Each student is assessed charges each semester on the basis of the credit value (or credit value equivalent of zero credit hour carrier courses) of all courses carried and state residence. Charges will be assessed on a credit hour basis, except for graduate-professional student fees which are assessed on a semester basis and some graduate student fees which are assessed on a semester or program basis and differentiate between "Core" and "Professional and Other" units.
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.
