Distance Learning/Online Courses
Please note that students will receive one combined billing statement for main campus and/or distance learning courses. Distance Learning (DL) courses are billed in addition to main campus charges.
Effective with Fall 2014, students who are enrolled in 12 or more credit hours (undergraduate) or 9 or more credit hours (graduate) with the main campus, and are in one or more credit hours of Distance Learning courses, will NOT be billed for the Distance Learning courses.
This benefit is only allotted to students who are attempting either 12 or more hours of on campus undergraduate-level courses or 9 hours or more of graduate-level on campus courses. See the chart below for more information about the impact of Distance Learning courses on a billing statement:
|On Campus Credit Hours||Distance Learning Credit Hours||Assessed Charges on Bill|
|1-11 undergraduate hours||1 or more undergraduate hours||Costs of on-campus classes + cost of distance learning classes|
|12 or more undergraduate hours||1 or more undergraduate hours||Cost of 12 hours of on-campus classes only|
|1-8 graduate hours||1 or more graduate hours||Cost of on-campus classes + cost of distance learning classes|
|9 or more graduate hours||1 or more graduate hours||Cost of 9 hours of on-campus classes only|
A tuition surcharge is applied to an account when a student has attempted or exceeded 140 credit hours toward their undergraduate degree. If further assistance is needed pertaining to the tuition surcharge, contact the Registrar's Office for more details.
