Students are assessed tuition and fees each semester on the basis of their level, class, residency status, and number of credits carried. Undergraduate students taking 12 – 18 credit hours will be charged a flat tuition rate. Tuition is charged on a per credit hour basis for undergraduate students taking fewer than 12 credit hours. If a student has more than 18 credits, the flat tuition rate plus the regular per credit hour rate for each credit hour over 18 applies. Units are listed below in footnote.
Certain courses may be assessed additional section fees, such as certain kinesiology courses, that are not reflected in the Tuition, Fees, and Student Voted Taxes tables below. Further information regarding additional section fees can be found in the Schedule of Courses in the course description content.
If there is any question of the student's right to an in-state classification, it is the student's responsibility to contact the Office of the Registrar at least one month before enrolling.
As amended by the Board of Trustees in the 2021-22 Budget Guidelines. Amounts subject to change for 2022-23 and future years.
