Payment of all assessed fees at the times designated is prerequisite to official enrollment. Checks and money orders should be made payable to Ohio University in the exact amount of the fees. Postdated checks are not acceptable. Checks not paid upon presentation to the bank will automatically cancel any receipts given and result in assessment of penalties. It is important that you retain all fee receipts.
Ohio University reserves the right to make, without prior notice, any fee adjustments that may become necessary. Graduate students carrying more than eight hours are eligible for the Monthly Payment Plan, which equalizes the academic year's fees into nine monthly payments.
The comprehensive fee covers covers the instructional fee, general fee, and a tuition surchargfe for nonresidents. See the inside fron cover for the schedule of registration fees.
If you register for seven or more credits, you are required to carry student insurance or other comparable health insurance.
The official university policy on the refund of registration fees is:
If you drop hours by change order prior to or during the first 15 days of the quarter, when such changes result in a reduction of fees, you are entitled to receive a 100 percent refund of the reduction. Changes made after the 15th day of the quarter will result in no refund. Refunds are issued 30 days after the date of withdrawal from the university. Refer any questions to the Registrar's Office.
Since Ohio University assesses your tuition costs based on your status as an in-state or out-of-state resident, the following general information is included to help you determine your residency status. The complete policy on Ohio residency is online for your reference in the appendix at the back of this catalog.
In general, you pay in-state tuition if you are a permanent resident of Ohio, which means that you - or your parent(s) or guardian(s) if you're a dependent - have lived in Ohio for 12 consecutive months or more preceding your enrollment at Ohio University. Evidence of Ohio residence includes proof that:
It is your responsibility to report a change of address and/or residency from an Ohio resident to a non-Ohio resident at the Office of Student Records. If your residency has changed to an Ohio resident, you must file a residency petition with the Office of Graduate Student Services. No change of residency can be made until the residency petition has been approved by the assistant vice president for graduate studies. Direct questions concerning residency to the assistant vice president for graduate studies in the Office of Graduate Student Services.
