Registration for Graduate students will be processed in the Office of the Registrar. All current students are expected to register on the dates designated on the University Graduate calendar. A new student may not register for classes until officially admitted to a Malone Graduate Program. Completion of Financial Aid forms and company reimbursement policies, if applicable, must be on file or payment is required by the due date to complete the registration. Invoices are mailed to students approximately two weeks before the payment due date.
All charges are due and payable at the time of registration (full payment) for each semester unless one of the following alternative payment plans is selected:
Monthly Payment Plan
Total tuition and fees will be divided into equal monthly payments within the term/semester enrolled. Equal monthly payments are due the tenth of each month during the term/semester. A service fee will be assessed per semester.
Business Reimbursement Plan
This plan allows the student to defer payment of tuition that is reimbursable by a student’s employer. To qualify, the student must provide a copy of the employer’s reimbursement policy and verification of eligibility. There is a participation fee each semester. Tuition costs that are not reimbursable by the company must be paid by the student using one of the payment plans listed. Company reimbursement payments are due within thirty days of the scheduled completion of each course. The student can be held responsible for payment if company reimbursement is delayed beyond thirty days of the scheduled completion of each course.

To qualify for a student loan the graduate student must:
- Be degree-seeking or seeking teacher licensure for the classroom. Note: principal, counseling, and other administrative licensure students are eligible for private education loans only. For more private loan information, go to www.malone.edu/loans and click on Private Student Loans.
- Be enrolled for at least 5 semester hours (not including Graduate Workshop hours) for degree-seeking students and at least 6 semester hours for students seeking teacher licensure.
- Not be in default on a federal student loan or owe a refund on a grant.
- Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.ed.gov and submit to the Financial Aid Office a completed Malone Financial Aid Application along with a copy of your employer’s tuition reimbursement policy. The deadline for application is the first day of the month before the semester begins (April 1 for Summer, August 1 for Fall, December 1 for Spring).
- Holders of previous federal student loans must be enrolled for at least 5 semester hours.
One fourth of tuition is payable at registration if financial aid documents are not received in a timely manner. Reimbursement will be made if the loan is fully disbursed and there is available credit.
Tuition and other charges are subject to change without notice. The University will not release transcripts, diplomas, or teaching licenses until all accounts are settled. All charges must be paid in full before graduation. All accounts must be paid in full before enrollment in another semester is permitted. Interest may be charged on any unpaid balance. Malone University reserves the right to use collection agencies and/or take appropriate legal action to collect any unpaid tuition and fees owed to the University. All associated collection costs will be the responsibility of the student.
