Graduate Level Tuition and Fees


The current tuition, fees, and charges are listed below. The Student Accounts Office will send an email notification to your Kettering email when your official bill is ready to view on Banner Self Service.   

We have teamed with Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS), to enable you to pay your education expenses through an online payment site - NBS Payments. NBS gives you the option of making a single payment or to sign up for a payment plan.  Payments are processed via direct debit from a bank account or credit card.  Please visit NBS Payments for more information.

 A $40 late fee and a financial hold will be added to all accounts which have not been settled in full by the end of each academic term.

4-credit course $3,648

When registered for courses, students acknowledge enrollment in the course(s) selected and authorize Kettering University to bill for any related tuition and fees. Payment is due the first day your course begins. A ‘hold’ will be placed on the account at the end of each term for those students who have not paid their tuition, submitted a voucher, or enrolled in the NBS payment plan--this prohibits future course registrations and may cause course cancellations and result in a late fee and transcripts being withheld.

Employer Assistance

Many employers provide financial assistance for graduate study. Programs differ, so interested students should contact the appropriate office at their place of employment. Depending on company policy, Kettering University may be able to bill the employer directly for tuition. Students whose tuition is to be billed to their employers must submit complete and proper authorization from the employer to Kettering University. Students should apply for their employer tuition assistance as soon as possible since costs and course offerings are known in advance. Any portion of tuition that will not be paid by the employer must be paid by the student. Kettering University will hold the student responsible for payments not received from the employer.

Tuition Refund Policy for Kettering University Online (KUO) Programs

Due to the shorter length of KUO courses (6 and 8 weeks Online as opposed to 11 week On Campus courses) there is a limited refund policy.  Students in KUO courses should be certain to become familiar with all course materials in the week prior to classes beginning to make a decision about continuing.  Registered students who do not drop the courses by the end of Week 1 will be charged full tuition for the course even if they do not enter into the course.

Week 1 100%
After Week 1 No Refund

KUO students wishing to drop a course in Week 1 should contact their Professional Adviser by Sunday of Week 1.
