|# of courses||Tuition|
After you’ve been admitted to the program, you will receive instruction from the BSME North American Office regarding tuition payment. All tuition must be paid in full before June 22, 2020 (one week prior to the first day of classes), unless other arrangements have been made.
If you choose to withdraw from a course (or from the program), we will reimburse a portion of your tuition according to the following schedule: before the program start date, 80%; less than 1 week into the program, 60%; less than 2 weeks, 40%; less than 3 weeks, 20%; beyond 3 weeks, no refund.
BSME does not offer financial aid or scholarships. If you receive financial aid, grants, or scholarships through your home institution, it is often possible for some or all of this money to be applied toward your BSME tuition. Please check with the Financial Services Office or Study Abroad Office at your home institution and verify if they will remit payment or if it is your responsibility.
If your home institution is responsible for your tuition, please share the BSME invoice (which you will receive after acceptance) with the office responsible for payment. If your school needs an invoice to come directly from us, please contact the BSME North American Office.
