Herron offers fee remission to applicants at the time of acceptance into the program. Fee remission is a credit to a student’s bursar account. The credit is applied each semester after a student enrolls full-time in his or her graduate courses. After the fee remission is applied, the student is responsible for paying his or her bursar balance. Applicants are notified of fee remission offers when they receive their offers of admission.
Fee remission is available to applicants of the Art Therapy M.A., Communication Design M.Des., and Visual Art M.F.A. programs.
