International students: Due to the complexity, personalization and ongoing correspondence necessary for an international student to successfully complete the 25-month Graduate School of Banking program, there is an additional fee of $400/year added to the base tuition listed above.

Cancellation/Refund Policy:

Registration fees are non-refundable. Other fees paid will be reduced by any hard dollar costs incurred by GSB and are available for refund or future use, subject to the following guidelines.

The funds must be used within 24 months of the cancellation date; they may be used for any school but cannot be applied to online seminars. Any funds not used at that point will be forfeited to GSB. If a refund is requested after fees have been placed on account with GSB, the refund will be processed based on the original cancellation date subject to the cancellation fees below.
