Review the full cost of attendance for specific dollar amount breakdowns.

Deposit:  All New and Readmitted cadets are required to pay a $300 deposit.  This deposit is returned to the cadet, less any deductions for damages or unpaid obligations and without interest, upon graduation or termination of the cadetship.

Health Insurance is required for all International cadets.  Please contact the Office of International Programs for specific coverage information.  Amount included is an estimate for the 2023-24 academic year.

Late Fee:  A late fee of $100 or 10% of the unpaid balance, whichever is less, will be assessed for failure to pay tuition and fees as required.

Other costs payable by the cadet include textbooks, supplies, automobile registration, and non-issue clothing.  The cadet must pay for such items with cash, check, or bank credit card at the time of purchase. Cadets must satisfy all financial obligations to the Institute for the past semesters or terms before they will be allowed to register for any succeeding semester or term.  In addition, the Institute reserves the right to hold grades, credits, transcripts and diplomas until all financial obligations to the Institute are satisfied.
