A $500 seat deposit and a $750 housing place holder deposit are due no later than 45 days prior to class registration. If your acceptance date is within that 45 day window, deposits are due immediately. Both deposits are applied to overall charges. Seat and housing deposits can be deferred two times to the next contiguous semester, after which both are forfeited.
All students are required to have health insurance. A limited benefit injury and sickness insurance plan is provided through United Health Care. Waivers can be requested by emailing proof of existing insurance (scanned insurance I.D card) to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 10 days after the start of classes. Health insurance for dependents can be purchased (Please email email@example.com for more information). See Insurance Policy Statement for Clinical Students Here.
Housing & Housing Damages Deposit
New students are required to live in student housing for one semester and must pay a $1,000 Housing Damages Deposit (HDD). Both rent and HDD are due prior to the start of classes along with all other charges for tuition and fees per due dates specified on student tuition billing statements. The HDD will be held until the 1-semester housing obligation is met. At the end of the lease after the student has moved out and the apartment has been inspected and appropriate damages or replacement charges have been posted, the HDD will be credited back to the student’s account.
Refunds are only given for tuition and only when students officially withdraw and a credit balance condition results from the appropriate tuition adjustment. Refunds are not given for Leaves of Absence. Official withdrawal forms can be obtained from the campus Registrar’s office. Clinical students should contact the New York Registrar for proper forms.
Tuition credit adjustments will be given according to the following:
- Official withdrawal prior to the first day of class – Credit adjustment for 100% of tuition
- Official withdrawal after the start of classes – Pro-rated credit adjustment for tuition based on the percent of time not attended after the official date of withdrawal. There will be no tuition credits after 60% of the semester has passed.
Estimated food and entertainment expenses per semester – $2,500
Required textbooks and clinical attire (lab jackets, scrubs and patient exam kits) may be purchased through the University bookstore, or from other sources.
