Paying for Grad School
Graduate Program fees for the 2012-2013 academic year are:
- Graduate application fee, $50
- Graduate registration fee, $100 per course
- Graduate tuition, $1,164 per course
- Audit fee, per course, $339
- Enrollment Deposit (non-refundable), $300
- Graduation fee: $300
Tuition and fees must be paid by the first day of scheduled classes. Any student with outstanding balances at this time will receive an invoice by mail. A late payment fee of $80 will be added to any outstanding balance of $800 or more.*
*A late fee is charged when a student has not paid their account in full or made payment arrangements by the officially posted due date for the current semester; or has defaulted on a payment plan; or has financial aid cancelled, in any manner.
Washington College does not offer College-sponsored graduate financial aid, or federal campus-based funds for graduate study. The only form of financial aid available to graduate students is the federal Stafford loan. The financial aid process for graduate students is predicated upon the precept that students will assume primary responsibility for their educational expenses. Since an education is an investment that should yield lifelong dividends, a student should be prepared to contribute to it both before entering and while in graduate school. Federal loan funds are intended to complement student financial resources and offered only after all other sources of funding have been exhausted. Students must make arrangements for payment of their semester bill by the billing due date. Loan applications will be processed and funds requested and disbursed once 60% of the semester has been completed.
