Online is making it easier to calculate your education costs. The rate for students enrolled in an undergrad online degree program is $400.00 per credit hour. The rate for students enrolled in a graduate online degree program is $500.00 per credit hour. This rate includes mandated fees and tuition. No other university fees will be billed with the exception of course and professional program fees where appropriate.

When you register for classes, the course cost will automatically be added to your fee bill. Payments can conveniently be made online once the fee bill posts within 24 hours of registration.

The Semester Fees can be found here.

Students enrolled in online math or medical laboratory science courses will be required to schedule two proctored exams during the course in which they enrolled.
