Special Course Fees













































































































Same for Undergraduate and Graduate
Special course fees are listed in the course schedule, with the specific course, if applicable.

General Institution Fee (GIF)
Pace University assesses a General Institutional Fee (GIF) to cover the costs of libraries, fitness centers, and other costs which support student services not covered by tuition. Many institutions charge similar fees or they assess separate fees for the aforementioned services. Pace University has consolidated the cost of these services into one concise fee for the convenience of its student population.

University Health Center Fee (UHCF)
Pace University assesses a University Health Center Fee (UHCF) to cover the co-pay costs for accident and sickness visits to campus Health Centers.  Health Center services not covered by this fee include wellness visits, preventive services, diagnostic tests, procedures, and laboratory services.  This fee is assessed every Fall and Spring semester to full-time undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students.

Technology Fee
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.

Graduate Courses Taken by Undergraduates
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 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 credits load) will be charged the prevailing undergraduate flat rate tuition. For either of these tuition exceptions to occur, formal notification must be given to an OSA/Student Accounts manager by the academic adviser once the student is registered, so that the tuition can be manually adjusted as necessary prior to the beginning of the applicable semester. Please be reminded that non-combined degree undergraduate students may only have a maximum of six (6) graduate credits applied to their undergraduate degree.

Important Notes

  • Students in arrears to the University may not be permitted to register for either credit bearing or non-credit bearing continuing education courses until their prior balance is paid in full. Payments received for new enrollments will be applied to any outstanding balance due Pace University.
  • PERSONAL CHECKS: Personal checks are accepted in payment of tuition and fees. A charge of $20.00 is assessed for each check returned unpaid by the bank. The Office of Student Assistance reserves the right to exclude students from using personal checks, and may require a student to pay by certified check or money order if an account is more than 90 days in arrears.
  • CREDIT CARDS AND WEBCHECKS: Credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover/Novus) are accepted for payment. Credit cards may be used to pay in full the semester charges, less validated Financial Aid. Payment may be made via the Web or by using the reply copy of the semester invoice. If late fees apply, they will be charged. Students may also pay via WebCheck through their MyPace portal. A personal checking or savings account from a United States financial institution is required. A student will need the account number and the routing number of the financial institution in order to process a WebCheck payment.
  • DELINQUENCY OF OUTSTANDING BALANCES: Delinquent outstanding balances, including those from installment paymen.t plans, are subject to collection by the University or, at the University's option, its designated agent Late charges and interest may be added to a delinquent outstanding balance. In addition, the actual collection expenses, including attorneys' fees, if any, incurred by the University will be added to the delinquent outstanding balance. The amount of the actual collection expenses and fees may exceed fifty percent of the delinquent outstanding balance (including any late charges and interest).

Any student who has a delinquent outstanding balance is not eligible to enroll at the University. The University will not provide copies of transcripts to or on behalf of 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.
