January Payment and Cancellation Policies

A non-refundable commitment fee of $1,000 is due on October 15. Students will be sent instructions for how to pay in their application. Students who do not make payment by this date will have their applications withdrawn.


Tuition will be billed by the SMU Bursar's Office on the regular billing date for the January term, early January 2, 2020. Students will make the payment in using the regular University payment procedures. Withdrawing after January 2 will result in a $500 fee in addition to the $1000 commitment fee to cover SMU's unrecoverable costs. 


Non-payment will result in the student being withdrawn from the program.
