Financial aid

Limited financial aid is available in the form of low-interest loans and veterans' benefits. Call the Notre Dame office of financial aid at 410-532-5369. Call the registrar’s office at 410-532-5327 to use VA benefits. Employee tuition benefits may be available from your employer.

Tuition adjustment policy

Tuition adjustments are based upon the total tuition due for all courses in any given semester. They are made on a percentage basis dependent on the date that the written withdrawal request is received in the registrar's office. Tuition adjustment schedules, with the appropriate dates and percentages, are published in the course schedules at the beginning of each semester.

Note: Telephone messages, communications with faculty members or advisors, and non-attendance at class are not valid methods of withdrawing from classes and do not obligate the University to refund all or part of the tuition. The fact that a student has not attended a class has no impact on tuition adjustment.

The University reserves the right to drop from classes any student who has not satisfied all financial obligations by the time classes begin. Nonpayment of tuition without proper notification to the registrar's office of withdrawal from classes does not obligate the University to refund tuition payments or to credit a student's account for the tuition for that semester. If the University exercises its right to drop students for nonpayment, students must re-register for the courses. Payment of the outstanding tuition does not constitute re-registration and does not ensure the student a seat in any class.

Requests for a tuition refund must be made in writing to the business office or indicated on the withdrawal form available in the registrar's office. Registration, admission application fee and late fees are non-refundable. A student who is receiving financial aid will be subject to the refund policy established by federal guidelines.

FACTS tuition management

The monthly payment plan enables students to register and make monthly payments during the semester against their outstanding balance. Payments can be made using a credit card or with direct debit from checking or savings accounts. Payments for the fall semester are made during the months of August, September, October and November, for a processing fee of $25. To use the payment plan, students check the appropriate box on the registration form. The Automatic Tuition Payment Agreement form must be completed online at eCashier.

Employer tuition remission payment plans

The Employer Tuition Remission Payment Plan enables students to register and partially defer tuition. At the time of registration all fees and 15 percent of total tuition is due. The balance of your tuition is payable 60 days after the last class of the semester. See the form for full details and requirements. A Verification of Employer Tuition Remission Eligibility form must be completed. For more information regarding the Employer Tuition Remission Payment Plan, call 410-532-5365.
