Payment Information

The first tuition payment is due upon receipt of the orientation reservation or other intent to enroll document. Subsequent payments must be received by the due date; see the Tuition Delinquency  policy for details.

Tuition is billed at least one month prior to the due date or during registration for the term, and is considered delinquent if not received by the due date. Delinquent accounts are subject to penalty fees and finance charges.

Tuition due dates for academic year 2017-2018 are as follows:

Fall 2017 - Due 08/28/2017
Spring 2018 - Due 01/02/2018
Summer 2018 - Due 05/01/2018

Students expecting a student loan or tuition reimbursement assistance need to have reserve funds available to cover tuition costs between the time tuition is due and the time of receipt of the loan disbursement or reimbursement. Students are responsible for tuition payments upon enrollment, whether or not a loan or reimbursement is pending.

Payments must be issued in US dollars. Payment can be made online via WebAdvisor in the myFielding portal. WebAdvisor will accept electronic check payments, Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover credit cards. Payments may also be mailed to the address noted below:

Cost of Attendance for Financial Aid

The cost of attendance (COA) budget is used to calculate need eligibility for certain scholarship funds, and it provides a cap for maximum allowable aid. The actual COA is calculated and shown on the Award Letter when a student requests financial aid. Significant cost increases due to individual circumstances, such as disabilities, dependent care, or computer purchase may be considered on an individual basis. These costs are not paid directly to Fielding and are estimates for an average student.
