The Adult Undergraduate tuition cost of $440 per credit is the same for online courses or on-campus courses. Many Adult Undergraduate students take an average of 6–8 credits per semester. Our admission or financial aid counselors can help you estimate your costs as accurately as possible. If you take 8 credits per semester for three semesters (Fall, Spring, and Summer), your tuition before any financial aid/grants/loans are applied would be $10,560 per academic year.

Living expenses and the cost for books and supplies can vary. Below, you will find an example of total costs to help you estimate your costs. Your financial aid counselor can help you determine what financial aid might be available to you.
