Tuition for each Extended Studies course is charged in addition to tuition for any "Main Campus" credit hours and is established by the individual University Department/College offering the course. For questions about the tuition rate for a particular Extended Studies course, please contact the offering Department/College.

Mandatory Student Fees

Students are subject to FULL student fees when enrolled for both online and on-campus courses (courses with an in-person component).
