Fees: (GSBMS, SHSP $150) (MD, DPT, MS Speech $0). Dual-degree students must pay the fee for both programs. There is no fee for "reapplying".

The graduation fee covers graduation-related services that you receive even if you do not attend the ceremony or complete requirements.  If requirements are not met, the fee will not be charged again when you reapply.  This non-refundable fee will be applied at the time we process your application and must be paid by the application deadline stated above. Please go into the TouroOne portal to make payment. Failure to pay the fee will create a hold on your student account, preventing registration and the release of your diploma and transcripts.
