Tuition: The charge for tuition allows students to carry 12 to 16 hours each semester.

A tuition overload fee of $636 is charged for each credit hour over 16 in fall or spring, or over 4 in January term. Students enrolled in less than 12 hours in fall or spring pay part-time tuition of $636 per credit hour but will receive no institutional financial aid.

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.
