Calculating Your Tuition

Full-time students typically finish their degree in two semesters. In this case, your total tuition and fees are based on two semesters of the full-time rate. Alternatively, the part-time tuition and fees are calculated on a per-credit-hour basis. Because the program is 27 credit hours, your tuition would be 27 times the part-time rate.

You are considered a full-time student when enrolled in courses totaling 12 credit hours or more.
