A late fee will be assessed if payment has not been received by the due date.

Students will be housed in individual air-conditioned rooms with meals provided in the dining hall.  Students are discouraged from residing off campus during the residency, but may contact the academic program director for discussion.  Modest annual increases may be expected.

Incoming students may apply to transfer up to 6 credits from approved graduate-level program or related courses successfully completed at accredited colleges or universities.
