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.
