Tuition is a per credit hour fee and payment is made prior to the beginning of each course.   The cost of tuition for credit is $130 per credit hour.  Auditing a course allows the student to take a course, but not for credit purposes.  All work is still required when auditing a course, but no records or degrees are provided.  The cost for auditing a course is $90 per credit hour.  Courses designated solely as correspondence courses may be taken at a cost of $90 per credit hour.  It is the student’s responsibility to pay for all correspondence mailing costs as well.  There is a $25 service fee for returned checks.

                 SPOUSE CREDIT

 Spouses who enroll along with their husband/wife in the same class receive a 50% reduction in the cost of their tuition for credit.


Tuition payments are due on the first of each month.  A $25 late fee is posted after the fifth of the month if the minimum payment is delinquent.  All accounts must be paid in full before a student can take final exams.  All exams and records will be withheld for outstanding account balances.


The current registration fee for full-time and part-time students is $5 per credit hour.  Registration fees are non-refundable.  If more than one year lapses between a student’s completion of one course and enrollment in another course, the student will be considered as a new student and must reapply under the new student guidelines.


The comprehensive fee covers the cost of record keeping.  It includes the cost of mailing information to the student as necessary, keeping his file current, two official copies of the student’s transcripts sent at his discretion, and his certificate/diploma.  The cost is $5 per credit hour and is payable prior to the beginning of each course.  Additional transcripts are available at a cost of $2 each.


Books and materials are purchased by the student.  Text books are ordered through the school.  All textbooks and required materials must be purchased prior to the beginning of the course.


These fees are included in the tuition at this time.


Credits accepted by transfer from another college are subject to a fee of $10 per credit hour.


The registration fee is non-refundable.  Tuition fees will be refunded in full up to two weeks prior to the beginning of the course.  Between two weeks prior and two weeks after the course begins, 50% of the tuition will be refunded.  There is no refund after the course has been in session for two weeks.  Comprehensive fees are fully refundable up to two weeks prior to the course beginning, after which these fees are not refundable.  Books fees are only refundable prior to the beginning of a course and only if the books are returned in the same condition as they were when issued to the student. All returned books are subject to a 20% restocking fee.
