TUITION & SCHOLARSHIPS
Tuition for the on-campus Organizational Ethics and Compliance program in the 2017-18 academic year is $1,360 per credit. Students enrolled in 6 or more credits a semester will be assessed a technology fee of $111/semester and a student activity fee of $77.50/semester. The technology fee is reduced to $55/semester if enrolled in less than 6 credits.
For students beginning spring 2018 or after, the School of Law in partnership with the Opus College of Business will match the amount of tuition reimbursement you receive from your employer up to the cost of your tuition in the semester. There is a capped amount that the St. Thomas scholarship will match over the course of your program of $4,000. To be eligible for this award, you must submit written notification that you intend to participate in the match program no later than 6 weeks after starting the first course within the program. The scholarship funds from St. Thomas will be applied to your St. Thomas student account/bill in the Business Office after one of the following occurs:
1) You provide documentation of the date and amount your employer paid you for tuition. This documentation must be sent to Office of Admissions at email@example.com. Once the necessary documentation is received the appropriate scholarship amount will be calculated and applied to your student account/bill in the business office (not to exceed tuition expenses in that semester and not to exceed the cap amount for the scholarship program); or,
2) The actual payment is sent on your behalf to the Business Office directly from your employer. Once this is confirmed, the appropriate scholarship amount will be calculated and applied to your student account/bill in the business office (not to exceed tuition expenses in that semester and not to exceed the cap amount for the scholarship program).
Since in most cases the reimbursement from an employer and the scholarship funds provided by St. Thomas are received and/or applied after the semester, students are encouraged to contact the Business Office at (651) 962-6600 or firstname.lastname@example.org and discuss the “End of Term Payment Plan.” The End of Term Payment plan is available for students who will receive more than 50% of their tuition reimbursed by their employer. This plan allows you to pay your semester balance up to 60 days after the semester has ended and not be considered delinquent and with no inconveniences of registration or transcript holds. You will, however, incur a 1.1% finance charge by the Business Office each month on the outstanding balance for the convenience of delaying the payment of your charges. More details on the End of Term Payment Plan can be found here.
