Tuition Payment Policies
Students are expected to meet their payment obligations according to their Student Agreement (i.e., Tuition Payment Options Agreement). Late Payment Fees of $50 are charged to students who fail to meet agreed-upon deadlines for any payment.
Students should expect to be enrolled continuously during their studies at Saybrook. Students are advised that all tuition amounts and fees included herein are only for the current catalog year and may change in the future. All fees are reviewed annually and may be subject to increase by Saybrook at any time.
Students whose payments have not been received in accordance with the terms outlined in their Tuition Payment Option Agreement, or by additional deadlines identified in the Saybrook University Catalog, will have a temporary administrative hold placed on their account until payment is received. All academic services will be suspended until the Business Office releases the hold. Students on administrative hold are ineligible to enroll in courses, submit assignments to the faculty, receive transcript dispersal, have Saybrook website access, receive other instructional services, or have contact with the faculty.
Students relying on federal or private loans for tuition payment must have completed all necessary loan arrangements so that such loans are approved and on file with the Financial Aid Office by the first payment due date each semester. If the financial aid deadline is not met, students are required to make monthly out-of-pocket tuition payments of one quarter of the total tuition due for the semester until the loan money becomes available.
Students should be prepared to meet the additional costs of their degree program. These can include travel, accommodations, food, textbooks, learning guides, course readers, conference call charges, dissertation editors, computer software and hardware, courses at other institutions, commercial data-base searches, professional meetings, conferences and workshops. Learning consultants or other editors are the sole responsibility of the students using their services.
Doctoral Research Grants
Doctoral Research Grants are awarded to doctoral students in PII, CP, and OLT at the time their dissertation proposal is approved by their dissertation committee. The grants are prorated over the remainder of the semester. A reduction for tuition costs will be posted to the student's account when the student's committee chair enters the dissertation proposal approval date in SMS. The effective date of this grant is the Monday of the following week in which the proposal was approved and requires no application process. If a credit then results on the student's account, it will be refunded to the student. Students should consult their committee chair if they have questions regarding the status of their dissertation proposal.

Tuition Course Unit Limit
Students enrolled in more than 16 units in one semester will be charged a per unit fee for units exceeding 16 units. The 16 units does not include units earned by attending residential conferences. Tuition for the 2012-13 Academic Year is USD $21,900 or $10,950 per semester for all 31-unit MA and 76-unit PhD programs. Enrollment above 16 units per semester incurs an additional $880 per unit cost and a $100 fee for unit pricing. Unless otherwise identified, students are subject to the standard Saybrook fee structure.
Master’s students who have only their master’s thesis or project to complete and are in their final semester of work will pay a $100 fee plus $880 per unit for project or thesis if no other courses are taken in this semester.
Most programs require students to attend a Residential Orientation (RO) in their first semester. The Residential Orientation fee is non-refundable once the semester has commenced. Generally, all degree-seeking students are required to attend Residential Conferences (RC) each semester. (See specific degree program description to determine whether your program has this requirement and for the appropriate schedule). All students required to attend RC's must submit the non-refundable fee with their tuition. Students who notify the university that they will not attend the RC within 30 days prior to the start of the RC will be charged a $225 late cancelation fee. No refunds will be granted after the commencement of the RC.
