TUITION and FEES

Tuition

The basic undergraduate tuition rate covers the normal student load and is increased if the student carries an overload. Private instruction, e.g., music lessons, carries extra charges.

For tuition charges in special programs and sessions, see announcements that are published concerning these components of the University’s academic program.

The following list of charges is effective for the academic year 2012-2013.

Undergraduate students carrying both undergraduate and graduate courses will be charged tuition at the rate in effect for undergraduate credits taken and appropriate fees. For example, tuition for a student carrying a total of 15 credits, of which 3 are graduate and 12 are undergraduate, would be charged at the $19,990.00 rate.

Undergraduate students taking graduate level coursework that is priced at a special level will be billed separately for these courses. Students should check with their advisors and/or the appropriate school’s department for more details on their course pricing requirements.

Full-time fees will be assessed according to student classification as an undergraduate or graduate.

The University reserves the right to change without notice tuition, fees, room and all other charges at the beginning of any academic year, and the right to change activities and board fees at the beginning of any semester.

Students involved in state contract programs should contact the appropriate school/college to ascertain the state tuition charge per credit hour that they are expected to pay.

Fees

Some fees depend upon full-time status. This is usually determined by the sum total of semester credits carried by the student in all divisions or enrollment in certain special programs that are classified as full-time regardless of credit load. Intersession classes are included with regular fall and spring semester classes in determining the student’s full- or part-time status.  This determination will also result in the billing of required fees.  Fees are subject to change.

Undergraduate students are classified full-time if they enroll in 12 or more credits in a regular semester or five (5) or more credits in a summer session or if they are enrolled in a special program which is classified full-time regardless of credit load.

Graduate students are classified full-time if they enroll in nine (9) or more credits in a regular semester or five (5) or more credits in a summer session, or if they are enrolled in dissertation credits that are classified as full-time.
