Tuition and fees are set to change for the 2019-2020 school year, according to the newly-released course catalog.

Full-time undergraduate semester tuition is increasing to $9,000 per semester, up from $8,450 the year before. However, the communications fee, student activity/health fee, and the technology fee will not be charged for the 2019-2020 school year, making the overall increase for undergraduate students total $300 per semester.

Part-time tuition and the overload fee will each increase by $15 per credit hour, up to $495 per credit hour. A typical course being three credit hours, this is a $45 increase per course.

Residential costs are being calculated differently next year. For semester students, the prices per term are:

  • Standard Residence Hall – $4,600
  • Single Room Residence Hall – $4,900
  • Single Room in a House – $5,000

Previously, a regular shared dorm room cost $4,350 per semester and a single room cost $4,625.

The president’s office did not respond to a request for comment on this story.
