Tuition and Fee charges are billed each semester.  Twelve or more credit hours are considered full-time for undergraduate students and nine or more credit hours are considered full-time for graduate students.

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:
