Financial Information — SGCS
The accountant in the School of Graduate and Continuing Studies deals with accounts for the Associate program, the programs in Business, and programs in Nursing. The Director of Student Accounts, located in Miller Business Center, deals with accounts for all other programs.
Tuition costs through Olivet's School of Graduate and Continuing Studies vary by program. Program and individual course financial obligation information is presented during information meetings and/or at registration. A schedule of payments and analysis of fee structures, along with due dates, is outlined at the class orientation sessions. Students are expected to meet these obligations according to the schedule.
For packaged programs, the student is charged a locked-in tuition rate for the total program. The locked-in rate is designed to reduce the per‑credit-hour cost for the student committing to the entire program. The locked-in rate is honored for students who complete the program according to the prescribed curriculum schedule. Generally, this time does not exceed two years. The student is charged the full tuition rate and appropriate fees for any course taken that is not a part of his or her program core. Students wishing to start a packaged program without all financial aid paperwork on file must pay for the first course at the time of registration. If financial aid paperwork is not received within 30 days of registration, the student will continue to be billed per course. Once all financial aid paperwork has been completed, and provided aid is awarded, these funds may be used as payment for educational costs for the remainder of that academic year.
Please note that graduate religion programs are NOT packaged, and their tuition rate may be subject to change at the beginning of each fiscal year.
Olivet Nazarene University's general education requirements and electives to complete the degree may be taken at the package price for a period of no more than two years.
Students unable to complete a course in a packaged program are allowed to repeat that course with another group of students if arrangements are made through the School of Graduate and Continuing Studies office. Tuition and fees at the current packaged rates are charged for repeating the course.
Olivet Nazarene University reserves the right to change the tuition and fee schedule at any time. However, tuition and fee schedules are guaranteed for students who complete packaged programs according to the prescribed curriculum schedule.
