Tuition, Fees, and Registration
Post-baccalaureate premedical students pay the University College tuition for courses taken during the evening, and a prorated portion of the full-time day tuition for courses taken during the day. Students must pay in full (cash, check, credit card) or provide an approved alternate method of payment (financial aid, employer reimbursement, military benefit, WUSTL tuition benefit or payroll deduction) prior to being registered. More information is available on our tuition + aid page. Post-baccalaureate premedical students register for all courses, day or evening, through University College.
