Tuition and Fees for Graduate International Students

Tuition and fees are payable in the Business Office or via OASIS and are due prior to the beginning of each term. Students that have a past due balance will not be permitted to register for classes for the next term. Please see the Business Office page for information on employer tuition reimbursement and the tuition refund policy. Additional graduate student fee information can be found here.

Courses begin in late August and conclude in early May. Graduate students in the Counseling (MAC) and Education (MAE) programs may begin their program in the fall, spring or summer; Business Administration (MBA) begins only in the fall unless pre-requisites for the program are needed (to be completed during the Summer term); Music Education (MME) is a summer only program that may not be available to international F-1 students.

U.S. visa regulations require students to submit documented evidence of the amount of financial support that will be available from personal resources as well as any additional resource.

MBA Scholarships 

Only the MBA program offers scholarship opportunities. MBA applicants pursuing the full-time, one year program may receive an MBA departmental scholarship based on undergraduate final cumulative grade point average (GPA). See the table below for scholarship eligibility. The PlusOneAdvantage scholarship is also available to any full-time applicant who received their undergraduate degree from Heidelberg in any major or program and graduated with a GPA of 3.0 or above. This scholarship ranges from 25%-100% off the one year tuition. Applicants are automatically reviewed for scholarships upon receipt of all required admission documents (including all international requirements). Students who receive a graduate assistant position are not eligible to receive scholarships as tuition is usually covered by the assistantship contract.
