Paying For Classes

How much is tuition?  

The cost of the program is dependent on a variety of factors including Ohio residency, full-time or part-time enrollment, campus enrolled and courses taken. Non-Ohio residents taking ALL online classes are assessed the in-state tuition charge and an additional $10.00 per credit hour non-resident surcharge.  All online courses have a $12.00 per credit hour distance learning course fee. For a full list of tuition and fees along with payment deadlines please visit the One Stop for Student Services.

What if I schedule classes and don't attend? 

**BE ADVISED: Online students have the same add/drop and payment obligations as do in-class students therefore dropping classes once a semester starts can result in a Bursar balance. Please check withdrawal dates on the One Stop website or on Flashline>Student Tools>Print Student Schedule>(then click on each individual class "CRN").
