Students who will be utilizing financial aid can review their Cost of Attendance in order to review both billable and non-billable expenses.

*Credit Units (CU) are divided by 3 to roughly compare cost per credit.

There are 14 CU (credit units) required for completion of the degree. Each credit unit is equivalent to one course (1 CU = 1 course). The total cost of the program will vary slightly based on how many classes you plan on taking per semester (full-time students typically have two 3-credit semesters and two 4-credit semesters).

Unless noted, all fees are based on the in-class rate. Please note classes administered online typically have a different fee structure and could include different fee structures.
