Tuition & Fees

We offer one of the state’s most affordable educational values and our banded tuition helps keep you on track to graduate in four years or less. As a full-time undergraduate student, you’ll pay a flat rate for tuition which allows you to take between 12 and 18 credit hours. If you maximize the number of credits you take each semester, you can save big!
