Method of Payment

Tuition and fees are due and payable in full prior to and as a condition for registration.

Students preferring to pay semester charges in monthly installments must have payment arrangements completed prior to registration. Financial arrangements may be made with the Business Office, and can be reached at 570-208-5830.

Students with a verified tuition-reimbursement benefit from their employers may defer payment of the portion of their tuition covered by the benefit until after the end of the semester, after grades are released. For a copy of the benefit-verification form or for more information about policies concerning tuition-reimbursement benefits, contact the Graduate Division at 570-208-5991.

American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Discover credit cards may also be used for payment.

A satisfactory settlement of all college accounts is required before grades are released, or degrees conferred. Likewise, no request will be honored for transcripts of record, recommendations, or other information concerning academic records unless a student's account has been settled in full.

The College reserves the right, in those instances where a student is deemed to be in serious violation of College policy, to initiate cancellation of the student's registration. If such cancellation occurs after the semester begins, tuition charges will be adjusted accordingly, and a grade of "AW" (Administrative Withdrawal) will be entered on the student's transcript.

Financial Aid

King's College seeks to ensure that no student accepted for admission is unable to matriculate for financial reasons. Although payment is the responsibility of the student, the College makes every effort consistent with financial resources available to assist students with adequate support.

Applicants for financial aid are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This form can be completed on-line at www.fafsa.ed.gov. King's College School Code is 003282.

Federal Direct Stafford Loans are available to graduate students who are fully accepted into a graduate degree program or graduate certificate program and who enroll in at least six credits per semester or session. Graduate students can borrow up to $8,500 subsidized and $12,000 unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loans every two semesters. Using the Federal Graduate Plus Direct Loan, graduate students are also eligible to borrow up to the cost of attendance, after Stafford Loans are deducted.

The interest rate is fixed at 3.4% for the subsidized Federal Direct Stafford loan and fixed at 6.8% for the unsubsidized Federal Direct Stafford Loan. The interest rate is fixed at 7.9% for a Federal Direct Plus Loan for Graduate Students. These interest rates became effective July 1, 2011.
