Main Campus - Summer Tuition & Fees

In the summer, tuition and fees are charged on a per term/session hour basis (i.e., Summer Session 1 and Summer Session 2 are two separate terms) and fewer fees are charged than during the academic year. Beginning Summer 2023 students will be charged based on the student's program type (Boone/Hickory Campus or Appstate Online), and residency.  This is irregardless of the delivery method of the course.
