Other Fees

Grad Student Taking Undergrad Course OR Undergrad Student Taking Grad Course

The assessment of undergraduate tuition versus graduate tuition should be based upon the level of enrollment, i.e., a student enrolled as a graduate student taking some undergraduate courses shall be assessed graduate level fees for all credits.

Conversely, an undergraduate student taking a graduate level course shall be assessed undergraduate level fees for all credits, as long as the graduate level course is not later used toward a graduate degree.  If these graduate courses are later used toward a graduate degree, the student may be assessed the fee differential at that time.

The student will make this request through the Registrar Office, with a copy to Student Billing.  Additional fee assessment will be calculated and due upon request.

Late Add Assessment

If a student petitions for permission to add a course after the add deadline, late add fees of $15 per course will be assessed if the petition is approved. Additional fees may also be due since students will be assessed for all adds and drops after the 100% refund period rather than the net result of those adds and drops. Check fee implications with the Bursar's Student Billing Office, before submitting a Late Add Petition to the Registrar.

Course Fees

Certain courses require special fees for materials, field trips, equipment rentals, etc. Course fees will be identified in the timetable. In most cases these fees are a non refundable obligation. You may inquire about the refund policies with the department offering the course. The Distance Education Fee of $25 per credit is only refunded during the Add/Drop period of a semester.

Added Credits

In most situations, adding credits will result in additional fee liability. If you add and drop courses during the 100% refund period and those courses have the same credits, are of the same session length, and begin in the same week, you will not have additional fee liability. Always check your SIS account after making changes to your schedule.

Orientation Fee

All new freshmen will be assessed a $212 fee for the GB Orientation program. The fee will cover cost associated with programs such as Registration and Resources (R and R), Summer Connections, Campus Welcome, Orientation, and Major Fair.  See Student Life webpage for more details on new student orientation.

Distance Education Course Fee
