A comprehensive fee covers tuition costs for regularly enrolled students taking
twelve (12) to eighteen (18) semester hours of academic work per semester. Those
students registering for more than a regular enrollment pay an extra charge
for each additional hour. Classified students enrolling for less than twelve
(12) hours per semester pay per semester hour instead of the comprehensive fee.
All unclassified or non-degree students pay per semester hour.
Fees may include but are not limited to the following: Student Activity Fee,
Applied Music Fees, Student Teaching Fee, Change of Registration Fee, and General Campus Access Fee.
All room assignments are handled by the Office of Student Programs and Services
(SPS). An additional fee is charged for single rooms.
The board cost includes three meals per day during the scheduled term (total of 19 meals per week), except
on days immediately preceding a holiday or break when no evening meal is served.
Commitments for the purchase of food and labor involved in meal service are
made in advance and, therefore, no rebates or allowances will be made because
a student misses any meal occasionally or regularly.
All students living in College residence halls are required to purchase the College's
board plan. Special dietary requests should be directed to the Dean of Students and Food Service
Director, accompanied by a specific statement from a U.S. physician.

Athletic Insurance Requirement
NCAA requires students participating in intercollegiate athletics to purchase

especially for its students. All full-time students attending the college are
required to participate in this program unless proof of comparable coverage
is furnished. Part-time students are not eligible for coverage under this program.
Students may also secure family coverage. Eligible dependents are the spouse
(residing with the insured student) and unmarried children, under nineteen years
of age, who are not self-supporting and reside with the insured student. A medical
expense benefit schedule is also available. The annual fee for this insurance
will be quoted in your fall billing.
