Your World Campus tuition is calculated at a cost-per-credit rate based on the program you choose and the number of credits for which you register. In addition to the cost-per-credit, students are responsible for the information technology fee each semester of enrollment, as well as indirect costs such as books, DVDs, and other course materials. Use the tuition estimator to view the estimated costs to enroll in a specific program.

There are many ways to pay your World Campus tuition. Tuition is due when you register for classes, typically the month before the semester begins. However, a deferred payment plan is available for some programs. Learn more about payment options for World Campus.
