NOTE: Tuition is the primary charge for educational services leading to degree credit. Tuition is determined by a number of factors, including the student’s residency status, the number of credit hours for which the student is registered, the student’s course of study, and the student’s classification level.

Please be aware majors in the College of Engineering require an additional supplemental fee. You can find that information HERE under “description of fees” as well as the link for tuition and fee rates for current and upcoming terms.
