Visiting Non-Degree Status

Tuition, Fees, and Financial Aid

Tuition 
Students who take courses through the visiting non-degree status pay the same rate as the degree students enrolled in the course. For example, a visiting non-degree student enrolled in a graduate course through the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences will pay the standard Graduate School part-time credit rate, which for the 2016-2017 Academic Year is $1,928 per credit hour. Similarly, a visiting non-degree student enrolled in a graduate course through the School of Continuing Studies would pay the standard SCS tuition, which is $1,263 per credit hour for most programs for the 2017-2018 Academic Year. Please note, tuition is subject to change and may vary by course of study. For the most current tuition rates, please consult the Tuition and Fees page and select the appropriate School and level of study. 
 
Fees
Visiting non-degree students will be assessed a one-time transcript fee of $25. This amount is current as of the 2017-2018 Academic Year, but it may increase in future years.
 
Financial Aid
Financial aid is not available for visiting non-degree students. For more information please contact the Office of Student Financial Services.
 
Payment
You will be able to check your bill online through MyAccess. Once you are notified that you have been officially registered for a course, a bill will be generated. Unless you drop or withdraw in writing through the Registrar's Office by the official drop or withdrawal deadline, you will be responsible for the tuition charges for your course(s).   
 
Refunds
