Everyone should have access to a world-class education.

We know that the true cost of college goes beyond the cost of tuition and we strive to minimize that cost for students.
How Much Does the Campus Scholars Program Cost?

Tuition is based on the number of credits for which you register.

The 2022-2023 tuition rate for the Campus program is $188 per credit hour. Tuition per quarter is determined by the number of credits you register for and students can expect their cost per be $2,256 (based on taking 12 credits).

Tuition for the entire program is estimated at $17,296 based on the current cost per credit rate.

For the current academic year (July 1, 2022, to June 30, 2023), the maximum Federal Pell Grant award is $6,895. In certain situations, an eligible student can receive up to 150 percent of their scheduled Pell Grant award for an award year; students might have heard this referred to as “year-round Pell.”

What About Other Costs Associated with College?

Campus Scholars do not have to pay any additional fees that are typically charged in degree programs. We hate surprise bills just as much as you do. Here are some fees and costs that you don’t have to worry about.

  • $0 application fee
  • $0 lab fee
  • $0 graduation fee
  • $0 charges for textbooks and required course materials

There is a small $150 non-refundable enrollment deposit fee that is directly credited toward tuition (ask your counselor how this can be waived!).
