Resident Tuition, Fee and Tax Rates for
Summer Semester 2021

Students are assessed tuition and fees each semester on the basis of their level, class, residency status, and number of credits carried. Undergraduate students taking 12 – 18 credit hours will be charged a flat tuition rate. Tuition is charged on a per credit hour basis for undergraduate students taking fewer than 12 credit hours. If a student has more than 18 credits, the flat tuition rate plus the regular per credit hour rate for each credit hour over 18 applies. Units are listed below in footnote 1.

Lifelong Education students are not assessed Student Taxes. Lifelong Education students in certain online courses may be assessed additional tuition fees of up to $150 per credit hour which are not reflected below.

NOTE: Certain courses may be assessed additional section fees, such as certain kinesiology courses, that are not reflected in the Tuition, Fees, and Student Voted Taxes tables below. Further information regarding additional section fees can be found in the Schedule of Courses in the course description content.
