Graduate Program Frequently Asked Questions

What is the application fee?

                $30.00

What is the cost of tuition?

$425/per credit hour

How do I make a payment and when is it due?

Tuition payments or payment arrangements need to be made 1 week prior to the start date of class. Payments can be mailed to the Graduate Enrollment Office of NGU at 1400 Locust Hill Rd, Greer, SC 29651 or if you prefer-online through the student portal.

Once a student attends a class, the student is made official. Official registration means that the students will receive a grade for the class. The accelerated nature of most of our graduate classes prevents refunds to students after the 1st week of classes.

Where do I get books?

Books can be obtained through the NGU bookstore or online at a vendor of your choice. We make every effort to ensure that an accurate book list is posted on the REQUIRED TEXT link of your degree program page with ISBN numbers. Obtaining books through the NGU store assures on time delivery.

Where do I get financial information?

All Financial Aid questions should be addressed to the Financial Aid Department on the MAIN campus. Their number is 864-877-7057. Graduate students are eligible for student loans. Ministry students may find information about scholarship opportunities available to them under the SCHOLARSHIP link of that degree program page.

Do I need a parking permit?

No, but officially registered students may obtain a parking pass for the MAIN campus from the Graduate Enrollment Office at no cost. The student must submit a copy of their registration, insurance card, and license.

Are there any other fees that I need to be aware of?

Graduation Fee- $150, mandatory for ALL students
