Australian Exchange - Program Policies
Tuition Payment Policy
It is your responsibility to ensure that all educational expenses are paid during the semester or session in which they are incurred. If financial aid does not cover all of your expenses, you must either pay the balance in full or arrange for payment. Please contact Stetson University College of Law's Business Office at 727-562-7805.
Payment of current semester charges or payment arrangements must be made by 5 p.m. on the first day of classes.
If the account remains unpaid, the University reserves the right to suspend or withdraw you from classes; withhold grades, transcripts, and diplomas; and, deny you future enrollment.
As this is an exchange program, tuition and fees are paid to Stetson University College of Law for outbound students. Refunds for the exchange programs follow Stetson's refund policy.
