Tuition Details

The per credit rate is $1,715. *Students who pay full-time tuition are entitled to take between twelve (12) and sixteen (16) credits in a given semester. Students who wish to take more credits may either:

  1. Pay for the additional credit at the current full per credit rate, or
  2. Defer the overload credits to a subsequent semester in which they pay full-time tuition and take fewer than sixteen (16) credits.

Students who defer overload charges without an equivalent underload in a subsequent semester will be required to pay the current full per credit rate for the overload credits remaining when they register for their final semester.

Students who take 11 or fewer credits per semester will be charged at the per credit rate (students taking 12 or more credits will be charged the comprehensive fee).
