Tuition and Fees

Tuition and fees are billed on a semester basis for students in Basic Sciences and in Clinical Sciences. Tuition and fees for students in Basic Sciences are due upon registration but no later than fifteen days prior to the first day of classes. Non-payment by the first day of classes may result in registration being canceled.

Tuition and fees are subject to change. Students with an outstanding balance are not eligible to register for the next semester without clearing up that outstanding balance to the satisfaction of the Financial Office. For students in both Basic Sciences and Clinical Sciences, a U.S. $100 late fee will be assessed if tuition and fees are not paid for on time.

Clinical Sciences

Tuition and fees are charged for all fourth-year clinical rotations. Tuition and fees for students in the Clinical Sciences are due prior to registration and at least 30 days prior to the commencement of the semester and/or of the clinical rotation. Students who delay in proceeding through their fourth-year clinical rotations may be charged for additional clinical semesters. Additional charges may be due during fourth year if students participate at an affiliate school with costs exceeding the standard St. Matthew's University subsidy rate.
