Tuition, Costs And Payments

St. Gregory's University is one of the most affordable private universities in the country. For the third year in a row, St. Gregory's has not raised tuition. The University has also eliminated universal fees, which can add up to significant amounts at most other universities.

St. Gregory's has a robust financial aid program, and almost all our full-time students receive some form of financial assistance that does not have to be repaid. Your actual costs to attend may be much lower than the published tuition rate. Our financial aid counselors will work with you to customize your financial aid package.

Delinquent Accounts: Delinquent accounts are those in which monthly payments are past due. In the event an account becomes delinquent and the account is turned over to a collection agency, the cost of the service and reasonable attorney’s fees may be added to the account. Failure to make payments of any indebtedness to the University when due, including but not limited to, tuition and fees, housing and meal plan charges, student loans, housing, library or parking fines, is considered sufficient cause, until debt is settled with verified funds, to:

  1. Withhold diploma, grade reports or transcript records;
  2. Bar the student from classes; and
  3. Dismiss the student

What to Expect

Statements of student accounts are mailed by the first of each month. Failure to receive a statement does not affect the responsibility of the student to make timely monthly payments.

Students will be responsible for all charges reflected on their student account as well as any charges posted after the previous statement (e.g. fines, damages, library fines, additional fees, etc.).

Student accounts reflecting a credit, due to overpayment by federal aid or by the student, are entitled to a refund of that credit. Refunds will be issued no later than 14 days after credit occurs. Any credit reflected on a student account may be used as payment towards an upcoming semester.

St. Gregory’s University will not release grades or transcripts to any student with an outstanding balance on his or her account. At the time of enrollment or graduation, accounts must be paid in full in order to participate in any enrollment period and/or graduation ceremony. Pre-enrollment may be permitted if scheduled payments are all made accordingly. Resident students receive their meal tickets only after the first one-fourth payment is made. All resident students are required to participate in a meal plan. Meal plan will be billed to accounts automatically.

General Expenses

Any additional charges payable to the university, if incurred during the semester, will be submitted to the student as they become payable. A student will not receive a diploma or a transcript of credits until his or her account with the university has been paid in full. If a student still owes an outstanding balance from the previous semester, he or she will not be allowed to move into the dorms or complete enrollment until the account is paid in full.

Scholarships, loans, grants, etc., approved by the Financial Aid Office may be deducted at the rate of one-half of the total annual award per semester. Financial aid will probably not cover the entire cost of college, and the student is required to pay the balance or make arrangements for payment of the balance before completing enrollment.

Note: The expenses described in this section include only those weeks during which classes are in session. Residence halls are not open during the Christmas vacation or the Spring Break periods.

Withdrawal from the University

St. Gregory’s University hereby establishes a fair and equitable refund policy under which the university makes a refund of unearned tuition, fees, room and board, and other charges to a student who does not register for the period of enrollment for which the student was charged. Failure to notify the Registrar’s office by completing proper withdrawal form will incur charges until such withdrawal is properly processed.

Procedures for Withdrawal from the University

Students unable to remain at the university to complete their courses for the term should process a full withdrawal by completing the following steps: 1) Obtain Withdrawal Form at Registrar’s Office; 2) Obtain the authorized signatures; 3) Return the Form to the Registrar’s Office. Withdrawals are not complete until validated by the Registrar. Refunds, if any, are based on the date of Registrar validation. Failure to withdraw using these procedures will make you liable for any and all charges due.

No refunds are calculated for students who do not officially withdraw, except when Federal re-funds are required (see Federal refund section below). In such cases, the student’s withdrawal date is the last recorded date of class attendance by the student, as documented by the university.

Dropping Courses

Procedures and deadlines for dropping courses are described in the section of this catalog under Academic Regulations. Course drops are not complete until validated by the Registrar’s Office. Tuition adjustments, if any, are based on the date of Registrar validation. Usually, Federal financial aid is not affected if courses are dropped after the start of the third week of classes. However, students should check with a Financial Aid counselor regarding their future eligibility for Federal aid.

Non-Refundable Charges

The following charges are not refundable for course drops or withdrawals: admission and application fees, registration fees and room deposits.

University Refund Formula for Dropping Courses and Full Withdrawals

Refunds for affected Department of Defense Tuition Assistance students attending St. Gregory's University classes are dictated by our memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the DoD.

All other adjustments for dropping courses are figured from the official date of registration to the date the drop is validated by the Registrar. Adjustments for full withdrawls will be made only for tuition, housing and meal charges, figured from the official date of registration to the date of the withdrawal is validated by the Registrar.

