Note 1:  Full-time students are undergraduates who enroll in 12 hours or more of course work during Fall and Spring terms.  The full-time tuition rate applies to undergraduate students taking 12-18 credit hours (either exclusively on-campus or a combination of on-campus and distance learning).  An additional per credit hour fee equivalent to the per hour tuition will be charged to undergraduate students enrolled in more than 18 credit hours.

Note 2:  Full-time undergraduate students enrolled in any combination of both on-campus and distance learning courses will be assessed an additional Distance Learning Course fee per credit hour for each distance learning credit hour in which they are enrolled.  (e.g. If a student is enrolled in 9 credit hours of on-campus courses and 3 credit hours of distance learning courses, the fee assessment would be the full-time tuition rate plus an additional Distance Learning Course fee for 3 credit hours.  If a student is enrolled in 12 credit hours of on-campus courses and 6 credit hours of distance learning courses, the fee assessment would be the full-time tuition rate plus an additional Distance Learning Course fee for 6 credit hours.)  Distance Learning Course fees are non-refundable after the University's refund policy is less than 100%.  The Undergraduate Distance Learning Course Fee of $150.00 per credit hour was eliminated for one-year (Fall 2020 and Spring 2021) in response to the COVID-19 global health crisis.

Note 3Graduate tuition and fees are assessed per credit hour based upon the course (i.e., on-campus or distance learning).  There is no full-time graduate rate. 

Note 4:  The Distance Learning course rate is for all part-time students, regardless of residency, enrolling in on-line, web-based courses.  Students enrolled exclusively in distance learning courses will be assessed the distance learning per hour rate regardless of the number of hours enrolled.  There is no full-time distance learning rate. 

Tuition and fees will be assessed and available for review on TopNet in mid-July for the fall semester and mid-November for the spring semester.
