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.

Tuition is paid directly to SMMC-SOMI. 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 apply to SOMI courses only at the CFE. Students who take coursework at Marshall University may have additional fees or other expenses.
