Tuition and Fees for NDS Students

Tuition rates for NDS students follow the same payment rates as degree-seeking students. Tuition rates can be found on the Student Services Center Website.

  • NDS Students who are considered Post-Baccalaureate Studies (PBS) will be charged at the same rate as students in the Graduate School. This means that PBS students taking ONLY Undergraduate courses will be charged at the Undergraduate student rate. However, if a PBS student takes ANY Graduate level courses, the entire semester will be charged for the Graduate level tuition rate.
  • NDS Students who are considered Undergraduate Studies (UGS) will be charged at the same rate as an Undergraduate student.
  • NDS Students who are only taking Distance Education courses will be charged the same rate as Distance Education students.
