    Tuition, Financial Aid & Scholarships Calendar

    Use this calendar to view tuition due dates, financial aid deadlines, and scholarship application periods.

    Financial Aid Application
    - Start 3 Months Prior to Tuition Due Date
    We recommend that you complete your FAFSA and submit all your application materials listed on the financial aid checklist at least 3 months before your tuition payment is due.  Federal and institution processing of your application takes weeks, and additional documentation or corrections may be required throughout the process.

    You are responsible for timely tuition payment, regardless of the progress of your financial aid application. You will need to renew your FAFSA and your financial aid application each year you are enrolled at Fielding. 

    Tuition Due Dates

    New Students
    Initial tuition is due by the Enrollment Deadline listed on the Admission Calendar for your program.

    Returning Students
    Regardless of your financial aid status, you will receive a tuition bill from the Student Accounts Office one month before your tuition is due. You may view, print and pay using your statement on WebAdvisor.

    Loan Disbursement Date - Your Loan Funds are Received in Installments

    Each loan payment is scheduled for the beginning of a tuition billing cycle.  When budgeting your education funds, please note that student loans will usually be paid to you in installments throughout the academic year.  You must be active, registered, and making satisfactory academic progress in order to be eligible to receive a federal student aid disbursement each term.

    Your Award Letter on WebAdvisor will show:
    • the types of aid awarded
    • the anticipated disbursement amounts
    • the anticipated disbursement dates
    • the loan period - renew your loans before the end date
    • how to make changes to your award
    • your cost of attendance budget and need calculations

    If you need assistance or have questions, please contact the Financial Aid Office.

    The best graduate school for adult learners.
