Financial Obligations


All tuition fees and other University charges must be paid before students are permitted to register for classes (see tuition and fees). Responsibility for payment of tuition and all other University charges is solely that of the student. Billing is posted to the Student Self-Service Account. Notification that bills are available for viewing is sent via email to students’ University email accounts approximately one month prior to the due date. In the event students do not have fees posted to their account, it is their responsibility to contact the Bursar's Office to request proper billing.


University policy requires that entering medical, veterinary medical, and graduate students live in campus residence halls for their first term; students entering into the preclinical, preveterinary medical, and undergraduate programs must live in the campus residence halls for their first year and will be billed accordingly. Students will be assigned housing and roommates in order of their acceptance. If students have a specific roommate request, it should be indicated to the housing coordinator. After this initial period on campus, upperclassmen who did not initially contract for their second term will be accommodated on campus according to availability by a lottery system and will be billed accordingly (see housing rates on separate insert). There are many houses, apartments, and efficiency units close to campus. All matriculated students on the Grenada campus are strongly advised to live in University-recommended housing either on- or off-campus, at the discretion of the University. There are currently no housing accommodations available on campus for students with children or pets. Students residing off-campus are responsible for their own housing expenses. The University reserves the right to require students to live on campus. During clinical terms, students are responsible for their own room and board; although, the University and affiliated hospitals may provide some assistance.
