Assessment of Tuition and Fees
For students enrolled in master’s programs, tuition is assessed on a per-credit basis for each degree or certificate program. Dependent upon the program, tuition is assessed on a per-credit basis or is assessed by semester. Each program has a minimum number of required semesters. Students pay tuition plus applicable fees each semester they are enrolled. Please refer to tuition and fees for the minimum number of semesters in each program. Total degree program costs will vary depending on the length of time spent in a program and whether the program requires a Master’s Project, Master’s Thesis or Dissertation.
Tuition is due at registration and does not include the cost of field study fees.
Please Note: Tuition and fee charges are subject to change each academic year, effective with the summer semester.
Tuition Billing and Payment Information
Students are expected to be enrolled full time and follow the course curriculum outlined in their programs. Tuition and fees are based based both on the program and on the number of credits a student registers for. Once the registration has been submitted in myAntioch, the student should proceed to the Pay On My Account section and make the necessary payment.
Financial aid recipients should only pay the balance not covered by the net aid award. Please contact the Office of Student Accounts if you have questions.
If payment of an outstanding balance is not completed by the registration deadline as noted in the Academic Calendar, the student’s registration will be administratively withdrawn from the semester. Seats in all classes will be forfeited. At that time, the student will be placed on financial hold and will need to contact the Student Accounts Office to make payment arrangements, including payment of late fees. Once payment arrangements are completed, students must select and submit their course choices again.
There is no guarantee that seats for all courses will be available for resubmitted registrations.
Students who have not registered by the registration deadline will be placed on financial hold, and registration access will not be permitted. Payment arrangements, including payment of late fees, will then need to be completed with the Student Accounts Office prior to accessing registration.
Students with an outstanding balance from the current or previous semesters will not be permitted to register until the account is cleared.
Acceptable financing options of outstanding balances are:
- payment by check, echeck or credit card;
- payment deferment based on pending student loans to cover the total balance due;
- enrollment in tuition payment plan with Tuition Management Systems, Inc. (TMS); or
- approved payment from a qualified third-party payor.
In most cases, tuition reimbursement from employers is not an acceptable financing option. If you have specific questions about employer-paid tuition benefits, please contact the Student Accounts Office.
Registering for classes obligates the student for payment of applicable tuition, fees, and other charges. Failure to attend classes does not constitute withdrawal from Antioch or exemption from tuition payment.
A student is considered to be enrolled for the semester as of the first day of the semester as defined by the academic calendar rather than on the first scheduled class meeting day.
