Pace University assesses a General Institutional Fee (GIF) to cover costs associated with ancillary services provided to students which are not covered by tuition:
Many institutions charge similar fees or assess separate fees for the aforementioned services. Pace University has consolidated the cost of these services into one concise fee.
The Health Care fee supports the existence of the University Health Care Unit that are located on the New York City and Pleasantville Campuses. These on-campus facilities are staffed by nurse practitioners - registered nurses who have received training in diagnosing and treating illness, and prescribing medications and other treatments. The UHCU is available to all Pace students, regardless of their ability to pay or health insurance coverage or whether or not the student chooses to make use of these facilities. This fee also supports some of the services offered by our Counseling and Personal Development Centers on both campuses.
Pace University assesses a Technology Fee to ensure students have access to the latest instructional technology resources available. All revenue generated from the technology fee goes directly towards funding instructional technology initiatives that are focused on enhancing the student learning experience. A committee comprised of students and faculty will vote to determine which discretionary initiatives receive funding each year, with annual reports to be provided to the Pace Community.
Students who are enrolled in a combined degree program are treated as undergraduate students through the end of the semester (Fall, Spring, or Summer) in which they earn 120-128 credits toward their degree, and then are treated as graduate students beginning with the first semester after the semester in which they achieve 128 credits toward the degree. They are assessed the prevailing undergraduate or graduate tuition rate where appropriate. Undergraduate students who are not enrolled in a combined degree program and who are advised to enroll in a graduate course (resulting in a 12-18 credit load) will be charged the prevailing undergraduate flat-rate tuition. Please be reminded that non-combined-degree undergraduate students may only have a maximum of six (6) graduate credits applied to their undergraduate degree.
Any student who has a delinquent outstanding balance is not eligible to enroll at the University. The University will not provide diplomas to any student with a delinquent outstanding balance. A delinquent outstanding balance will be reported to all national credit bureaus and may significantly and adversely affect the student’s credit history. The University may pursue legal action to recover the amount of the delinquent outstanding balance plus any late charges, interest, actual collection expenses, court costs, and attorneys’ fees.
