Tuition & Fees FAQ 


Is the tuition for internet courses more than face-to-face courses?

No, the tuition rate is the same for internet and face-to-face courses.  However, beginning with the fall 2016 semester there will be an additional $10 per credit hour online course fee for academic courses delivered with at least 50% of the instruction online.

If I previously received the Non-Resident Academic Scholarship, what will my net tuition cost be under the new tuition model?

To simplify tuition pricing and scholarship awards while maintaining affordability for non-resident students, the following changes were implemented with the fall 2016 semester:

  • Reduced the non-resident tuition rate as previously planned by 40%
  • Discontinued the Non-Resident Academic Scholarship

Although we are not renewing the Non-Resident Academic Scholarship, the net savings to the student as a result of this change is $265 per semester or $530 annually.  To illustrate the cost savings to the student, a comparison between the previous model and the new model is presented below.
