Variable Charge Schools

University students enrolled in variable charge graduate schools are assessed tuition and fees based on their residency status, school of enrollment and enrollment credits. For tuition and fee assessment purposes, enrollment credits are classified as follows: regular credit, non-topical research, and audit.

Students enrolled for (1) regular credits only, or (2) regular credits plus non-topical research and/or audit credits, are assessed tuition and fee charges based only on the number of regular credits.

Students enrolled for (1) non-topical credit only, or (2) non-topical research credits plus audit hours, are assessed tuition and fee charges under the classification of “research”.

For information relative to course classification and academic requirements, students should contact their school.
