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. They must be paid by U.S. $ personal check, money order, or travelers check. 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 for students in Clinical Sciences are due prior to registration and at least one month prior to the commencement of the semester and/or clinical rotation. Tuition and fees are charged for all clinical rotations. Students in Clinical Sciences will be billed for an entire semester regardless of the starting date as long as the student is anticipated to be in rotations. Financial Aid disbursement can only be made if the student is in rotations for a minimum of 10 weeks during the 15 week semester. Additional charges may be due during fourth year if students choose elective rotations with costs exceeding the standard St. Matthew's University subsidy rate. Each student will pay a maximum of five clinical sciences semesters (given that no rotations were failed).
