The tuition estimate total is based on the proposed 68 credit curriculum for this degree. If you have credit for any or all of the general education courses required, your tuition cost will reflect fewer credits during the first year of the program. Textbook costs for general education courses (if needed) cannot be predetermined and are not included in the estimate. Additional costs (tuition/books) associated with completing prerequisite or developmental classes will depend on individual academic circumstances, placement test evaluations, and are not included in the estimate.
