I. Regular Payment Plan Room and Board. The payment for the Fall semester is due on or about August 4th; payment for the Spring semester is due on or about January 4th.
II. Deferred Payment Plan Payment Plans are available through Tuition Management Systems which offers various plans. For more information, call 1 (800) 722-4867 x785.
Full tuition covers a total of 30 credits for the Fall and Spring semesters. This tuition does not cover intersession or summer sessions. Credits in excess of 30 per year incur additional charges at the annual per credit rate. Supplementary bills for excess credits are issued during the Spring semester.

Students will not receive transcripts or diplomas until all bills and fines are paid. Unpaid bills may be sent to a collection agency for resolution. Students may be subject to
additional fees and charges if a balance must be handled by a collection agency.

The average cost of a program in the College is $500 per year. This includes required texts, manuals and supplies. Lab and studio fees are additional charges.

For Nursing Program Only: The junior and senior years of the nursing major are estimated to be approximately $2,000 per year to cover the cost of program fee, textbooks, manuals, lab coats and other clinical attire, special equipment such as stethoscopes, transportation to and from clinical facilities, and yearly physical examination, screening, and immunizations.

Nursing majors are required to carry Nursing Liability Insurance. A $300 fee per semester covers the cost of the Nursing Liability Insurance Policy and laboratory fees for junior and senior generic nursing majors in clinical courses. A $200.00 fee, per clinical course, is required of R.N. students. Junior and senior nursing students are required to carry private health insurance. Transportation to clinical facilities is the responsibility of the individual student.

A survey conducted among Mount Saint Vincent students indicates that the average amount spent on clothing, personal grooming products, recreation, etc. is $1,000 per
year. The range from $850 to $2,200 reflects the widely varied modes of living.

The termination date of refund credit shall be considered the day on which the College receives satisfactory written notification of withdrawal from the student. No refunds are made to a matriculated student for withdrawal from an individual course. Students who have excess credits will be charged for credits in courses from which they have
withdrawn. A student ordinarily can expect to receive a refund not later than the end of a 30-day period after the College has received official notification of withdrawal.  The following tuition refund schedule is applicable:
