Graduate students must enroll in the semester in which they graduate. If they have completed required course work, thesis, and dissertation credits, they must enroll in “Graduate Exam.”
Students whose fees are paid by a third party sponsor will be assessed an annual charge of $500. Students who receive partial or full financial support from their home country government or an international organization require more staff time and resources than students who are self-funded.
The revenue generated from this fee will significantly strengthen the support infrastructure for sponsored students. The result will be improved services, for example, the various requests from the sponsor and the students will be processed more quickly, special field trips will be arranged for the students, and extra individual advising on academic and personal issues will be provided. The result is an enhanced and positive improvement to the students’ overall experience.
Graduate Students must pay a fee for the binding and microfilming of their thesis and dissertation
