Tuition Policies

Tuition, Fees and Other Charges Notice
The Board of Trustees approves tuition rates and fees annually, and new rates and fees ordinarily become effective at the beginning of the summer term. However, tuition and fees are subject to change without prior notice. The university makes every effort to keep costs to students at the lowest level consistent with its commitment to the highest quality educational preparation for professional practice.

Payment of Tuition and Fees
Students are personally responsible for meeting their financial obligations to the university. Payment of tuition and fees is due on or before the first day of the term. Interest begins accruing on the first day of the term, however, a grace period is granted until the last business day of the first month of the term in order to make satisfactory payment arrangements with the office of financial services. On the last business day of the first month of the term, a full month’s interest at 18 percent per annum will be assessed on the entire unpaid balance. Interest will continue to accrue each subsequent month where a balance remains.

Failure to resolve tuition and fee payment arrangements with the office of financial services by the end of the first month of the term may result in prohibition from attending class. For a nominal fee, students have the option of a deferred payment plan whereby tuition and fees may be paid in no more than three installments over the course of the quarter. Deferred payment plans will only be accepted and approved by the office of financial services during the first month of the term. Any past due debt to the university of any of its departments or auxiliary services is grounds for immediate termination of campus priviledges regularly granted to students or alumni.

Account balances outstanding for more than 90 days without payment may be referred to outside collection and may be reported to a credit reporting agency. In addition to all outstanding charges to the university, student financial responsibility also includes fees incurred for collecting the debt. Any account referred to a collection agency will continue to be assessed monthly interest at 18 percent per annum and collection fees at an effective rate of 33.3 percent of the principal balance for which the student is responsible. The student is also responsible for any attorney, court and legal fees incurred in collection of the delinquent account balance. If the account has been assigned to a collection agency, UWS cannot accept payments on the account. Therefore, students wishing to make payment on outstanding debts to UWS will need to contact the agency responsible for collection of the debt directly. Payment in full must be made to the collection agency, and registration and/or release of transcripts will be restricted until UWS receives the funds in full from the collection agency.

Tuition and Fee Refunds
Students withdrawing from school during the term may be eligible for a pro rata refund of tuition and fees during the first 60% of each enrollment period. A student’s last day of enrollment, for refund purposes, will be the day on which the student submits a completed leave of absence or withdrawal form to the office of the registrar. The pro rata refund calculation is based upon the number of calendar days that have elapsed from the student’s last day of enrollment divided by the total number of calendar days in the quarter in which a withdrawal or leave of absence is initiated.

The student is responsible for any unpaid tuition and fee charges due to the university, and where applicable, federal regulations determine the portion of federal student aid funds that must be returned to the lender or program in cases of withdrawal and/or leaves of absence. The student must repay to UWS all federal student aid returned on his or her behalf in accordance with federal regulations as determined by the U.S. Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid programs.

Please refer to the Impact of Withdrawals and Leaves of Absence on financial aid section in the financial aid portion of the UWS catalog for more information on federally-mandated requirements on returning federal student aid funds.
