University Graduate Expenses
2023-2024 - DeLand Campus

College of Arts and Sciences and School of Business Administration


The University reserves the right to adjust the above expenses at the beginning of each term.

Identification Cards (ID Cards)

ID cards are issued for new students at the beginning of each semester. These cards are used for meals, student discounts at local vendors, checking out books in the library, purchasing parking decals, a declining balance in some instances, and much more. If this card is lost or stolen, it must be reported to the ID/Meal Card office immediately. There is a $20 charge for each re-print (no matter the reason). This charge can be paid for by cash, check, or debit/credit card (Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, or Discover).


All students enrolled at Stetson University are expected to have adequate health insurance to cover them while attending the University.  In an effort to make affordable coverage available to those who may not have any insurance, or those who have limited insurance, a student accident and sickness health plan will be offered to provide quality health care to Stetson students at a reasonable cost. The Student Insurance Plan policy runs annually from the fall semester to the end of the summer semester, and the Annual Plan will provide continuous coverage for that policy year, including when students are off campus or home during campus breaks, as per the policy terms. Semester-only plans may also be available.

For more information regarding the student insurance plan and how to enroll, please go to the ‘Health Services and Insurance’ Link on the Stetson Intranet.

International Students

Please see insurance requirements under the International Students section of this catalog.

University Bookstore

The bookstore accepts cash, personal checks with a student I.D., MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express credit cards.

Student Billing

Tuition assessments will be based on the student's course load as of the last day of the add/drop period, excluding full withdrawals. The last day to drop a course without financial penalty is specified in the Academic Calendar. The bill must be paid in full before registration or establish Stetson's Monthly Payment Plan unless other arrangements have been made with the Bursar's Office. The University accepts cash and checks in the office. Credit and/or debit cards and e-checks are accepted online. All accounts must be paid in full for a student to receive a diploma or request a transcript.

Policy on Student Accounts Receivable

Financial arrangements for the satisfaction of student account balances must be completed prior to the first day of classes.

Late Payment Fee Policy

Late fees for the Fall/Spring semesters will be calculated based on 2.5% of the outstanding balance on student accounts for Graduate Programs. This percentage will be charged once per semester as long as an outstanding balance remains. Students who enroll in Stetson’s Monthly Payment Plan (MPP) will be assessed fees according to the MPP plan.  Please contact the Gulfport/Tampa campuses for their late payment fee policy on College of Law Juris Doctorate Programs.

The Bursar’s Office and other university offices will no longer waive late fees.  Late fees will not be waived for students anticipating financial aid payments.  Pending financial aid must be Memo/Authorized to be applied towards the outstanding balance.  The balance due on the account is the student's responsibility.

Graduation - Book Charges

Upon graduation, balances must be paid in full in order to receive or access transcripts or a diploma.

Graduate degree candidates are required to file an application for graduation with the Office of the Registrar, no later than the graduation application deadline of the semester in which they expect to complete their degree requirements. Upon receipt of the Application for Graduation, a fee in the amount of $100 is applied to the student’s account.  A late fee in the amount of $100 will also be assessed for students who do not apply within the application date deadline (see the Academic Calendar for the exact date).  Caps, gowns, announcements and accessories for graduation commencement are ordered through the University Bookstore.  Graduates are required to be present for Commencement unless authorized to graduate “In Absentia” by the Registrar.

Students may not charge books to their student account, except for fully-funded scholarship students.  Please contact the Office of Student Financial Assistance for assistance with your bookstore voucher.

If you have questions, you may contact the Office of the Bursar by phone at 386-822-7050, by e-mail at stuaccts@stetson.edu, or by visiting a student accounts representative in the OneStop Office.
