Once admitted, a $500 non-refundable seat fee (payable by money order or cashiers’ check only) is required of all students. This fee will later be applied to tuition but is forfeited by those who do not enroll in the first semester. Those who do not enroll will also need to reapply for admission consideration at a later time and may be subject to an additional seat fee.
