Academic Credit by Examination
Students who wish to attempt academic credit by examination shall be charged a testing fee of $50.00. An official receipt from the Business Office must be presented prior to taking the examination. Acceptance of the fee from a student does not imply that the credit by examination has been approved by the university. All requests for credit by examination are subject to approval by the academic department and by the registrar.
Students who are currently enrolled are charged a transportation fee to cover the cost of the maintenance of the transportation infrastructure including parking lots, sidewalks, overhead covers, and other amenities, and may register a vehicle for parking on campus without further cost. For additional information and a copy of university parking regulations, contact the University Police Department.
Every student receiving a degree must pay a graduation fee of $40. The final due date for payment of this fee is published in the registration bulletin. Students who fail to observe the petitioning deadline are charged a late fee of $60.00 (in addition to the $40.00 fee).
International Student Health Insurance
Based on the guidelines provided by the American College Health Association and NAFSA: the Association of International Educators, Southern Polytechnic State University requires international students on F-1 and J-1 visas to purchase the endorsed SPSU International Student Insurance policy. Payment of this fee is mandatory and should be paid directly to the Office of Business and Finance along with payment of tuition and miscellaneous fees. Purchase of this insurance policy is mandatory each semester.
