Tuition and Fees for Online Courses

E-Tuition Rate

The University has implemented an E-Tuition rate for fully online courses (distance learning programs). This rate replaces in-state tuition and out-of-state tuition for online courses. The change impacts all fully online courses for undergraduate, graduate, and certificate programs.

  • Students who register for online courses only (no on-campus courses) are responsible for the mandatory Technology Fee and Board of Regents Institutional Fee.
  • Students who opt to take one or more online courses in conjunction with on-campus courses will be responsible for all mandatory and any course-related fees. In addition, the eTuition rate will be assessed for each online course registered, no matter how many courses you are taking.

Other Fees

Admission Application Fees

* The application fee must accompany initial application. Acceptance of the application fee does not constitute acceptance of the student to the university. The application fee is non-refundable.

Late Registration Fee $54.00

A late registration fee is charged to all students who do not complete registration by the close of business during the regular registration period. Registration is completed by registering for class(es) and paying all fees due on your student account. Students who have completed registration during the regular registration period and subsequently add classes during late registration will not be charged a late registration fee. Students having checks for tuition returned for non-payment are charged the late registration fee. A late payment fee will be added if a student's tuition, fees, meal plan and housing are not paid during the regular registration period. If a student receives financial aid, they must pay the balance of what they owe after the deducting of any amount of financial aid.  This includes students who receive the Hope Scholarship.  Please contact the Bursar’s Office if you need assistance. This fee is non-refundable.

Graduation Fee $63

This fee is payable by each candidate for graduation when the graduation application is submitted (two semesters prior to graduation).  If the candidate is receiving a second degree at the same graduation ceremonies, an additional $10 is due.  The full $63 is charged for the first degree awarded at a subsequent graduation ceremony.  A fee of $25 is charged for a replacement diploma. These fees are non-refundable.
