Tuition and Residency

As a private institution committed to personalized instruction, Missouri Valley College has worked to hold down student costs without compromising standards of academic excellence. Through grants, work, and loan programs, all qualified students are able to afford an education at Missouri Valley College. For details on financial aid to attend Missouri Valley College, contact the Admissions Office.

Missouri Valley College graduate courses are $400 per credit hour. Both resident and commuter graduate students are expected to pay a $250 non-refundable down payment by June 15th of each year. The down payment will be applied to the first semesterís cost.

Account balances are due in full by the first day of class each semester. Accounts not paid by this date will be considered delinquent and will be subject to the rules of delinquent accounts.

When graduate students have been accepted for admission, students, parents, and guardians accept all conditions of payment as well as all regulations of the College.

Charges to graduate students are based on attendance for an entire academic year. Adjustments to these charges are made for commuter students, married students, and for those entering or graduating mid-year, enrolling for additional study, or registering for only a summer semester.

In making the initial non-refundable down payment, the student and parent or guardian acknowledge these terms and signify acceptance of these obligations. No promise or contract that differs from these terms shall bind the College unless it has been signed by the Vice President of Business and Finance of Missouri Valley College. Missouri Valley College reserves the right to increase or reduce fees for each year according to changes in fiscal conditions.

If needed, details of an installment payment plan may be requested from the Business Office.

Delinquent Accounts

Students must meet all financial obligations to the College in order to qualify for continued enrollment or graduation. Each semester students must pay all money due to the College, including tuition, fees, library fines, and any other financial obligations.

Students with delinquent accounts can expect the following:

  1. Late fees will be assessed on all past due balances each month.
  2. Registration for an ensuing semester will be denied.

An official transcript and/or diploma will not be issued.

Students with delinquent balances will be dropped from class, meal plans, and housing.

Withdrawal And Refund

Any student wishing to withdraw from Missouri Valley College must contact the Graduate Studies Office to obtain a "Withdrawal/Departure Form" and follow instructions for proper procedure for withdrawal. Offices to be visited include the Office of Student Affairs, Registrar's Office, Financial Aid Office, and Business Office. Calculation of refunds or tuition adjustments may be based on the student's last date of attendance.

If a student withdraws prior to the beginning of classes, all payments will be refunded, except the initial $250 down payment for residents and commuters.
