Admission Fees and Deposits*

Beginning with students who apply for entry in January 2020 and beyond, we will no longer charge an application fee for undergraduate degree-seeking enrollment. There will still be an application fee in place for summer session pre-college as well as graduate/MAT entry.

For students entering in fall semester 2020-21, a general obligation deposit of $1,000 is required of both new students and students returning after interrupting college enrollment. This deposit is applied to the first semester invoice. The deposit is forfeited by failure to provide notice of withdrawal by March 1 for the fall semester and November 1 for the spring semester for enrolled students, or after acceptance of admission for new students.
