New Student Fee

Freshman Students

Freshman students enrolling for the first time are charged a $300 New Student Fee. This fee covers costs associated with orientation including preparation, materials, overnight accommodations, publications, catered meals, and parking. The fee also covers the Preamble as well as new student programs offered throughout the school year. The mandatory, one-time fee is assessed regardless of enrollment or orientation attendance and is nonrefundable. The fee will appear on your student account upon registration for classes.

Transfer Students

Transfer students enrolling for the first time are charged a $225 New Student Fee. This fee covers costs associated with orientation including preparation, materials, publications, catered meals, and parking. The fee also covers the Preamble as well as new student programs offered throughout the school year. The mandatory, one-time fee is assessed regardless of enrollment or orientation attendance and is nonrefundable. The fee will appear on your student account upon registration for classes.

Fee Waiver Request

If serious financial hardship is making it difficult for you to pay the New Student Fee, you may be eligible for a fee waiver. To be eligible, your FAFSA results or Student Aid Report (SAR) must indicate that you may be eligible for a Federal Pell Grant. Requests are submitted during orientation registration and are processed through the Office of Financial Aid. If approved for a waiver, you will also receive a waiver code for orientation guest fees (up to two guests maximum). Do not submit orientation guest payment information until after you receive approval or denial of your waiver request. We will not reimburse guest payments for orientation.
