Any student who is not full time in fall who enrolls in January and simultaneously confirms for spring, will not be billed January charges. However, if spring classes are dropped prior to the 60% point in the semester, January charges will be in effect and will be billed to the student’s account.

Summer school tuition is offered at a reduced rate per credit hour. A non-refundable $100 deposit is required to register for summer courses.

Tuition covers the costs of instruction and the entire complement of University Academic Services. Specific course fees may be added for individualized instruction, laboratory supplies, transportation, etc. January Term travel fees and Summer School charges are published in separate bulletins. Students should contact the faculty member leading a January Term or Summer Session travel course for advance payment deadlines.

Semester Off-Campus Study Programs: Students must complete an application process and pay a $50 application fee for semester-long off-campus study programs. (See details under the Academic Regulations and Procedures section of the Catalog). Students should contact the Student Accounts Office for cost information and any related administrative fees. Tuition, room, board, fees and travel costs incurred by the student vary with each program. It is also important to consult with the Financial Aid Office for details regarding available financial aid. In some instances institutional financial aid is limited for off-campus study so there could be a reduction in a student’s financial aid award. However, there are outside awards available for which students may wish to apply.
