Any cost associated with other transactions with the University are not part of the fellowship and are a personal obligation.

  • These costs might include adding or dropping a class, fees associated with maintaining continuous enrollment before the comprehensive exam, etc.
  • A student who drops a class or withdraws from the University is solely responsible for the tuition and other fees associated with the transaction. For example, if a student withdraws from a lass in mid-term, the withdrawal fee and the tuition cost previously covered by the Keck Fellowship becomes the personal obligation of the student.
