Just got spoke with Financial Aid...since the MFA in Creative Producing requires a 6 credit pre semester in August you have to pay out of pocket because Financial Aid is disbursed at the start of the Fall Semester in September. As of 2017 the tuition is 1,158.00 per credit. So that's $6984 out of pocket. I'm hoping the person I spoke to was wrong and had no idea what they were talking about.

EDIT: I spoke to the film office and they said that person I spoke to had no idea what they are talking about. You won't have to pay out of pocket, they just add it to your fall semester charges and you can wait for the loan disbursement to pay it.
