Student Financial Services Counselors assist students in obtaining and making the best use of all resources available to finance the costs of attending the King Graduate School. Students at the graduate level may be able to fund their education through a combination of tuition reimbursement plans from their employers, the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan program, as well as payment plans by Nelnet. Others may be eligible for scholarships and/or grants. Monroe College has a number of corporate partnership agreements, and a student employed by one of these corporate partners may be eligible for a Monroe Partnership Grant.
KGS Tuition and Fees
Billing and Payments
Monroe College uses an online, electronic billing system that enables students to view their accounts, print statements, and make payments. Students may access their electronic bills through Web Advisor. Each time a new statement is ready or a payment is made, students are notified via their Monroe College e-mail address. Students may authorize parents or guardians to access statements and make payments.
Cancellation by the Student Prior to the Start of Classes
There is no financial liability for students who withdraw prior to the start of classes with the exception of the non-refundable Admissions Fee (charged to all first-time and re-admit students) and any bookstore liability incurred.
Students who withdraw or are dismissed after classes begin, are responsible for the administrative fee, actual bookstore charges, and a percentage of tuition as shown on the following chart:
|Withdrawal Date||Amount of Tuition Liability|
|During the 1st week||10%|
|During the 2nd week||30%|
|During the 3rd week||50%|
|During the 4th week||60%|
|During the 5th week||70%|
|During the 6th week||75%|
|During the 7th week||75%|
|During the 8th week||80%|
|During the 9th week and after||100%|
(See additional charts for Housing and Meal Plan cost adjustments as a result of withdrawing from the College.)
Students who do not officially withdraw from the College by the twelfth week of the semester earn grades submitted by the faculty.
Students who withdraw or are administratively withdrawn from the College must satisfy all financial obligations.
Housing and Meal Plan Refunds
Refunds are processed only after the withdrawal and move-out procedures have been completed. Students who are administratively terminated from housing for violating College and/or Residence Life policies are not eligible for a refund.
If a student withdraws from the College or decides to move out during the semester, the student’s liability is as follows:
Amount of Housing Liability
|Withdrawal/Move-Out||Amount of Tuition Liability|
|During the 1st week||15%|
|During the 2nd week||15%|
|During the 3rd week||50%|
|During the 4th week||50%|
|During the 5th week or after||100%|
The meal plan refund policy for students who withdraw from the College during the semester is the same as the housing refund policy. The refund policy for students who decide to drop their meal plan during the semester, is the same as the tuition refund schedule for students who withdraw during the term.
Employer Tuition Reimbursement
Many employers reimburse employees for graduate course work. Students are encouraged to check with their employers to learn if they are eligible for tuition reimbursement and under what conditions.
