Tuition Rates and Schedules

Student selection policy is designed to accept only those students the Fellowship Council Admissions Committee believes have the ability and desire to complete the academic components of the program.

Clinical Rotation Fee

Enrolled Fellows will be required to rotate to an ASPMF clinical site for a period of two weeks or 80-100 contact hours at a cost of $3,000. A one-time $500 MTSA administrative fee will also be assessed for the processing of this clinical rotation fee. The clinical fee will be applied to the students account during the second and third semesters. This will assist the processing of funds for those receiving aid. The actual due date for the clinical fees is $1,500 at the due date of the students second semester tuition charge and $2,000 at the due date of the students third semester tuition charge. Any additional rotational weeks at an ASPMF clinical sites will be associated with additional clinical and licensure fees, travel expenses, and malpractice insurance premiums that are the sole responsibility of the enrolled Fellow.

Tuition Due Dates

Tuition is to be paid 2-weeks prior to the first day of class. Those due dates are listed in the provided tuition schedule and will be listed in the statement sent by the MTSA Business Office prior to the start of each semester. Failure to pay by the due date listed may jeopardize the students enrollment in the learning management system.

Should a Fellow, who is simultaneously enrolled in the APSMF and the DNAP-C programs, decide to withdrawal from one of the programs, the discounted-tuition rate will be lost.

Furthermore, the Fellow is responsible for retroactively paying for the difference in tuition of previous payments.

The format and schedule for the tuition and fees collection periods is subject to change, based on potential program schedule changes and recommendations from outside agencies, to which MTSA is accountable. The tuition for each class is set in advance by the Board of Trustees and may fluctuate from year to year. MTSA reserves the right to change tuition and fees on a year- to-year basis. Fellows should make their financial plans accordingly.

Please contact the MTSA Business Office with any questions you may have regarding tuition.

Fees throughout the Program May Include:

  • 3% Credit or Debit Card Fee: if a Fellow uses a credit or debit card to pay tuition or purchase any item through the school.
  • Delinquent tuition fee: A $100 late fee will be assessed on delinquent tuition payments for each MTSA business day (Mon-Thurs) that the tuition payment is delinquent. Therefore, if tuition is due on one Monday, but is not paid until the following Monday, an additional $400 delinquent tuition fee is levied.

NOTE: If the Fellow has chosen not to utilize Electronic Funds Transfer, it is the Fellow’s responsibility to make arrangements with appropriate personnel to make tuition payments on a timely basis.

Refund Policy

(Refer to MTSA Policy 5.1.106 for Withdrawal Procedures)

MTSA will permit any student/Fellow to cancel their enrollment agreement within 72 hours of the enrollment day.  Should a cancellation occur MTSA will refund 100% of the first tuition payment that was made by the student/Fellow, minus the deposit submitted to hold the student/Fellow position in class. Students/Fellows who have been given a medical withdrawal are assessed and adjusted no differently than other withdrawals.

Pro Rata Refund

If a student/Fellow withdraws or is terminated from the program after the period allowed for cancellation of the enrollment agreement and has completed 60% or less of the period of attendance (semester), the student/Fellow is entitled to a partial prorated refund.  MTSA will calculate whether a tuition refund is due, and if so, remit a refund within 45 days following the student’s/Fellow’s withdrawal or termination. For students receiving funds through the Federal Student Aid Program, unearned funds will be returned to the aid programs in the order required under Federal Law.  For students/Fellows receiving funds through a non-federal loan, the VA, or sponsor, unearned funds will be returned to the lender or agency.  Any remaining balance will be paid to the student/Fellow.  The pro rata percentage is based on days of attendance within the period of attendance.  Students/Fellows who stop attending all classes but do not complete the official withdrawal process could owe a repayment of Title IV funds.  Please contact the Office of Financial Aid (615-732-7884) for more information.
