Nursing

Tuition & Fees

Tuition amounts are set by the university at the college and program level (undergraduate, graduate or professional). The course of study itself also could require specialized fees. Tuition is the combined amount for instructional, general, technology, and campus life or distance learning fees as well as appropriate non-resident surcharges.

Along with the overviews below, more details on specific fees for your program, special course fees, and distance learning program fees are also available via the Office of the Bursar.

The estimated total cost of 27 nursing credits in UC's RN to BSN Online program is $13,852 to $17,197 (based on academic year 2022-2023 tuition and fees). 

The total cost estimate is calculated on the lower end by adding together two semester's tuition and fees (for students pursuing their degree full time). The total cost estimate on the higher end is calculated by multiplying the tuition cost and program fee by 27, which is the total number of nursing credit hours required for the program. This estimated range does not include any general education courses that students may need to complete as part of the program.

Graduate Tuition & Fees

Graduate tuition rates apply to students in the Accelerated Direct-Entry MSN, MSN, DNP, PhD and certificate programs.