St. Gregory’s University - Return of Title IV Funds Policy for Traditional Students

The Higher Education Amendments of 1998 changed the formula for calculating the amount of aid a student and school can retain when the student totally withdraws from all classes. Students who withdraw from all classes prior to completing more than 60% of an enrollment term will have their eligibility for aid recalculated based on the percent of the term completed. You should contact the FAO to see how your withdrawal will affect your financial aid.

  1. This policy shall apply to all students who withdraw, drop out, are dismissed or take a leave of absence from St. Gregory’s University, and receive financial aid from Title IV funds:

    1. The term "Title IV Funds" refers to the Federal financial aid programs authorized under the Higher Education Act of 1965 (as amended) and includes the following programs: Federal Direct Unsubsidized loans, Federal Direct subsidized loans, Federal Direct PLUS loans, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Pell Grants, Federal SEOG, and Oklahoma Tuition Aid Grant (OTAG).
    2. A student’s withdrawal date is:
      1. the date the student began the institution’s withdrawal process (as described in the St. Gregory's Catalog) or "officially" notified the institution of intent to withdraw; or
      2. the midpoint of the period for a student who leaves without notifying the institution; or
      3. the student’s last date of attendance at a documented academically-related activity.
  2. Title IV aid is earned in a prorated manner on a per diem basis up to and including the 60% point in the semester. Title IV aid and all other aid is viewed as 100% earned after that point in time.
    1. The percentage of Title IV aid earned shall be calculated as follows:

      • Number of days completed by student divided by Total number of calendar days in term* equals Percent of Term Completed.
      • The percent of term completed shall be the percentage of Title IV aid earned by the student.
      • The total number of calendar days in a term of enrollment shall exclude any scheduled breaks of more than five days.
    2. The percentage of Title IV aid unearned (i.e., to be returned to the appropriate program) shall be 100% minus the percent earned.
    3. Unearned aid shall be returned first by St. Gregory's from the student’s account. The lesser of the two formulas below will be returned. Total institutional charges X percent of unearned aid = amount returned to program(s)
    4. Or: Title IV federal financial aid disbursed multiplied by the unearned percentage.Unearned Title IV aid shall be returned to the following programs in the following order:
      1. Unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loan;
      2. Subsidized Direct Stafford Loan;
      3. Federal Perkins Loan;
      4. Parent Loans to Undergraduate Students (PLUS);
      5. Federal Pell Grant;
      6. Federal SEOG;
      7. Other Title IV grant programs (i.e.Oklahoma Tuition Aid Grant (OTAG))

      Exception: no program can receive a refund if the student did not receive aid from that program.

    5. When the total amount of unearned aid is greater than the amount returned by St. Gregory's from the student’s account, the student is responsible for returning unearned aid to the appropriate program(s) in the following order:
      1. Unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loan*
      2. Subsidized Direct Stafford Loan*
      3. Federal Perkins Loan*
      4. Parent Loans to Undergraduate Students (PLUS)*
      5. Federal Pell Grant**
      6. Federal SEOG**
      7. Other Title IV grant programs** (i.e. Oklahoma Tuition Aid Grant (OTAG))

      *Loans amounts are returned with the terms of the promissory note.

      **Amounts to be returned by the student to federal grant programs will receive a 50% discount.

  3. Refunds and adjusted bills will be sent to the student’s home address on file in the Business Office following withdrawal. Students are responsible for any portion of their institutional charges that are left outstanding after Title IV funds are returned.
  4. Any award money you do have to return is considered a Federal grant overpayment. You must either repay that amount in full or make satisfactory arrangements with either the University or the Department of Education to repay the amount. You must complete these arrangements within 45 days of the date of the University’s notifying you or your overpayment status or risk losing your eligibility for further Federal financial assistance.
  5. Institutional and student responsibilities in regard to the return of Title IV funds.
    1. St. Gregory's responsibilities in regard to the return of Title IV funds include:

      1. providing each student with the information given in this policy;
      2. identifying students who are affected by this policy and completing the Return of Title IV Funds calculation for those students;
      3. returning any Title IV funds that are due the Title IV programs.
    2. The student’s responsibilities in regard to the return of Title IV funds include:
      1. becoming familiar with the Return of Title IV policy and how complete withdrawal affects eligibility for Title IV aid;
      2. returning to the Title IV programs any funds that were disbursed directly to the student and which the student was determined to be ineligible for via the Return of Title IV Funds calculation.
