Financial Information

Back to 2010-2012 Graduate Catalog Home Page  

 

As a matter of basic policy, charges to students are kept to a minimum. These charges are less than what it actually costs Berry to provide graduate study. To balance the difference between actual educational costs and the amount a student pays, Berry must obtain from other resources a substantial amount for each student.

 

 Tuition and Fees

Audit Fee, per semester hour 50% of tuition
Technology Fee, per semester $25  
Student Activity Fee, per semester (if registered for 9 hours or more) $75
Replacement of student-identification card $25 
Graduation Fee (including keeper cap and gown) $60
Late Clearance Fee $50
Transcript of record $5
Fee for returned check (each transaction) $40


Tuition rates are announced annually. Information is available from the business office at 706-236-2252 or from their Business Office website .

These and other regular semester charges become effective at the beginning of the  2010 fall semester. Some or all charges may necessarily be increased in  2011-2012. The Board of Trustees reserves the right to change any charge (tuition, fees or other) at any time.

A meal plan is optional for graduate students, who may also purchase single meals in the dining hall. For information, consult the business office.

 

Financial Aid

Students who are accepted as degree-seeking students into the graduate program at Berry College may be eligible for financial aid if carrying a minimum of five semester hours. Part-time graduate students must satisfactorily complete at least 70 percent of any attempted course work in order to continue to receive federal financial aid. Federal loans are available for eligible graduate students who apply for financial aid.  The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required to determine eligibility for these loans.  Questions about applying for financial aid can be addressed in the Berry College Office of Financial Aid, Herman Hall Room 105, or by calling 706-236-1714

Note:  Graduate students enrolled in at least six hours may be eligible for graduate assistantships, which can greatly enhance employability. Graduate assistantship information can be secured through the graduate coordinators in the Campbell School of Business and the Charter School of Education and Human Sciences.

 

 

Applying for Financial Aid

Graduate students are encouraged to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the federal processors online using FAFSA on the Web (www.fafsa.gov).  The Federal Student Aid Report (SAR) is generated by the federal processors in response to the student’s submission of the FAFSA. The SAR must be received by the financial-aid office (along with supporting documentation as requested by that office) to determine eligibility for any need-based financial aid. It is also required for participation in any of the federal student loan programs.
 

Financial Obligation to the College

A student who is delinquent in payment of any financial obligation to Berry College may be removed from classes; may not be allowed to register at the college for another semester until such delinquency is satisfied; may not be issued transcripts or a degree; and may be subject to further action.
 

Payment of Charges Each Semester

Each student who has preregistered is billed in advance with an itemized statement of charges for the semester; financial-aid credits applied, if any; and the net amount due to complete registration. Students who register after the designated preregistration period will not receive an itemized bill and must contact the business office to make payment arrangements. Students registering during the drop/add period should contact their advisor to confirm course choices before registering and then contact the business office to make payment arrangements.

Net charges are due and payable on or before the fee-payment date.  The student Deferred-Payment Plan is available for those who wish to pay charges for each semester in monthly installments. A service charge will be assessed students who choose the Deferred-Payment Plan.  Students who receive tuition reimbursement from their employer should complete an Employer Tuition Payment Form, available from all graduate studies program offices, and submit it to the business office as payment of all or part of their charges.
 

Clearance to Attend Classes

A student will not be “cleared” to attend classes and professors will not admit students to class until the business services office has received the net amount billed or the first installment under the Deferred-Payment Plan for the semester and all scholarship, loan and other financial-aid forms and/or checks have been signed.
 

Refund of Charges

All students who withdraw during a semester will be charged tuition, and room and board if appropriate, at the rate of 10 percent of the semester charge for each week of enrollment. If a recipient of financial aid withdraws and is scheduled to receive a refund, all or part of this refund will be used to reimburse the financial-aid programs from which the student received funds. Other fees are not refundable.

Students receiving Title IV Federal Financial Aid are subject to a percentage of these funds being refunded back to the Fund, depending on the number of days enrolled in the semester.
