The enrollment deposit will be applied first to student health insurance and the international fee, if applicable. The remainder of the enrollment deposit will then be applied to tuition.

Cushing will refund ESL/Academic Support fees on a pro-rata basis if a student fulfills the program requirements during the academic year.

The Health Center Fee covers services provided by the health center to students, such as those services rendered by the nurses on duty, medication nurse as needed, a nurse practitioner, the medical director, and other staff during day and night. The fee also covers basic health assessments and remedies administered by the center, including first aid and emergency care. Please note: this fee does not cover insurance. All students must provide proof of health insurance coverage with a US-based company. Click here for more information about our student health insurance policy at Cushing.

Some science and art courses carry additional fees for supplies.

International Enrollment and Health Insurance fees are due at the same time as the Enrollment Deposit.
