2010-2011 Graduate & Professional Studies Catalog 
2010-2011 Graduate & Professional Studies Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]



Modest increases in tuition and fees may be expected each year.

The tuition for Fall 2010-Spring 2011 is $375 per credit hour. A late registration fee of $35.00 will be charged to those graduate students completing their registration on or after the first day of class.

Tuition and fees must be paid in full before the first class session. An additional charge (late payment penalty) of $50.00 per month will be added if payment is not received in the Bursar’s Office located in Elderdice Hall, 410/857-2208 or 410/857-2210, by the first class. The proceeds of a Stafford Loan or Supplemental Loan are exempt from the late payment penalty provided a completed application is received in the Financial Aid Office located in Elderdice Hall, 410/857-2233, at least three weeks prior to the first day of class. Checks should be made payable to McDaniel College.

A McDaniel College Graduate Tuition Contract Payment Plan is available during the Fall and Spring semesters for students desiring monthly payment arrangements. Applications can be obtained through the college website or by contacting the Bursar’s office. Due to the brevity of the summer sessions, a payment plan is not offered. Payment in full is required by the first class.

Financial obligations must be met in order for students to be permitted to enter class, enroll in a subsequent course, graduate, or request transcripts. Students who have not fulfilled payment obligations will be automatically withdrawn from current courses and blocked from future registrations until payment obligations are met. Additionally, the student is responsible for attorney’s fees and other costs necessary for the collection of any amount due.

Tuition Refund Policy


It is assumed a student will not withdraw from the College during a semester. Failure to attend classes or to pay a billing statement does not constitute official withdrawal. The effective date of withdrawal is the date of receipt in the Registrar’s Office of written notification from the student.

Tuition refunds are based on the amount of time that has elapsed since the start of class. At any point after the start of the class, the following refund policy will prevail:

  Percent of Amount of tuition  
  class time elapsed to be refunded  
  7 percent 80 percent  
  13 percent 60 percent  
  20 percent 40 percent  
  27 percent 20 percent  

After 27 percent of class time, there will be no refund of tuition.

Should a credit balance be generated due to a reduction in tuition or other charges when a student withdraws, policies regarding refunds to federal aid programs will take precedence. Any remaining credit balance will be mailed to the student within 2-3 weeks of the effective date of withdrawal.

Veterans Administration Benefits


Veterans or their dependents who are eligible for veterans’ educational benefits should contact the Registrar’s Office for information regarding V.A. certification. Veterans Administration regulations require students receiving benefits to enroll in courses that lead to a degree or certificate and to maintain satisfactory progress.

Monthly allowances, paid directly by the Veterans Administration to the veteran, are based on the student’s total credit hours per semester. Student tuition and fees are paid to McDaniel College by the student.
