Tuition and Fees 2018-2019

Cumberland University is a private, independent, not-for-profit institution of higher education. The cost of an education at Cumberland University compares with that of peer private colleges in the South. This is made affordable by substantial gifts to the operating fund by alumni and friends of the University.

2018-2019 Tuition and Fees

By matriculating at Cumberland University, a student accepts all the University policies as well as any federal and state regulations regarding payment and refunds. Charges are recorded by the semester and students should come to registration prepared to pay all tuition and fees due the University. Registration will not be complete and students will not be eligible for University privileges: cannot attend class, cannot move into the residence halls or use meal plans, cannot use University facilities, and cannot participate in athletic activities until all fees are paid or appropriate arrangements for payment have been made in the Business Office. Therefore, financial planning for the entire school year is highly recommended. A student who registers assumes a financial obligation. Grade reports, transcripts, and diplomas are held until all balances are paid in full. The University expects that the student will comply in the timely payment of all charges. Personnel are available in the Office of Student Financial Services to assist with financial planning.

Third party students (those students whose tuition is paid by employers) must present, on company letterhead each semester, a statement of his/her company’s policy for payment of tuition and fees in order to register for the semester. Third party students must have no more than the prior semester’s balance outstanding in order to register for the current semester. Third party students must also sign a promissory note each semester stating he/she is responsible for payment in the event the employer does not pay for any reason. It is the responsibility of the student to comply with all employer requirements for the payment of tuition.
