The student's residency status and the number of credit hours in which the student enrolls determine the tuition a student is to pay. Auditors, those enrolling in a course for no credit, pay the same tuition as those enrolled for credit. Students are required to pay their tuition and fees at the time of registration unless they present to the cashier written verification of a financial aid award, grant, scholarship, third party authorization letter, or have made prior arrangement for a loan.
Additionally, some courses have a fee. Required fees are published each semester in the Schedule of Classes.
Tuition charges are subject to change without notice.

Because student financial aid must be used solely for educational expenses, when a student receives a cash payment of financial aid and then withdraws or ceases to carry at least one-half of a full-time course of study, some of these funds may have to be repaid. If withdrawing be sure to go through official withdrawal.
