The annual tuition rate covers a normal load of 24 to 36 hours for the academic year, which includes Fall Semester, Spring Semester, and January Term. Overload charges will be assessed when:
When a student is enrolled for only one semester during the academic year, charges for credit hours attempted during the January Term are calculated at 50% of the per credit hour rate. Room and board charges, if applicable, are prorated.
Students registered for fewer than 12 hours during a semester (part-time students) are billed at the per credit hour rate rather than the semester rate. In certain circumstances, qualified part-time students may be eligible for financial aid Federal Title IV Aid. Maryville College Institutional Aid is not available to students registered for fewer than 12 hours.
Annual charges for tuition, fees, room, and board are divided into two semester rates. Tuition, fees and all other College charges are due and payable by August 8 for Fall Term and by January 8 for Spring Term. A bill is mailed to the student four to six weeks before the payment due date. It is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements for payment in full including completing the necessary documents for scholarships, grants, and loans before the payment due date.
Business Office and Financial Aid Office staff is available to assist students in financial planning.

In compliance with federal regulations promulgated under the Higher Education Act, a student who withdraws officially from Maryville College and who is receiving Title IV Federal Aid will earn their aid through the 60% point in the enrollment period. After the 60% point of the period of enrollment, 100% of the Title IV aid is earned. Title IV aid that is not earned is returned to the agency from which the assistance was received. The calculation for Federal Title IV funds earned by a student has no relationship to the student’s incurred institutional charges.
Any student considering a withdrawal should contact the Maryville College Financial Aid Office for more information on the return of Title IV funds.
Summer School refunds are prorated. A prorated refund of board charges for the remainder of the semester and for summer session will also be given to both first-time and returning students.
A withdrawal becomes effective when the withdrawal form, properly signed, is filed with the Office of Student Development or the day the College determines the student last attended a class. Students who are dismissed from the College for disciplinary cause are not eligible for a refund of institutional charges. Students who receive financial aid will have part or all of their refunds, as required by refund formulas, credited to the programs from which the awards were made.
Requests for medical withdrawal from the College are made to the Vice President and Dean of Students (Student Development). For a request to be considered, the following conditions must be satisfied:
