Method of Charging Tuition and Fees
Tuition and fees for Appstate Online are set for the full academic year - Fall through the following summer session. Rates, with the exception of Book Rental Fees, are charged on a per credit hour basis.
Fall and Spring terms are charged based fees based on program type (Appstate Online and Off Campus Site Based Programs or Main Campus Programs) and level of program. Tuition is assessed based on residency and level of program. Students who are enrolled in a program designated as an Appstate Online Program will be assessed fees at the Appstate Online Program rates. Note: This also includes Off Campus Site Based Programs that meet at an offsite location. Beginning in Fall 22’ if a student is in an Appstate Online Program or Off Campus Site Based Program all courses taken, regardless of location or delivery method of course, will be billed at the Appstate Online approved rates. Please note: Students charged the AppState Online Rate will not have access to all main campus services due to those fees not being assessed. Students enrolled in an Appstate Online may contact the Office of Student Accounts if the student wishes to opt-in to the Health Services Fee. If a student opt’s in, the full-time rate will be charged regardless of the number of hours the student is enrolled.
Summer rates are charged based on the location and delivery method, level of course (courses below 5000 are charged undergraduate rates) and residency status. For summer, courses delivered online are charged the Appstate Online rates regardless of program type (note- this is a change for Summer 2020).
