Undergraduate
and Graduate Tuition and Fees

Tuition and Fee Finder

Tuition calculation based on the expected number of terms to complete as a full-time student. The number of terms varies based on the program of study, the rate at which the student completes the program of study, availability of eligible prior learning credits, prerequisites required, and repeated courses.

Due to decimal restrictions in the Tuition and Fee Finder, the cost per credit is rounded up prior to determining the total tuition amount. Veterans per-credit tuition for graduate programs is calculated as $362 or $418, but is actually $361.20 and $417.10.
