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.

TUITION BY PROGRAM

Tuition is due two weeks after the start of each semester.

Please note that for each incoming cohort the cost per credit will not increase for the duration of the program. It will be locked in at the current rate.
