A non-refundable deposit is required of all applicants newly admitted to each graduate program. The admission deposit must be submitted by the stated deposit deadline in the admission letter.
The deposit confirms the applicant’s intent to attend the University. Only those who have confirmed their attendance in the program by sending the proper deposit receive registration information. Applicants must deposit directly to the Office of Graduate Studies or the appropriate admission office. Deposit fees vary by program. Consult the individual graduate unit for information on the required deposit and deadline. The deposit is applied to the first term of tuition. However, fully funded graduate assistants and employees using a tuition waiver may request a refund of the deposit from the Bursar’s Office upon matriculation.
