You must maintain good academic standing. We reserve the right to amend tuition fellowship awards if you receive other funding or change degree programs.
Please see our cost of attendance page for more information on dual degree program blended tuition rates.
This dual degree program has a non-blended tuition rate, which means the student is only charged for tuition and fees at the school you are enrolled in for that semester. Sanford tuition fellowships amounts will be disbursed in equal installments each semester in which the student is enrolled full time, and Sanford is your home institution/school. You must maintain good academic standing. We reserve the right to amend this tuition fellowship award if you receive other funding or change degree programs.
