Billing for Part-time Students in Full-time Divisions

The Billing and Receivables System (BRS) differentiates full-time divisions from part-time divisions. In the simplest terms, students in full-time divisions are billed a flat full-time rate, regardless of the number of courses they are taking. Students in part-time divisions are billed according to the number of courses or credits they are taking.

The full-time divisions are:

- College of Arts and Sciences

- Nursing Undergraduate

- Wharton Undergraduate

- Engineering Undergraduate

- Wharton Graduate, MBA Program

- Graduate School of Fine Arts

- Law School

- School of Social Work

- School of Dental Medicine

- School of Medicine

- School of Veterinary Medicine

- dual MD/Ph.D. programs

- Executive MSE program, Graduate School of Engineering

Sometimes students in full-time divisions may be billed as part-time students, with the approval of their respective deans. Students in a full-time division, to be billed as part-time students are indicated, by changing the SPEC TUIT RATE flag on Screen 111.

This procedure is useful only before the end of the drop period. After that time, you must adjust the student's tuition manually by sending Student Financial Services a billing adjustment form.
