2022-2023 Tuition and Fees

Academic charges are established by the Board of Trustees. Circumstances beyond the control of the University may require adjustment of these published charges without notice. The Schedule of Academic Charges is published annually and is available in June. All fees are payable in advance of or at registration. Payment applies only to the semester of registration and will not be credited to another semester except in the case of students granted military leave. Registration is complete when all charges are paid. 

The application for admission fee is payable when the application is filed; the matriculation fee is payable at the time the applicant accepts in writing the university’s offer of admission. 

Billing Information

Statements of student accounts are made available approximately 30 days prior to the term start date.  Students may view and print their bills online at Life at MUSC

Obligation for Payment

Failure to make timely payments to remove any indebtedness to the University when due is considered sufficient cause to withhold diploma or transcripts, to suspend all University services, including enrollment, and to assign the student’s account to a collection agency. The University reserves the right to assess interest, finance charges, and/or late fees on any indebtedness and all attorney’s fees, collection agent cost, and other related cost and charges for the collection of any amount not paid when due.

It is the policy of MUSC that a student’s tuition account will be assessed an insufficient funds (NSF) fee for returned checks. The student will be notified by the University Bursar's Office explaining this situation. Should this situation cause tuition and fees to be unpaid after the first official day of class, a late fee will apply. Additionally, the Office of Student Accounts will place a tuition hold on the student’s account until all tuition and fees are paid.

Penalty will not be levied against financial aid recipients if the student can show that he/she was not responsible for the delay in the award.
