Tuition proration amounts for SDM graduate students who complete thesis early or students who withdraw during the term are set out below. All amounts are in US dollars.

Tuition for early completion of the thesis will be prorated based on the low tuition rate. SDM students must have fulfilled 24 units of thesis from the previous semester in order to qualify for SDM tuition proration.

Prorated tuition for early thesis completion will be granted only if both of the following conditions are met:

  1. The student has completed the required minimum 24 units of thesis credit in previous terms and is registered for only 1 (one) thesis credit in the term in which he or she graduates.
  2. The student was registered for thesis credits as a regular graduate student in the term prior to the term in which he or she graduates.

There is one exception to the second item above: For a fall term completion, if the student was not registered for thesis in the previous summer, but was registered for thesis units as a regular graduate student in the previous spring, the tuition proration will be a minimum of 50 percent of the total tuition if the thesis is completed any time in the first half of the fall term.

The date of proration is determined by the date when the thesis advisor confirms the work was completed, but cannot be more than 15 days prior to when the date is reported to the registrar.

Use figures from the line if the date is shown; otherwise, use figures from the preceding line. For example, if the date is October 28, use that line; if the date is October 27, use the October 25 line.
