Commitment Deposit

All newly accepted graduate degree students must submit a non-refundable, non-deferrable commitment deposit of $250 (USD) to reserve their space in the graduate program and register for courses. The commitment deposit will be credited towards the student's first semester tuition charges. Commitment deposits are due three weeks from the date on your official acceptance letter.
