    Flexible Program Policies

    Student Financial Responsibility Agreement

    Marian University requires all students to sign a Student Financial Responsibility Agreement.  This agreement can be found at under the heading “Offices” and then “Business and Finance.”  We require students to complete this agreement only once.  It will remain in full effect for any and all periods of a student’s enrollment.  This applies for any and all programs in which the student enrolls at Marian University, regardless of whether or not those periods of enrollment or programs run concurrently.

    All students are required to read, print out, and sign this agreement.  The signed form must be returned to the Office of Business and Finance located in Duplex 18 across from Dorcas Chapel on National Avenue or by mail to:

    Marian University

    Attn: Business Office

    45 S. National Avenue

    Fond du Lac, WI  54935

    *Students are required to pay their accounts in full before registering for the next semester courses.

    Graduate Studies Tuition

    All tuition and fees are set by the University’s Board of Trustees on an annual basis. The Office of Business and Finance publishes an annual brochure detailing specific tuition and fee information, which can be obtained from the Office of Business and Finance or the Office of Adult and Graduate Admission.

    Based on the student’s selected program, the following rates are charged per credit:

    Graduate Studies:

    Graduate Business:                             $600
    Other Graduate Programs:                $600

    Students must pay their balance in full by the first day of class. Failure to do so may result in being dropped from classes.

    IMPORTANT: Administrative, clerical, or technical billing errors do not absolve you of your financial responsibility to pay the correct amount of tuition, fees, room and board, and other associated financial obligations due as a result of your registration at Marian University. Students must review their billing statements and contact the Office of Business and Finance should they feel there is any discrepancy.

    Financial Hold

    If balance is above $500, the account is placed on financial hold, which prevents a student from registering for additional courses or making changes to their current schedule.

    Transcript Hold

    If balance is above $0, the account is placed on transcript hold, which prevents a student from receiving an official transcript or diploma.

    On average, Marian University students purchase $700 in textbooks during the academic year. Some academic programs require additional textbooks, resource guides, and supplies that may increase this estimate. Students may purchase or rent textbooks from the Marian University Bookstore, located in the Hornung Student Center.

    One-Time Charge

    Graduate Application fee                  $ 100

    Course Fees

    Certain courses or programs require special materials, supplies, equipment, and/or facilities, the cost of which is passed on to students through course or program fees. Students enrolled in clinicals are assessed fees that cover the direct non-teaching costs incurred by the University. All fees, and tuition, must be covered in full prior to the start of classes and/or clinical rotations.

    Students are responsible for adding, dropping, and withdrawing from courses. This includes the completion and submission of course drop forms to the Registrar Office. The day on which the Office of the Registrar receives the course drop form is the official drop date. To avoid a failing grade, students must drop any courses not attended. Students who receive federal financial aid funding should check with the Office of Financial Aid when any changes are made in course registration for the semester. The following refunds are applicable:

    Drop before first class :  100% refund

    All students withdrawing from the University or changing enrollment status are issued tuition refunds based on the following schedule:

    Length of class                         Amount of refund

    4-week FLEX Program

    1st week                                                    75%

    After 1st week                                  None

    • For purposes of determining refund, the official date of course drop/withdrawal or University withdrawal is the day upon which completed course drop or withdrawal forms are received in the Office of the Registrar.
    • Emails, phone calls, or no longer attending class do not constitute a proper withdrawal from class.  The required course drop form must be completed and submitted to the Office of the Registrar.
    • The Office of Financial Aid has a separate Refund Policy for returning aid when a student withdraws from a course or the University.
    • The refund policy also applies to students who are suspended or expelled for disciplinary reasons.
    • Fees for courses dropped after the add/drop period are not refunded.
    • Room charges are non-refundable.
    • Appeals of the refund policy should be submitted to the Office of Business and Finance.  Appeals must be submitted within 30 days of posting to a student account.
    • Board refunds are made, with appropriately approved exceptions, on a pro-rated basis.
    • Through the appropriate action of its administration and Board of Trustees, the University reserves the right to make changes in the above as financial and operational considerations may require. Changes in tuition or fees after publication of this bulletin are printed separately and are made available to all current and prospective students.
