2015-16 Distance Education Tuition & Fees

Tuition and fees for all courses in Appalachian State University's distance education programs* are set each year by the North Carolina General Assembly in consultation with the University of North Carolina General Administration. Once set, they apply to the Fall, Spring, and Summer terms, inclusively, for that academic year. Distance Education tuition and fees are charged on a per semester hour basis with some small differences (some minor fees are a single set fee and others have minor incremental increases dependent upon the number of registered hours); thus, the number of registered hours multiplied by the per-semester-hour charge shown below is approximately the cost of tuition and fees for the stated term. Courses below the 5000 level will be charged at undergraduate rates; courses at the 5000 level and above will be charged according to Graduate level rates.

These rates are applicable from Fall 2015 through Summer I and Summer II of 2016.
