General Billing Information
- Statements are generated on a monthly basis and emailed to your ndm.edu account.
- Payment is usually due one month before the start of the semester for students who took advantage of early registration. Failure to pay by the date indicated will result in a monthly late payment fee. Failure to pay by the payment due date may bar the student from attending class.
- Follow-up billings reflecting additional charges or adjustments continue on a monthly basis.
- Note: Financial obligations incurred or billed during a semester must be settled before a student may register, make a room deposit for another semester or receive final grades. Transcripts and diplomas cannot be released until all financial obligations have been met.
- Students should confer with the Business Office regarding additional payment options.
- The University reserves the right to require cash or a cashier’s check at its discretion.
Tuition Adjustment Policy
Tuition adjustments are based upon the total tuition due for all courses in any given semester. They are made on a percentage basis dependent on the date that the written withdrawal request is received in the registrar’s office. Tuition adjustment schedules, with the appropriate dates and percentages, are published in the course schedules at the beginning of each semester.
Please note: telephone messages, communications with faculty members or advisors, and nonattendance at class are not valid methods of withdrawing from classes and do not obligate the University to refund all or part of the tuition. The fact that a student has not attended a class has no impact on tuition adjustment.
Nonpayment of tuition without proper notification to the registrar’s office of withdrawal from classes does not obligate the tuition adjustment.
