Tuition and Financial Aid


The off-campus programs are offered at a significant discount compared to traditional undergraduate tuition rates.  Additionally, students who have already completed required coursework prior to admission take fewer courses and pay less for the program.  

Note that the cost chart below is based on current 2015-2016 academic year tuition rates and fees. Tuition and fees are subject to an increase every July 1st.
