Tuition and Privilege Fees on the Polytechnic campus are charged each semester according to the above schedule, which is based on the student's number of credit hours and the type of tuition. Tuition for on-campus courses is charged at either the resident or non-resident rate, according to the student's residency classification. Click here for the Office of the Registrar's information about residency. Tuition for online or off-campus courses is charged at one rate regardless of residency classification. 

Click 'Rate Details' below to view other tuition types and the individual rates from which this schedule is calculated. Note that the schedule above is based on fall and spring Privilege Fee rates. Summer Privilege Fees are less than during fall or spring so a student's summer enrollment will be less than shown on the above schedule.
