Tuition and Fees


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

When registering via the web, 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 academic 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 grade reports 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 On Campus Programs

Course withdrawals and associated refunds are initiated by completing a Graduate Program Course Withdrawal Form and submitting it the Office of the Registrar for processing.  The date the form is received in the Office of the Registrar determines the refund amount.  Students are personally responsible for submitting the forms and verifying their receipt by the University.  Refunds are made to the payer of the tuition.  Click here for a calendar of specific refund dates for each term.

When a student withdraws from a course, refunds are made on the following schedule:

Week 1 100%
Week 2 75%
Week 3 50%
Week 4 25%
Week 5 0%

NOTE:  Kettering University Online (KUO) has a different Refund Schedule.
