SMD Student Fee Includes
Student Activity Fee
This fee supports student activities as agreed upon by the Student Senate.
Student Services Fee
This fee provides for miscellaneous services such as lockers, maintenance of the student lounge, an orientation fee for first-year students, and a graduation and post commencement administrative fee for seniors.
Due to rising technology costs, all first, second, third and fourth year medical students will be charged.
Students are billed at cost for equipment broken or lost.
As a convenience for third year students, pagers will be distributed in the Student Services Center and billing for their usage will be via the term bill.
Disability Insurance coverage is provided to all medical students to compensate for the loss of future earnings should they become disabled while in medical school. The disability insurance is administered by the UNUM Insurance Company. This coverage is mandatory for SMD medical students.
Student Fee Adjustment Policies
Once billed, there is no adjustment in fees charged except in the following instances:
- Students who pay tuition for more than four years may request a waiver of the Infection Control fee in subsequent years.
- All students will be charged these fees without exception, including students completing internships or coursework away from campus.
- On occasion, it may be necessary to charge a new fee as a result of a change in the curriculum or the list of required instruments. Likewise, occasionally adjustments to the standard fees may be necessary. In such cases, every effort will be made to inform the students.
