Continuing Studies and Fee

A full-time or part-time degree candidate who has completed all required courses other than the capstone/thesis and who is actively working on the Capstone/thesis will be charged a Continuing Fee in lieu of University Tuition, General Fee and the Program Fee*. The Continuing Fee begins one year (3 semesters) after the last course registration, keeps the student active and academically supported in the program, and continues each semester until the Capstone/thesis is delivered. Please Note: A student must be registered/active in order to complete any degree requirements. Therefore, in the semester the Capstone/thesis is delivered, or any incomplete course is graded, a student must be registered in DYNM 990: Masters Continuation.

Course Drop Fee

A student who officially drops a class by the end of the Add period will receive a full refund of their Tuition and General Fee. If the dropped course is the only course the student is registered for in that term, the Program Fee will also be refunded. The Drop/Add deadline dates are listed here. A student who officially drops a class after the end of the Add deadline, but before the end of the 50% Drop deadline may receive a 50% refund of tuition. A student who withdraws from a course after the end of the 50% Drop period but before the end of the Withdrawal period may do so only through submission of a withdrawal form, signed by the course instructor. A student will receive a grade of "W" on the official transcript. No refund of tuition or fees is available. No withdrawals will be permitted after the deadlines listed here. A student who withdraws because of illness should consult the Student Guide for policies.

Late Fees and Financial Hold

A student who is not up-to-date in the payment of tuition or other fees may be placed on Financial Hold. A student on Financial Hold will not be permitted to register for a course. A student who is not up-to-date in the payment of tuition or other fees may be charged Late Fees. As it is possible to negotiate a payment plan to manage financial obligations to the University, a student is encouraged to contact the office of Student Financial Services to discuss all financial concerns and to support their continued graduate studies.

International Courses

The Course Fee covers the direct costs associated with travel, housing, and other mandatory and academically-required elements of a course held away from the Penn campus.
