Tuition & Fees

Tuition is calculated on a per-unit bases up to 14 units. To determine your cost for the year, please reference the 2017-2018 unit charges and multiply the number of units you anticipate enrolling in by the per unit rate. If you are enrolled in 15-18 units, the flat rate will apply. With both calculations you must add the applicable mandatory fees to your tuition cost to determine your bill for the year.
