Advising Handbook


The University of Rochester’s eight-semester (128 credit) tuition regulation states that a student must pay for the equivalent of eight semesters of tuition. Credits in excess of 16 per semester used for the purpose of accelerated graduation or completion of graduation requirements must be paid for at the tuition rate in effect at the time the credits were taken. Assessment of these charges is made during a student’s last semester. Additional financial aid resources are not normally available. (Note that Advanced Placement credit and courses transferred to the student’s record from outside the College prior to completion of academic requirements may be used toward fulfillment of this regulation.)

Students admitted in the Fall of 2013 and later should refer to the section on Enrollment Policy. The above statement is not applicable to them.
