Tuition/Fees, Refund Policy and Program Expenses

Unless otherwise noted, all fees are due at the beginning of each academic year. There is no difference in tuition for West Virginia residents or out-of-state residents. All fees are subject to change without notice.

Marshall University grants a tuition waiver for all SMMC tuition expenses. This means students pay SMMC directly. Students who receive financial aid from Marshall may receive fall aid by August, but must contact the Financial Aid office early in order to do so. Students may be granted a short-term extension in fee payment under extenuating circumstances.

Projected Expenses

Projected expenses apply to SOMI courses only at the CFE. Students who take coursework at Marshall University may have additional fees or other expenses.

Financial Aid

St. Mary’s School of Medical Imaging is not a gatekeeper for Federal Financial Aid. Students may apply for federal student loans or grants through the Marshall University Financial Aid office. SMMC SOMI provides information on tuition or fees to Marshall University. SMMC SOMI has no influence regarding the award or denial of federal or state financial aid. SMMC- SOMI will notify MU and the Financial Aid Office if any student voluntarily withdraws or is dismissed from the program. St. Mary's Medical Center School of Medical Imaging is approved for VA funding.
