Graduate Studies Tuition and Fees 2015-2016

Per credit course tuition is set by the administration of Martin Luther College. 

For the graduate studies program, a one-time program application fee and a graduation fee are charged. The comprehensive examination fee and the tuition for capstone projects are paid before beginning them.



Billing Error or Dispute

Errors or disputes about a charge are first addressed to the billing department of the Financial Services Office informally via email, phone, etc. If the matter is not resolved informally, the student writes a letter detailing a description of the presumed error and the dollar amount. The letter is addressed to the Chief Financial Officer who makes the final determination concerning the error or dispute.
