The University of the South accepts a student only for an entire summer term. The full charges for the term are due and payable in advance upon entrance, and payment of all charges is an integral part of the student's registration.
A student is officially enrolled for the summer term immediately upon completion of registration. If a student, after registration, is dismissed or withdraws for any cause except illness, he or she is not entitled to any refund of the sum paid to the University or to cancellation of any sum due to the University.
Refunds for a withdrawal because of illness are figured by prorating fees for the period from the date of withdrawal to the end of the session. The amounts to be prorated are one-half of the tuition and room charges and three-fourths of the board charge. No refund is made for the activity fee or any other fee.
Notice of withdrawal and requests for refund must be made in writing addressed to the Director of Summer School and must be accompanied by a written notice from the University Health Office stating that the illness-withdrawal is recommended.

1. The student's final bill may be prepared during registration and payment in full of all fees is required at that time. Pre-registered students will be billed by mail and may settle their accounts by mail prior to registration day, though registration is still required of all students. Students who do not pre-register should estimate the total amount from the table above and be prepared to write a check on registration day. A student who registers or pays fees later than the day and time designated must pay a late fee of $35. Satisfactory handling of a student's account is necessary to obtain a transcript of grades.
2. The Student Activity Fee is required of all students. It includes tennis privileges on University courts, swimming privileges at the indoor pool, use of athletic fields, use of the Bishop's Common facilities, and participation privileges in University-sponsored, special recreational activities.
students pay the post office fee.
4. The Medical Fee provides services of the University Health Office, but prescriptions, casts, splints, and medical expenses such as X-ray, surgery, hospitalization, and treatment are the responsibility of the student and his or her family.
Students must pay cash, checks, or use personal credit cards for books, supplies, or other expenses.
Students should take precautions to protect personal belongings from theft or other loss. University insurance does not cover personal losses; however, the family homeowner insurance may provide insurance for these losses.
Any student responsible for damage to property shall pay the cost of repairs or replacement. All charges for damage to property become part of the student's account for the term. A student is requested to report damages of property immediately to the Physical Plant Services and to assume payment for repairs if he or she is the person responsible.
A student using a personal automobile for a class field trip or other University business should have vehicle liability insurance, since University insurance does not cover the vehicle, owner, driver, or passengers if an accident occurs.
Checks may be cashed at the cashier's office. Families may wish to consider having a checking account for the student at a bank in the Sewanee area or at a bank in the student's hometown.
Special arrangements will be made available for a student who is unable, by reason of physical handicap, to go to the cashier's office.
