Tuition and Fees

Tuition and fees are assessed to student accounts near the start of each term. The amount of the tuition and fees are determined in accordance with the student’s enrollment status, the number of semester hours in which the student is enrolled, and the type of course. Some courses may assess additional charges for course materials such as lab supply fees and textbooks that are specific to that course.
