COP Annual Tuition, Fees & Costs for 2023-2024

The purpose of this policy is to provide information regarding tuition, fees, and other costs for students in the College of Pharmacy. Listed on the following chart are the 2023-2024 annual tuition and fees paid directly to the University, and additional estimated costs that students are required to pay to others. Estimated tuition, fees, and other required costs for subsequent years of the four-year program are also included in the chart. The total annual estimates for living expenses (room and board and personal expenses) may not reflect a student’s total financial responsibilities. The University reserves the right to change institutional tuition, fees, and costs at any time with prior notice. Non-institutional costs are controlled by third parties, not the University.

Tuition is charged on a full-time, semester basis, except during the fourth program year in which tuition is charged on a full-time, annual basis. Generally, tuition and fees are charged to a student’s account thirty (30) days prior to the start of each semester term. The above is based on the assumption that a student will attend each semester term on a full-time basis, which allows for a student to graduate after successfully completing four (4) years of coursework of the degree.

Right to Cancel

A student has the right to cancel their enrollment agreement and obtain a refund of all charges paid through attendance at the first class session or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later, less the maximum nonrefundable two-hundred and fifty dollar ($250) seat deposit. Students who wish to cancel their enrollment agreement must notify the applicable College’s Office of Admissions of the cancellation by email, mail, or in person. If a student obtains a loan to pay for an educational program, the student will have to repay the full amount of the loan plus interest, less the amount of any refund. If the student receives federal student financial aid funds, the student is entitled to a refund of the monies not paid from federal financial aid funds.

Payment deadlines, loan obligations, refund calculations due to cancellation or withdrawal, and the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) disclosures are located in the Financial Services section of this catalog.
