Tuition and Fees

Tuition fees are based on the student taking 12 credit hours for undergraduate program and 9 credit hours for graduate program in the fall and spring. Summer only includes living expenses since it is not required to attend in the summer. The Summer insurance fee is not required unless the student begins courses in the Summer session.
