Please review the following details about tuition and fees at the Institute.
Full-time vs. Part-time
The per credit rate is $1,820. Students who pay full-time tuition are entitled to take between eleven (11) and sixteen (16) credits in a given semester. Students who wish to take more credits may either:
- Pay for the additional credit at the current per credit rate, or
- Defer the overload credits to a subsequent semester in which they pay full-time tuition and take fewer than sixteen (16) credits.
Students who take 10 or fewer credits per semester will be charged at the per credit rate. Students taking 11 or more credits will be charged the comprehensive fee.
Student Activity Fee
If you're taking 5 or more credits each semester, you will be be charged a $80 student activity fee. This fee helps to fund Student Council as well as activities and resources to enhance your student life experience.
Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF)
California law requires that upon enrollment a fee be assessed relative to the cost of tuition (Education Code Section 94342). These fees support the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF), a special fund established by the California Legislature to reimburse students who might otherwise experience a financial loss as a result of untimely school closure. STRF fees are $.50 per $1,000 of tuition. Institutional participation is mandatory. Learn more »
If your tuition and fees are not paid in full by the 4th week of school, you will be assessed a $250 late fee. This late fee does not apply to students who are fully-funded by a third party as long as the Bursar is aware of the situation.
This student budget does not include all of the expenses you may have, such as credit card or other consumer debt and living expenses for a spouse and/or dependents. The category of personal expenses includes clothing, laundry, household supplies and entertainment. You should prepare a personal budget to anticipate your total financial needs.
