Tuition Prepayment Option (2017-2018)

You may wish to prepay future years of tuition and health services fees at the 2017-18 rate of $23,066

per semester, avoiding annual rate increases. The payment for a freshman is $184,528; for a sophomore $138,396; and for a junior $92,264.

Please note that this program covers tuition and health service fees only, and does not include room, board, or other fees. You and your family are responsible for paying these separate charges each semester, as instructed by your invoice.

  • For more details, please consult our TPO Fact Sheet.
  • To enroll in the program, please submit a Data Worksheet
  • We will begin sending contracts to participants in mid-June.

If you are receiving a need-based scholarship from the College, then you are not eligible to participate in this program. Outside scholarships may be applied toward your other charges. Unused funds can be returned to the family at any time (without interest) for students studying out of residence or withdrawing.

Enrollment in the Tuition Prepayment plan requires that you sign a contract with the Financial Aid Office, and you submit a payment by August 31, 2017, in time for fall term registration and to avoid a late enrollment penalty.
