Tuition and Costs

Tuition is charged by credit hour for all programs of study. The tuition rate is determined by course type. Fees are charged per credit hour or per semester depending on the fee. Course-specific fees are charged for certain courses. Tuition and fees are assessed at the time a student registers for courses.
