Policy Provisions
1.

Tuition and Fees


The 2010-2011 graduate tuition rate is $775.00 per semester hour.  For enrollees taking seven (7) semester hours, the tuition is $5,425.00.  During the one (1) semester the M.S.P. students take eight (8) semester hours, the tuition would be $6,200.00.  There is no activity fee for M.S.P. enrollees.  A graduation fee will be charged during the last semester of enrollment, prior to graduation.

 


2.

Scholarship Availability and Cost of Attendance with a Scholarship


An admitted M.S.P. student will qualify for a special graduate scholarship.  The University provides these awards based on the enrollee having received a baccalaureate degree and the perceived potential for success in both this academic program and in the current/future employment arena.  Individual scholarship students are encouraged to seek additional funding and/or reimbursement from their employing agencies.  A per month payment plan and/or a student loan program will be made available on tuition balances due after all scholarship monies have been applied to a student account.  The University accepts both personal checks and MasterCard/Visa/Discover/American Express in addition to cash for the payment of tuition and fees.  The tuition cost(s) for scholarship students will be calculated at the following rate:

 

     $   410.00 per semester hour

     $ 2,870.00 per semester (taking seven [7] hours)

     $ 3,280.00 per semester (taking eight [8] hours)

 

Employees of the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services may be eligible to receive additional tuition assistance.  Specific information is available through the Department.

 


3.

Payment Plan


A no-interest budget plan (“FACTS”) is available for students.  A $35.00 per semester or a $50.00 annual enrollment fee is charged.  In order to participate, a student must complete an “Automatic Tuition Payment Agreement” which authorizes their bank to deduct tuition charges from a checking and/or savings account on specific dates during the semester.  This plan may also be used with a valid MasterCard/Visa/Discover/American Express credit card.  Students considering the “FACTS” payment plan should read the current information and apply for the plan through the University website – www.cumberland.edu.
