Undergraduate Tuition & Fees

Tuition and fee rates are subject to Board of Trustees approval.  The approval for the academic year typically takes place in late June or early July of each year.  Undergraduate tuition and fees are calculated on a per credit basis for part-time (1-11 credits) students and is charged at a flat rate for full-time (12+ credits) students.  This applies for both degree and non-degree seeking students.  In-state and out-of-state residency status is determined at the point of Admission.  In order to change your residency status, you must provide proof of residency to the Registrar’s Office.  Please see the Registrar’s Office webpage for more information.
