Tuition

To inquire regarding tuition, fees, and payments, contact the Finance Office.

Tuition and fees are payable in U.S. currency and are due on the published due date for each semester. There is no difference in tuition rates for in‐state or out‐of‐state students. Tuition rates for each new incoming cohort are assessed annually, and may differ from the currently published rates, as they are subject to change without notice. Most programs have a cost per credit rate lock once a student is enrolled, but if a student defers to a later cohort, they may be subject to an increased tuition rate.

Methods of Payment

Tuition and fee payments may be made by phone, by regular mail, online, or in person with a check, credit card, or money order.

Late Payment Fees

Tuition payments that are made after the published due date for a semester incur a late payment fee of $100.00.

 

Locked-in Tuition

Rocky Mountain University offers guaranteed tuition rates while completing your graduate degree. Our programs have a cost per credit rate lock once you are enrolled. Locked-in tuition helps you see your total cost from start to finish. If you defer to a later cohort start, you may be subject to an increased rate.
