2019-2020 Graduate Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]


Tuition and Fees

Semester bills for tuition and fees are issued to students electronically as eBills.  Fall semester eBills are posted in early July for registered students, and payment is due the beginning of August.  Spring semester eBills are posted in early December for registered students, and payment is due the beginning of January.  After the initial billing date, eBills for students registering or making changes to their schedule that increase the total charges will be issued on a regular basis through the drop/add period.  EBills posted after the original due date for the semester are due upon receipt.  Students receive notification at their YCP email address each time an eBill has posted to their online account. A $50 PER MONTH LATE PAYMENT FEE APPLIES AFTER THE DUE DATE.

Tuition and fees are payable prior to the beginning of each session according to the published due dates. No reduction in tuition or fees is made for late registration. Grades or transcripts will not be released until all financial obligations have been met.  Unpaid accounts will be referred to a collection agency.  The agency will charge fees up to 35% of the debt owed.

Master’s Program Payment Deferment:  The Master’s Program also offers a deferment plan for those students who receive employer reimbursement.  This allows the student to temporarily postpone paying the portion of the eBill that will be reimbursed by the student’s employer.  A Master’s Program Deferment Form must be completed each semester and turned into the Business Office before the original due date of the eBill in order to qualify.  The form can be found on the YCP website, in the Business Office Forms section.  Forms are also available in the Business Office or from the student’s Department.

Late Registration Fee: An applicant who has been admitted to a graduate program but has not registered during the regularly scheduled registration period may enroll late during the first week of an academic session. The late registration fee will be charged.

Continuous Enrollment Fee: $75

For those students not enrolling in regular classes but who wish to retain their matriculation.  A continuous enrollment fee of $75 is payable through the end of the drop/add period.

Withdrawals and Refund Policy

Tuition deposits are nonrefundable as administrative fees. Withdrawals prior to the drop/add period will receive a 100% refund of tuition and fees as charged. The deposit will be held. The complete Refund Policy is available at www.ycp.edu/about-us/offices-and-departments/business-office/refund-policy/ .

Failure to attend class, merely giving notice to instructors, or telephoning, will not be considered as an official withdrawal and will result in receiving a failing grade for the course. Students who do not officially withdraw are still responsible for payment of tuition and fees. A Records and Registrarʼs Office Change Form must be obtained and returned to the Registrarʼs Office. Fees are not refundable after the Drop/Add period. Tuition refunds will not be processed after the fourth week. 

Graduate Financial Assistance

Graduate students are eligible to participate in the Federal Direct Student Loan program. You must be a degree candidate. Federal regulations specify that federal financial aid recipients must be US citizens, US nationals or eligible non-citizens.

A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be filed annually to establish eligibility for the Stafford Loan. More information is available by visiting http://www.fafsa.gov.

Employer Reimbursement

Many employers reimburse educational expenses of their employees. Contact the Human Resources Office where you are employed for more information.
