Online tuition and fees

What are my costs?

Costs vary slightly by program. In addition to textbooks, some may require additional fees. To get a general idea, however, take the number of credit hours each program requires and use the cost-per-credit-hour totals below. (Most individual courses are three credit hours per semester.) In the case of undergraduate tuition, you can realize a cost savings when you take between 12 and 18 credits in one semester. Additional charges may apply based on program*.

*For the online undergraduate and graduate programs there is an additional $50 Distance Learning Fee per credit hour. Learn More
