Billable tuition and fees for undergraduate students

Bachelor's degree estimates

See a second table lower on this page for associate degree estimates.


As you plan for a four-year education, we want you to be able to accurately predict the cost. That's why we have adopted a Tuition Guarantee Program for full-time, bachelor’s-degree seeking students who start here in fall 2018.

The program provides fixed tuition, select fees and room and board rates for the incoming class for four years. See details about eligibility, summer start and exceptions.
