Application Fee and Reservation Deposit

When you apply, a $50 (nonrefundable and nontransferable) Application Fee must accompany your application. During the application process, you’ll also be asked to pay the Reservation Deposit, which is nonrefundable and nontransferable unless the applicant initiates cancellation and submits a written refund request within three working days of the payment and before classes begin. The Reservation Deposit will be credited to the student’s account on the Sept. 28, 2020/Feb. 22, 2021 statement. The date the Reservation Deposit is paid determines the amount paid (see below).

Reservation Deposit 2020–2021
$125 on or before June 30 | on or before December 31
$125 + $25 late fee July 1–August 20 | January 1–14
Tuition

The $3,420 tuition per semester allows you to register for up to 17 semester hours without an overload charge. Additional hours above 17 are charged at the rate of $228 per hour for credit or $114 per hour to audit. Part-time students (taking 11 hours or fewer per semester) are charged at the rate of $285 per hour for credit or $142.50 per hour to audit. Residence hall students are expected to take a minimum of 12 semester hours. In the rare event that a residence hall student is granted permission to take fewer than 12 hours, he is still classified as full-time financially as well as academically. Tuition covers fees for library access, Fine Arts Series, athletic events, yearbook, and collegian and class dues.

Health Services Fee

Resident students will be charged a health services fee of $150 per semester which covers the cost of on-site medical appointments and transportation to off-site medical appointments when needed. Non-resident students needing to see the medical doctor may do so for a fee of $15 per visit. Resident and non-resident students who incur fees for on-campus labs, diagnostic testing, and pharmaceuticals will have these charges applied to their account at the time of service. After-hours health needs and serious illnesses or injuries are referred to off-campus medical facilities associated with one of three hospitals in the area.

Security Deposit

Each new undergraduate and Academy student is required to place a $50 Security Deposit for unpaid breakage costs, property damage, or account charges. The Security Deposit will be applied to the student’s account after the termination of enrollment to cover any outstanding balance, and then the remainder will be refunded.

Academic Program Fee

The Academic Program Fee is paid with the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th payments each semester. This fee varies from one program of study to another. Some majors require courses that use special facilities or equipment, and the fee reflects that usage. Academic Program Fee charges are assessed according to the declared major at the end of the drop/add period and are listed in the catalog with each major. Part-time students pay a prorated fee based on the number of credits taken. Students with a double major pay the larger program fee plus half of the smaller. Students with an undeclared major pay a fee of $25 per semester (3 payments of $8.33).

Music Course Fees

Music course fees underwrite the cost for personalized music instruction and are paid by all who take the following courses:

Private Lessons $175–$350
Group Instruction $87.50–$175
(brass, harp, hymnplaying, percussion, piano, strings, voice, woodwind)
