Undergraduate Tuition

Subject to change without notice.

Undergraduate on-campus tuition is banded at twelve (12) credits, meaning that no additional tuition is charged for registered credits above that amount in a particular term. This does not apply to off-campus or graduate credits, which continue to be charged on a per credit basis.

Note: Resident and non-resident tuition rates are the same within each of the tuition categories below.


FULL-TIME TUITION
(12-18 credits) is $3,054.00 per semester.
(19+ credits) is $3,054.00 plus $213.75 per additional semester credit over 18 credits.

PART-TIME TUITION
(1-11 credits) is $213.75 per semester credit.

Additional fees apply (see below).

Payment of Tuition

Tuition and fees should be paid in full no later than the first day of the term or the student will be dropped from all classes.

However, a student will not be dropped for non-payment if any one of the following criteria is met:

  1. The student has applied for financial aid and the university has received the FAFSA results from the U.S. Department of Education.
  2. The student has made a minimum down payment to tuition and fees of 15 percent or $300, whichever is less, and has an active payment plan contract.
  3. The student has a scholarship or third party award that meets the minimum down payment rule.
  4. The student is enrolled in the PSEO program.
  5. The student’s tuition and fees are deferred for special hardship cases such as sudden illness, a death in the family, or natural disaster.
