Tuition and Fees for Graduate Assistants
Students who elect to withdraw from the University within the first four weeks of a semester, or within the first two weeks of a summer session, may be entitled to a fractional refund of tuition. The conditions of eligibility for refunds are subject to change. The current conditions are described on the University Registrar’s web site on the academic calendar.
Residency Status for Tuition Purposes
Regulations pertaining to resident status for tuition purposes are established by the Board of Regents. Initial determination of resident status is made at the time of admission and is noted on the Certificate of Admission. If a non-resident student wishes to change status, it is necessary to file an application with the Office of Graduate Studies, 1100 Seaton Hall. Download the full information on the requirements for resident status and application form from our Website.
