Nicholas School MEM, MF and DEL-MEM students pay a flat tuition rate for 4 semesters (3 semesters if you are a concurrent degree student). In order to be considered a full-time student:

  • On-campus MEM and MF students must be enrolled for at least 9 credit hours per semester for 4 semesters.
  • DEL-MEM students must be enrolled for at least 6 credit hours per semester for 4 semesters.

If, after 4 semesters, the student needs to take additional course work, the student may request permission to be enrolled on a part-time basis and pay the per credit hour rate. The student’s faculty advisor and the Education Committee must approve the request.

Financial aid awards are based on full-time enrollment; therefore, less than full-time enrollment will result in an adjustment and possible cancellation of funding award(s). Merit-based financial assistance is available for a maximum of four semesters (dual degree students’ financial aid will be adjusted so any student enrolled in or considering a dual degree program should consult with the financial aid counselor promptly).

Questions or concerns about enrollment status options should be directed to Cynthia Peters, Assistant Dean, Student Services.
