Mandatory Fee

All new students are assessed a one-time mandatory Orientation fee in their first semester of enrollment, in addition to tuition charges and other fees. The mandatory Orientation fee covers special services and programs new students have access to during their first year, including the university Orientation program, extended Orientation activities, and university publications.

The current fee, referred to as Orientation Publications and Programs, is $55 for graduate students, and is included in the estimated cost of attendance that the Financial Aid Office uses to determine financial aid eligibility. It is not refundable.
