Tuition & Fees

Graduate Bulletin



The Board of Regents establishes tuition and other fees at the University of Guam. The charges listed here are those in effect at the time of publication and are subject to change by the board.

A non-refundable application fee must accompany all applications for admission. No application will be considered if the fee has not been paid, and the applicant will not be permitted to register for any course.

Fanuchånan 2020
Fañomnåkan 2021

Note: With Resolution No. 19-41, the Board of Regents approved an up to 5% tuition adjustment effective Fanuchånan 2020 with increases up to 5% each semester until it reaches a 30% total increase. However, President Krise has exercised his authority in the resolution to defer the tuition increase for Fañomnåkan 2021, so rates remain the same as the Fanuchånan 2020 semester. 


OTHER SPECIAL TUITION RATES

  • Graduate students who enroll in undergraduate courses for any reason will be charged the graduate rate.
  • The fee for auditing classes or for Credit-by-Examination is the cost that would be charged if the student enrolled for a regular class.

The University will charge interest of 8.5% per annum on all debts not received by the payment deadline. Students will have to pay fees if their account is sent to a Collection Agency. Matters relating to the student’s financial obligations to the University should be referred to the Bursar’s Office (735-2940/3/5). The University may report students with unpaid accounts to a credit bureau and/or the Guam Department of Revenue & Taxation.

TRANSCRIPT FEE

The University will only release transcripts to students who have met all their financial obligations. The first copy is provided free. Additional copies may be obtained at $15 per copy. Students may obtain copies of their transcripts in one hour when necessary by paying a special service charge of $20 in addition to transcript fees. (Note: The service charge is assessed per request, not per transcript. Example: If a student needs three transcripts and requests one-hour service, the total charges will be $65 ($45 for three transcripts plus $20 service charge.)

Members of the U.S. Armed Forces should consult their Education Office regarding support for tuition and fees.

Students who are waiting for financial aid or have not yet paid for their tuition and fees are still financially obligated by the above regulations.

Students who do not officially drop or withdraw from class(es) within the time periods above and still owe tuition and fees, are liable for payment and will be billed accordingly. Therefore, it is crucial to officially drop or withdraw from class(es) in a timely manner.

Registration and Course Fees are not refundable except for courses canceled by the University. Refund checks will be mailed four to six weeks after a student drops a class or withdraws from the University.
