Status and Payment Information:

Students are responsible for full-time tuition for all semesters in which they are enrolled and completing required didactic or clinical course work, including summers. Tuition for entry-level students is assessed for each semester of required study (including summers) on a flat-rate basis.  If a student is permitted to take fewer than the number of semester credit hours prescribed by the curriculum for a given term, he/she will be required to pay the full semester’s tuition. 

No entry-level student will be allowed to pay tuition on a per-credit-hour basis without the written permission of the Assistant /Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.  Only in unusual circumstances will part-time status be approved by the Assistant/Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, which allows the student to pay tuition on a per-credit-hour basis.
