You will be billed for tuition and fees prior to the beginning of each semester. Payments received by Washington University after the specified due date are subject to a late-payment fee.
Students who receive company reimbursement, as well as those who receive other forms of financial aid, are responsible for payment of their tuition by the specified due date, at the beginning of each term. It may be necessary for you to apply for a loan or pay the cost out-of-pocket until your federal loan and/or employer reimbursement funds become available.
Health insurance requirement
Washington University has a health insurance requirement for all full-time, degree-seeking students. Under this requirement, students must either purchase the Washington University Student Health Insurance Plan or prove that they have adequate coverage through another plan. If a student does not demonstrate he or she has adequate coverage from another plan, the student will be automatically enrolled in the Washington University Student plan and billed accordingly. The cost of the Washington University Health Insurance Plan will be published once the rates are finalized. Additional information can be found at the Student Health Services
Financing your MBA
Financial aid comes from a variety of sources, including the federal government, and public and private sources.
Your need for financial aid has no bearing on our admission decision – we evaluate your application without regard to financial need.
- Your eligibility for a particular form of financial aid is determined by a variety of factors, including your citizenship status and the program in which you intend to enroll.
- Apply for financial aid early in the application process. Do not assume you will not be eligible for financial aid.
Merit-based scholarships are gifts that do not have to be repaid. The admissions committee automatically considers each applicant on the basis of personal integrity, a commitment to community, and a dedication to leadership and academic excellence. Merit-based award letters are mailed with the admission packet.
An interest-free payment plan spreads yearly tuition payments over 10, nine, or eight months. The deadline to enroll is August 1. There is a yearly administrative fee. For details, visit the www.finaid.org/ website.
Financial aid for joint degrees
If you decide to pursue a joint degree with another Washington University graduate program, such as law or social work, you’ll apply for three semesters of aid through Olin Business School and the appropriate number of semesters through the other program of study.
