries should be directed to Student Health Services.
