|Student Health Insurance||TBD|
Explanation of Costs
Upon acceptance to the degree program, students make a $400 deposit that will reserve their place in the class and is credited toward the first-semester tuition. This deposit is non-refundable. In the case of student deferment, the enrollment deposit may be retained on account for a maximum of two years.Late Payment Fee
Late fees ($50.00 per occurrence) will apply for payment received after the due date.
Health and Accident Insurance
Student insurance coverage through SIT is mandatory unless proof of insurance is provided for consideration of waiver. The waiver is not guaranteed.
Room and Meals
If a student plans to live on campus, a $100 housing deposit and a completed Housing Request form is required. The housing deposit is applied toward the student’s first semester housing costs. If the student plans to live off-campus, a housing deposit is not required. The student should submit the Housing request form indicating she/he will live off-campus. Please note that the housing deposit becomes non-refundable on July 1.
If a student moves off-campus while enrolled in the on-campus phase of the program, the student would incur a $450 fee for breaking the housing contract. Meal charges are refunded on a pro-rated basis.
All students living on campus are required to take part in the meal plan. All meals at SIT feature “a la carte” pricing such that each item (e.g. cereal, juice, soup, salad, entrée, dessert) has a discreet price. Students are given an ID meal card that tracks meal expenditures. The balance on cards is cleared and reloaded at the beginning and middle of each semester. If it appears that you will exceed your meal card value before the end of the term, you will be notified with ample time to make necessary adjustments. Board fees are only refunded when students change status from on-campus to off-campus residents beginning with the first day of off-campus residency.
Dismissal for Non-Payment of Fees
Students are expected to pay their tuition and fees in full and on time. If payment is not made on schedule and if satisfactory payment arrangements are not made with Student Accounts, the student is administratively withdrawn for non-payment.
Reservation of Rights
The SIT Graduate Institute reserves the right to alter, without notice, its policies and fees.
