I agree to the following points regarding the Master's in Computer Science,
     Specialization Option

  1. The candidate must pay for at least one of the specialization courses before his or her I-20 is extended. The specialization tuition cannot be added to the Compro bank loan and the new I-20 for the new Program will not be issued until either the full payment or first installment payment is received.

  2. Students can withdraw from the courses of Specialization program only at the end of one course or at most 2 weeks in to the next course. If a student withdraws after the 2-week deadline of the next course, they will still be charged the full tuition for that course. However, once you withdraw from the Specialization program, then the student's I-20 will be terminated immediately. The charge for each specialization course is $3,000.

  3. Health insurance is not included in the program costs.

  4. In order to remain on the Specialization option, students must maintain a 3.0 or B grade in these additional courses. Any lower grade could result in immediate dismissal from the Specialization option, and therefore termination of CPT and their I-20.

  5. Note: Anyone that applies for the specialization program with their first course in June 2021 will be grandfathered with the $2,500 tuition per course, but anyone with their first course in October 2021 or later, will be charged $3,000 per course. Please note that the new tuition is effective as from August 2021.

   By signing in the form, I hereby certified that I have carefully read the entire agreement and agree
   to all provisions.
