*Academic Excellence Fee is applicable to all Graduate Nursing Programs.

**Rate for full-time resident continuing students (enrolled prior to academic year 2017-2018).

***Rate for full-time resident students in the cohort entering academic year 2017-2018.

The last date for submitting documentation for a residency status change for tuition billing purposes is the last day of final examinations (see the academic calendar located on the Registrar’s home page).

Matriculated Status

If a student’s matriculation status changes on or after the first day of classes, the lower matriculation tuition charge will not be effective until the next semester’s registration. No refunds will be issued for the semester in which the reclassification occurs. Students who have satisfied their baccalaureate degree requirements (graduated) and wish to take additional credits beyond the degree will automatically be coded non-degree and charged the higher non-degree rate per credit, unless they have filed for a second undergraduate degree in the Registrar’s Office by the last business day before the first day of classes.
