Tuition & Fees
TUITION AND ADDITIONAL EXPENSES
Tuition is calculated at $700 per credit hour. The table above illustrates the cost for enrolling in up to nine hours of credits. An enrollment of nine credit-hours is considered full-time. Enrollment in twelve or more credit-hours per semester is considered exceptional and requires approval by the Executive Committee. All courses with the exception of 701-ORP, the Masters Essays or Thesis, and Dissertation are 3-hour courses.
Beginning Students: The only one-credit hour course HU offers is 701-Orientation and Planning. This course is required for all students entering HU's graduate program. Thus, entering students would need to add either $117 (six payments) or $140 (five payments) to the amounts listed for three, six, or nine hours. Most entering students enroll in ORP plus one or two other courses.
Tuition Rate Guarantee
As current and new students enroll in the Fall or 2011, they will be locked in at the new rate for the duration of their HU experience with no further increase in tuition, so long as they remain active or are on official leave.
PAYMENT OF FEES
Fall enrollment and initial tuition payment for current students is completed by August 7th. Spring enrollment and initial payment for current students is completed by February 7th. The tuition fee structure at HU Graduate Seminary provides students with the option of making six monthly payments from August 7th through January 7th and from February 7th through July 7th. Students may pay a lump sum payment on or before August 7th for the Fall Semester and on or before February 7th for the Spring Semester to receive a 3% reduction. Once enrolled, all students are obligated for the entire semester’s tuition. All tuition and additional fee arrangements are made through the Bursar after the students have received the necessary approval through the Registrar and/or the Admissions Committee.
Tuition Payment Options
All students can choose from the following two payment options:
• The tuition may be paid all at once by August 7th or February 7th, in which case a 3% reduction is offered to each student.
• The tuition may be paid in six monthly installments (The initial payment is made in August or February.)
To remain enrolled in good standing, installment tuition payments must be paid the 7th of each month. Those who must be sent a reminder about late payments will be required to arrange for future payments to be made by Credit card or automatic bank draft. Students are returned to good standing only after making all back-payments. No services, instruction, or transcripts will be provided unless a student is in good standing. It is generally more economical to enroll in as many hours as the student can successfully complete in a semester. An enrollment of twelve credit-hours is considered full-time. Enrollment in more than fifteen credit-hours is considered exceptional and requires approval by the Executive Committee.
Leave of AbsenceStudents do not incur any fees during a Leave of Absence. They must be in good standing and must have completed all Incompletes to qualify for a Leave of Absence (LOA). A maximum of four semesters of Leave may be approved.
Leave RegisteredStudents working on Incompletes during a Leave of Absence are considered Leave Registered and are required to pay a $300 per semester enrollment fee. This permits students to complete any outstanding course work, participate in other student activities, and request assistance from their instructors. Students may request either a Leave of Absence or be Leave Registered for a total number of four semesters.
RefundsStudents who withdraw or take a Leave of Absence on or before the semester drop/add date deadline may receive a refund of funds paid to date for semester tuition, less $150 administrative fee. After the semester drop/add date deadline, no refund of tuition is given and the student is responsible for the full tuition for the semester. However, students may get permission from instructors to take an Incomplete and finish the work within the next two semesters.
Continuous EnrollmentOnce a graduate student reaches the thesis or dissertation stage, enrollment in at least three credit hours of thesis or dissertation is required each semester until all the degree requirements are fulfilled.
Special Fees: Students who have already fulfilled ALL the required credit hours for the Thesis or Essays and Exam course (6 credits) and the Dissertation course (12 credits) and who are using continuous enrollment in order to complete the degree, pay only $400 per credit-hour when enrolling for the three credit-hours of Continuous Enrollment a semester.
Initial Application feeGraduate Degrees: $200 (Non-refundable), due by Deadline posted on the HU Website.
Certificate Program: $50 (Non-refundable), due by Deadline posted on the HU Website.
Fees for IncompletesStudents who have been granted an Incomplete by their instructor have one semester to complete the course past the initial semester in which they enrolled in the class. For each subsequent semester, for which the student is granted an Incomplete, a fee of $100 per Incomplete course will be applied.
Late Enrollment FeesStudents are expected to submit their revised Program Schedule Form (PSF) by the Deadline announced on the website Calendar. If the Registrar has not received the PSF by that deadline, a late Enrollment fee of $250 will be charged to the student’s account.
