ASHS Distance - Audiology
Tuition is $8,620 for the entire program during the 2012-13 year. The tuition for this program is due 5 (or approximately a month) weeks before classes begin.
Payment plans are available for the cost of tuition. Payments include the tuition cost plus a nonrefundable $175 service fee. Below is an example of a student utilizing the payment plan to pay for their tuition.
Robin wants to start the Transitional AuD program in the Spring quarter of 2012, which begins March 1, 2012. She cannot pay the full balance and wants to avoid private loans, so she opts for the payment plan.
Robin's payments would be as follows:
- Due -January 25, 2012- Tuition payment of $2,075 plus $175 service fee = $2250
- Due -May 15, 2012 Tuition payment of $2,075
- Due -August 15, 2012 Tuition payment of $2,075
- Due -November 15, 2012 Tuition payment of $2,075
Robin's total tuition payments would add up to $8,475 -which is the tuition of $8,300 + $175 service fee.
Since the program is linear in nature and has modules, none of the students enrolled are considered half-time. Therefore, Transitional AuD students are not eligible for any federal loans.
Students that will need loans may be able to find a private loan at www.studentloanlistings.com.
Many banks outside of Missouri make students wait 10 business days to tap their loan funds when deposited by check. Therefore, we require that all students use direct deposit where ATSU wires money to the student's checking account. This way, the money is available on the day it is wired to the bank.
If you withdraw from the program after you have submitted your tuition payment, the following refund policy applies. Withdrawal prior to logging on to the first module = tuition refund minus $250 pre-matriculation fee. Withdrawal after logging on to but not completing the first module = tuition refund minus $500 ($250 pre-matriculation fee + $250 matriculation fee). Withdrawal after completing one or more classes = pro-rated tuition refund based upon percentage of program credits completed minus $500. For example if you have completed 50% of your program credits before you withdraw, you would receive a tuition refund of 50% of the program costs minus $500.
